Adding more RAM (memory) may also be a good idea as this will reduce the need for virtual memory to be used in the first place.

    2.In the System Properties dialog box, click the Advanced tab.
    3.In the Performance pane, click Settings.

My vitual memory

it means the amount of hard drive free space is either low or it means you must increase the limit of this space. first remove any un-necessary files by doing the following: 1.) open explorer and click c drive. 2.) right click and select properties 3.) select "disk cleanup" now select the Tools tab above and select "check now" now select "Defragment now" next, right click "my computer" on desktop then select Advanced tab and select "settings" then select next Advanced tab and select "change" in the virtual memory area. type in the maximum under custom size and select "set" and ok out.
