Question about Computers & Internet
You can increase your virtual memory settings. To do this follow these steps:
Press and hold the Windows Logo Key + press "pause break" key to access System Properties, note the amount of RAM it states before continuing, you will need it for a calculation. (xxxmb)
Select Advanced Tab > Under Performance click Settings > Click Advanced Tab > Under virtual memory click Change button >
Set the Minimum and Maximum to a number 1.5 times the physical amount of RAM that you have. (Providing you have less then 512mb. 2.5x for 1gb or greater.) Hit set, Hit apply.
Before restarting, you may want to consider reducing some of the Visual Effects of XP to gain some resources back.
Manually un-check the boxes listed on the Visual Effects tab that you encountered right before setting the virtual memory.
You can also click "adjust for best performance" for an automatic trim.
This will solve your issue.

Right click on the My Computer icon on the desktop and select "Properties". How much RAM do you have in your computer? If you have 256MB or less, it is not enough.
(Note: If you do not have a My Computer icon, go to Start>Control Panel. If in Classic View double-click "System". If in Category View, click on "Performance and Maintenance", then click on "System".)
Another way to determine the amount of RAM you have is to go to www.crucial.com and run their scan application. It will tell you how much RAM you have, how much your computer will hold and what kind it takes.
Oh, RAM stands for Random Access Memory. It's what your computer uses to run the programs. The newer the operating system, the more it takes. XP needs more than Windows 98. Vista needs more than XP. And so on.
If you need more advice comment back with the information about your computer and we can make some recommendations.
