Virtual memory


  1. Right-click "My Computer" and choose "Properties"
  2. On the Advanced tab, under Performance, click "Settings".
  3. On the Advanced tab, under Virtual memory, click "Change".
  4. Under Drive [Volume Label], click the drive that contains the paging file you want to change.
  5. Under Paging file size for selected drive, click "Custom size", and type a new paging file size in megabytes in the Initial size (MB) or Maximum size (MB) box, and then click "Set".
Virtual Memory should be roughly 1.5 x the size of your installed RAM in case all data stored in Memory has to be written to the hard drive.
Don't forget to click "Set" after you entered the values, just clicking "OK" is not enough!

Just a tip: You can set the VM to "0", reboot your computer and then defragment the hard drive. When that is complete and you allocate the new VM space, it will reserve a continuous space on your drive, which results in better access times.

Let me know if you have any questions!

Adobe PDF Out of Memory


You cannot copy from Word to any pdf file. You can however convert a Word Document to a pdf document. If you are using Word 2007 you can download some complement to Word from Microsoft. I believe the name of the complement is Save as PDF. Once you install it on the computer, you will have the choice to save as pdf.
Another a;ternative is to download and install some virtual printers such as primoPdf or pdf Creator (there are many others.) the way it works with these virtual printer, is that they install a printer option. When you hit the print button, you will have the choice to select your true (physical) printer, or one of the virtual ones. If a virtual toPdf printer is selected, it will convert the Word document to a pdf file.

I want a shareware software to fix virtual memory. My laptop is too slow so i need something that will fix the virtual memory


The virtual memory is the Pagefile.sys in C:\
To defragment the pagefile, we first have to remove the pagefile, then defragment the machine, and finally recreate the pagefile. To do this, start by opening the System utility in Control Panel. (You may have to get there by clicking Performance and Maintenance from the Control Panel and then clicking System.) Then select the Advanced tab, click the Settings button under Performance, select the Advanced tab of Performance Options, and click Change to view your Virtual Memory settings:
Now select the No Paging File option and click Set. This will disable paging entirely and should also remove the pagefile (pagefile.sys) from the hard drive the next time you reboot your system.
If it doesn't do this, you can delete this file manually after rebooting. It's normally found in C:\

Reboot your machine, and when Windows comes up, use Disk Defragmenter to defragment the volume where your pagefile was previously (C: drive normally). Once your system is defragmented, open the Virtual Memory box again, and change the pagefile back to System Managed Size, OR set both the min and max to same size, 3 times your actual ram. This will help prevent the page file from becoming fragmented.
Then, reboot your machine again.

Note that one Gig is 1024 MB example: 3x1024=3072

If you find your pc still has issues, or the fragmentation gets worse, it likely you have malware or even virus on it that's creating the slowness issues. These should be cleaned out too.

Windows 7 Home Premium will not recognise the extension .ES$ which 'Expert - Personal Roots' applied to an old program which used Windows 95. Can W7 run such a program ?


No - the program is too old. But you can do something else: You can install a Virtual Machine program, like
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/
in 7, in the virtual machine you can install Win95 , in it you can install the program Expert - Personal Roots and with it open your file and save it in another generic format.

Virtual PC will not open


If you have Windows 7, 'native' Virtual PC will only be available and functional, regardless of the icon on task bar, if you have: 1) Windows 7 Professional or Ultimate 2) Hardware Virtualization 3) Your PC/Laptop BIOS has support for hardware Virtualization and you have enabled it. If you have all the above pre-requesite, I suggest that you re-download XP Mode and VPC from Microsoft site. If you do not meet the above requirements, you can always install a (free) alternate such as Microsoft VPC 2007 SP1 or better still (e.g. has USB support) VirtualBox. Hope it helps. Let me know how you go.

I have installed virtual pc in windows vista. in virtual pc i ave installed windows xp. in virtual pc my usb ports are not working


Virtual PC for Windows does not support USB devices (other than a mouse and keyboard ... which are not actually emulated via USB, but are simply "used" through the host) ... but just to confirm the "official" statement of this:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/824511/en-us

Unfortunately, Microsoft did NOT add USB support in Virtual PC 2007 (a widely anticipated addition that simply didn't happen).

VMWare Server DOES support USB devices (through the host) with some exceptions. From the documentation: "... Modems and certain streaming data devices, such as speakers and Web cams, do not work properly." You may want to read the details of using USB devices with a VMWare virtual machine starting on page 232 here: http://www.vmware.com/pdf/server_vm_manual.pdf

You can download Virtual Server for free here (You'll need to register and request a free key ... a painless process): http://www.vmware.com/download/server/
