Go to the control panel. Go to system. Go to the advanced tab. Under performance, press the settings button.

Press the advance tab.

Below virtual memory is a change button. Press that.

Press the custom size radio button. press ok.

It will ask you to restart your computer.

Make sure you have plenty of free space on your drive as well.

An added on attachment sent to my e-mail wont open when i click it

Since you did not specify the attachment extension like .pdf or .jpeg or anything other we cannot know what program to offer to you unless we know what type of attachment it is. If you could re-post the type of file it is and more information about your computer it would be a good assistance to us. So I can only tell you that you will need to get the program that will open that type of file. Thanks for using FixYa! John

You need to tell your computer what program you select to open your image files. click on the image you want to open and choose 'open with' as your defaul6 program to open these files 4' then to find your adobe program . Go to Programs ;Adobe and then photoshop (or whateve) program you want to be the default program and select the icon to choose this as the default program to open your jpeg or tiff files or whatever you are having a problem opening. I hope this answers your question.

I am trying to uninstall print master from my computer and it wont let me. I am trying to get more memory because my computer says it is to low memory. I can free up alot of space if I could get this...

Are you uninstalling with Control Panel/Remove Programs? And it still will not let you remove it? Make sure that you are not showing the program as "in use", you can check with Task Manager (Ctrl+Alt+Del) and stop it if it is running. This will only save room on your Hard Drive, perhaps programs you are using are complaining about System Memory.
Ways to upgrade your memory vary from computer to computer, and laptops seldom take more than 2GB while Desktop computers can often take as much as 16GB of RAM. I hope all this was of value to you in the solution of your problem.

I believe I have a virus or worm that Norton cannot detect

Ok. How much space do you have free on your hard-drive right now? (I'm assuming that you know how to check this).

If its low, then maybe you didnt free up enough space on the drive. If it is high however, then answer this: is the message you are receiving telling you that you are low on disk space? or is it telling you that it is low on virtual memory space?

if its low on virtual memory, then the problem could be many including 1) virus etc 2) a program is running that is using up more RAM than is avaivable 3) you need more RAM on your system.

if its low disk space, then the problem could be 1) You need to free up more disk space (that may mean getting a bigger hard-drive installed)

Try using an updated virus scanning utility. If it says that you are virus free, then try one of the solutions above.

Low disk space in Windows XP but I only had less program.

Is your computer's "automatic updates" on? With all the available updates the window's size come upto 12Gb. And if you haven't changed the Windows Page file area it would use your C:/  by default. Try changing the page file area. Go to Properties in My computer>Advanced TAB>Performance "click on settings">Advanced>Under "virtual memory" click change. And change the location of virtual memory to some other drive. And also do not forget to select "no paging file" for Drive which is low in memory. Try this it might work. And yes, as asked by Bonji5555, run file clean up once in a while. and defragment your disks. There are many free disk defragmentors available over the net, google and find one for yourself. Windows have a built in defragmenter but its really slow.
Good luck!

Low hard drive memory due to invisible files using 90% of available space (apparently?)

if you click on start and type "Computer Management" select it, click on "Disk Management" tell me everything it says about your "c" drive.

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.
