    I have a fast computer with 500+ megs Ram and Windows XP Home. Protection is McAfee firewall and McAfee virus protection; AOL spyware scan and blocker. I run virtually all standard programs: Word, Word Perfect, Excel, Quicken etc.

    I have repeatedly been getting "Virtual memory too low" messages and "Windows is temporarily increasing your minimum virtual memory but some applications may not open" Shortly after if I'm running several different programs, something usually crashes.

    Now I am about as computer ignorant as they come. I've read the windows help file and it tells me how to increase the VM but doesn't say how much to increase it. What is the number I should put in there? If I put in too much will it hurt my computer or screw up anything?

    Any advice will be much appreciated.

    Dear Friend


    There could be two possible reason

    1. Virtual memory Leak which some time occurs due non standard installed software or curroupt software and also due to windows (operating system ) corruption which is quite uncommon in Windows Xp

    2. As you have written that you have hundereds of program ( software installed) which are using all the available memory
    try no uninstall all the unneccasary programmes ( softwares) that you dont use and I think it will help while if the Windows Xp is corrupt then I am afraid you have to reinstall the operative system

    Double the ammount what you have now. If you do not know how much you have now then increase it to 4.5GB
