    I keep getting mesages from Windows that I am running out of Virtual memory. it says to increase it through some paging file or something. How do i go about doing this?

    i am running windows 2000 Pro

    Right click My Computer, Properties, Advanced, Performance Options, Change.

    Best to let Windows manage it if you are not familiar with it. Just don't forget to click set! :bigthumb:

    Oh yea, this could also be a sign that A) you lack enough physical memory, B) You have a program with a memory leak (keeps sucking up RAM for no real reason), or C) Windows is trying to grow the page file but there isn't enough disk space.

    On your desktop, right click on my computer. A menu should appear. At the bottom, it should say Properties.
