Message Saying 'virtual Memory Is Low' Keeps Coming Up?

My computer is always coming up with a message that says 'windows virtual memory is low' and yet I dont even run that many programs. granted my computer is old and I should probably buy more memory for it - though i can't afford it - but is there a program or process i should run for my computer to make the most of the memory it has and therefore run more smoothly, and therefore not flash the message 'low on virtual memory' up at me all the time?

Virtual Memory Low Message / Windows Virtual Memory Minimum
I keep getting the error message that my Windows virtual memory minimum is too low. I have Microsoft Windows 2000 and the following settings: total paging file size 205 MB; minimum 2 MB; Recommended 190 MB; Currently allocated 205 MB; current registry size 21 I'm not the system administrator so I can't change these numbers. I also couldn't find the pagefile.sys that someone suggested looking for. My IT guys don't know what's wrong; they reformatted my computer but I got this error message again. What should I tell them to do?

Error Message - Low Virtual Memory
I get a message telling me my virtual memory is too low. This usually happens when I run an anti spy/ad programme. This happened once after I ran an AVG anti spy system scan and twice when I ran a panda scan. Is this a genuine message or a fake from a virus/spywear?

Consistent Low Virtual Memory Message
I've been having this problem for a while now, everytime I turn on my computer I have to wait for 15 minutes or so because my virtual memory is "low" and that windows is trying to increase it. After that, everything runs smoothly but restarting is a hassle because I have to repeat the process of waiting and it's frustrating especially when I'm doing homework. Until recently when I checked my task manager and saw oleutil.exe eating up my memory. Then I tried to end it while I was in the middle of waiting and my PF Usage suddenly dropped and everything's normal again but my CPU Usage skyrocket to 100% all of sudden but other than that everything's normal.

System Slow After Virtual Memory Low Message
Computer keeps alerting me that my virtual memory is low. As a result, my system loads extremely slow and I have to force a shut down when I'm ready to quit. I did a ctrl-alt-delete to view my processes and it appears that my scanning processes are 80K of memory. Next in line is internet explorer using 50K.

System Shows Virtual Memory Low Message
Continually getting the message that my virtual memory is low. Often my computer just locks up. I doubled the memory allocation, but it made no difference. I have Mcafee's virus scan running all of the time and I leave on the machine always. After I reboot it may take hours for it to happen again but it always happens. I saw something similar on another thread about removing programs from the startup file, but I was unable to find the msconfig file.

System Getting Popup Message For Low Virtual Memory?
I upgraded a Dell 4400 computer for my daughter which came with 128 MegRAM, 120 GigHD, P4-2 Gig. I added an additional Gig to what was thee but did not think to increase Virtual Memory (originally custom set by Dell about 360 Meg).When she is trying to do Excel files on her account while her husband keeps his place on the Internet (ball scores)- they often get the message "Windows Virtual Memory is low".

Virtual Memory Is Low - IE Takes Up Memory
I was running Outlook, AIM, and IE at the same. After a few moment, I'd get this following message:

Your system is low on virtual memory. Windows is increasing the size of your Virtual Memory Paging file. During this process, memory requests for some applications may be denied.

When I hit OK, all my applications would close, except my Outlook. I'm running Win2K with 512 memory. My computer is only 1.5 years old. I didn't play any games or download anything so it's not heavily used. But why the message then?

Virtual Memory Is Low
I have been receiving messages that my virtual memory is low. The computer is running slowly and frrezing at times. I ran a scan with a programme called RegCure and it found 996 errors. Of course I have to pay for the programme to remove the errors. Does anyone know if this programme is any good, or is there another one that would do the job - maybe a free one? My operating system is Windows XP.

I am having repeated messages with low virtual memory for my desktop. I'll have programs stop working with low memory messages, can't load another program message, things wont print.

I changed it to custom 3000 mb min,4096 mb max. rebooted. went back to control panel and virtual memory was still at 764 where it says total paging file for all drives current 764. but higher up in the panel it says c: 3000-4096. How do i get the memory problem solved?

Virtual Memory Minimum Too Low
I'm stuck have a friends XP machine that is behaving oddly. When it boots, in normal or safe mode, I receive a dialog box once the user selection screen is displayed with the title "virtual memory minimum too low". Then an explanation that XP is going to re-adjust it. At this point everything is hung. At the time I got the machine, there indeed was only 200M left on the C drive, but even when I expanded the partition and gave it 25G free, I still get the message.To make matters worse, I can't seem to boot any CDs in the drive so I have to work on the drive on my machine.This also means I can't boot an XP disk to do a repair/re-install. Was it really low and now just can't get past the message even with the expanded drive?

Low Virtual Memory Warning?
My system is a Dell Windows XP (SP-3) All Windows Updates are installed and I have 512 MGS of RAM. On Start Up, there is not a lot of extra programs running in the background, and most of the time, my system runs fast. (I use MS Config.) Today, however in my System Tray, I got a Low Virtual Memory Warning Message. What does this mean? I use IE 8 most of the time and occasionally Firefox 3.5.The other thing that I noticed is that from time to time when I right-click on the desktop, I will get a momentary fade-out before the options come into view on the screen. The same thing will sometimes happen when I right-click on my Avast Anti-Virus ball in my System Tray. I only use the computer for Word Processing, e-mail and basic Web Browsing. The computer was purchased in October 2004. Why would I be getting this warning?
