Right click my computer, select properties, advanced, and check that your virtual memory is being managed by the system.

Unless you know exactly what you're doing, this is the best setting

Virtual memory is simply when all the RAM (random access memory) is being used (for example if there are many programs open at the same time) the computer will transfer data to the hard drive and back to give the impression that there is slightly more memory.

I used to have a virus valled ameana. since getting it on my pc, my virtual memory would disapear after about half an hour, untill no program's would open. I'd get an error message saying there was not enough memory to open the program =D If this happens to you, then just try increasing your paging file slightly. If you're programs are running fine, then i wouldn't worry about it. 9/10 people get this message on their PC's.
