Default Virtual memory settings

I read somewhere that spyware can change your virtual memory settings which will result in your system running slower. if it did do that how would you change them back?

I thin the recommended size is based on the size of you HDD. My recommended size is 1521MB on a 100GB HDD. I don't now what the other's "should" be... Try scanning for syware if that's what you think the problem is. You can click system managed size and Windows will manage the size for you.

Default Re: Virtual memory settings

Is it weird that mine is running 1536 MB on the C drive and it can go up to 3072MB as a maximum. Should I leave it as it is?
