Windows XP Virtual Memory
I have Windows XP Home, SP3, IE8, OE6. Everything is on auto-update and my system is 100% up-to-date.
I am not a big user absorbing huge amounts of the Internet, but just an interested surfer.
My Free disc space is 64 GB, I scan for virus`s and malware every day with an assortment of security programs, 4 of which have real-time protection. I feel I can do no more regarding security and threat protection. My set is perfectly clean at present from any infections.
I have ;-
COMODO IS, my only Firewall except the Windows Firewall which is enabled.
TOOLBARS ; GOOGLE, CRAWLER ( linked with ST )
I use HIBERNATE all the time, sometimes left for hours. If IE and OE are buttoned on the task bar but left open, the VM problem is usually worse.
All are updated daily.
For no apparent reason, I am often getting warning messages from Windows that my Virtual Memory is too low, with the added comment that although Windows is increasing my VM, systems are likely to be either slow or fail.
Often the CPU is very high, 100% at times.
I then have to break off what I am doing, save any work, shut down and re-boot, to sort it out. All very annoying.
I am on Windows VM control - no personal settings and my RAM is the standard 512 MB with 64 MB allowed for graphics. I have tried an assortment of settings for VM, but it makes no difference and my pagefile fragments.
HELP ! Can anybody explain the possible cause of all this and offer some solutions ?
