Low Virtual Memory – What to do ?

If you are a lazy person like many computer wizards, you would have encountered an annoying pop-up window many times, which notifies you that you are running on low virtual memory, and Windows is trying to increase it. If it happens once in a while, then its OK. Nothing to worry about. But if it happens repeatedly, then you need to take action, because now it has started affecting the performance of your PC.

A few simple steps.

  • Open Control Panel > System.
  • Click on Advanced tab
  • Click the Settings button in the Performance panel.
  • Click the Advanced tab.
