Are you sure it says 3mb?

What program is it? What O/S are you running?

The default of most windows versions I have seen is "allow windows to manage your virtual memory" and the minimum I have seen is around 140mb and the maximum is the total space left on your hard drive?

I am running Win 98SE with 512mb ram and have set my own virtual memory as "minimum 200mb" and "maximum 400mb". I haven't had any problems with virtual memory yet.

Control Panel -> System -> Advanced -> Virtual Memory. Click the "Change" button. Insert appropriate values and click "Accept". Reboot.

You shouldn't need to change it. Have you actually tried to run the program? What happens?
