  Peter C 00:25 23 Sep 2004

my computer:
packard bell
celeron 1.53ghz
512mb ram
nvidia gforce4 64mb
80gb hard-drive (59.7gb free)

if i run say, photoshop 7, flash mx, aol 9 broadband, winamp 5, after 20 odd minutes everything gets gradually slower, until pretty unusable most of the time. sometimes get the message pop up in the bottom right of the screen saying 'low on windows virtual memory'.

can anyone help? thank you. 8-)
