Virtual memory is when part of the hard drive is used as virtual (temporary) memory when the normal memory is running low,If you are getting error messages about virtual memory then it can be increased,Which O/S are you using.

I am also getting warning messages about being low on virtual memory. I am using XP home and the virtual memory was set at an inital level of 144 and a maximum of 288. How far can I safely increase these values.

Virtual Memory as above ...As for the processor upgrade it will depend on your present Motherboard as to what it can support if you know the make/model post it here and we can check for you.
