I keep getting this message popping up from the task bar.It doesn't seem to cause a problem but I wonder why it keeps appearing.

Check that your hard drive is not nearly full.

For most people letting windows manage the virtual memory is best.

To check what yours is set to go to Start,right click on My Computer and select properties.On the box that opens up select the Advanced tab and then click on Settings in the Performance box.Now select the Advanced tab and click on the Change button in the Vitual memory box.Lastly make sure that the System managed size bitton is ticked and ok out.If it was set at anything else(like custom) you will need to restart your pc to effect the change.

I've readStuartli's link and I'veincreased the size of the virtual memory and that seems to have worked .Thanks for the instructions, gudulf.
