Only over the last two days I have ben receiving the following message when I boot up (Im running XP):
WINDOWS - VIRTUAL MEMORY TOO LOW Your virtual memory system is too low. Windows is increasing the size of your paging file blah...blah...blah...
This warning stays on for a while, and appears to effect absolutely no change in my system, since the paging file stays at 384 Mb, the recommended size being 382Mb. Should I ignore the warning, or should I manually increase the size of the file, and if so, to what? ('System Management Control' is activated.)
Firstly, my RAM is 256 Mb, so 384 Mb should be ok Secondly (I've been here before!), it's certainly possible that there's too much in my start-up menu, but since I've no idea what most of the items in it are I'm reluctant to risk deleting any of them Any advice on this?
VoG - Thankyou: the startup list I got earlier was much less comprehensive. Now I can cross-reference from AndySD's list to my own; all I'll need then is to summon the courage to try it... In any case it's probably true that I need more memory. Thanks to you all
