Increasing virtual memory

  Big Nate 21:06 03 Sep 2010

Lately I have been receiving this message: "Windows is low on virtual memory, and is increasing the size of your virtual memory." Is there any way I can increase the virtual memory manually on my computer? Thank you

Yes - in XP it is My Computer>Properties>Devices>Advanced>Performance tab

Ooops, sorry - miss out 'Devices' ...
