Just lately i've been getting ever more frequently a pop-up menu stating that i'm "low on virtual memory". What does it actually mean, and would adding more RAM help. I currently have the original 256mb card installed. Any help would be appreciated. Cheers

Hi VoG, thanks for response.Here goes: Paging file drive C, custom size= initial size 384MB (max 768MB) Total paging file all drives= min allowed 2MB, recommended 382MB, currently allocated 409MB. Does this help?

Thanks guys. To VoG who asked for numbers: Total paging file for all drives = 384MB (yesterday it was 409MB) Recommended 382MB, Max 768MB. Do you think i should increase something to give more headroom, if its possible that is?
