    BUY more RAM and install it.

    Virtual memory combines your computer’s RAM with temporary space on your hard disk. When RAM runs low, virtual memory moves data from RAM to a space called a paging file. Moving data to and from the paging file frees up RAM so your computer can complete its work.
    but it will slow your computer down to a virtual standstill.

    so if you are running low on virtual memory then your RAM must be maxed out.

    Click on Start, select Run and type %temp% and press Enter.
    The temporary internet files folder will open, delete all the files.

    To increase virtual memory u may have to increase the size of paging file, so check this link

    It might help you.

    I strongly recommend that you download CCLeaner from the Piriform website:

    I use this tool all the time on several machines to clean out my temporary files and unused keys in the registry, it is really quite foolproof and safe (it backs up any changes it makes to your registry so you can reverse them).

    Just check some of the reviews here:

    I hope that helps. There are some other useful free tools there as well! 😉

    When you install Windows the system sets up your Virtual Memory to about 1½ times the size of your RAM. It also takes into account the size of your Hard Disc drive and allows approx 10% of it’s free space size. So if your disc is nearly full it will start to have problems.

    First thing to stop your problem is to not to have too many programs open at once. Although you not actually using them they are running in the background and taking the RAM’s resources which then overspills into the virtual memory.

    Another way to help is if you right click on My Computer ► Properties ► Advanced ► Performance ► Advanced ► Virtual Memory ► Change the button setting to “System Managed Size” ► Click on Set ► Apply & OK ► The system will now ask you to reboot for the settings to take effect ► Click on OK.

    This now allows the system to be flexible and can adjust the Virtual Memory as required with out being fixed between two parameters. With a bit of luck that should solve your problem!

    You also might want to think about increasing the size of your RAM.

    As regards Temporary Files, they take very little space. People seem to get all worked up about them for absolutely no reason at all. Most of them are just links and are just updated all the time.

    Show you what I mean. I’ve just checked mine to give you an example and I don’t clean mine out for months at a time.

    Temporary Files. 351 objects, 149 MB

    Cookies. 4,374 objects, 2.47 MB

    Temporary Internet Files. 7,457 objects, 131 MB.

    Total 282.47 MB on a 160 GB drive!

    One of the things that are confused: Temporary Internet files is different from Temporary files!

    Temporary Internet Files are HTML files, images and other stuffs that Internet uses for accessing websites. You can delete these files from your browser:

    Internet Explorer: Internet Options>General>Delete… and there check the Temporary Internet Files and click the Delete button. Finish!

    Temporary Files are files used not by internet browser, but by the Windows, and other software. To delete them Start>Run and here type %temp% and there clean the files.

    AFTER ALL, you can clean both of them using Start>Programs>Accesories>System Tools>DISK CLEANUP.

    An useful website, that I’m sure you will like:
