I received notice that my virtual memory minimum is too low. I know how to
increase the file size-currently it's 473 MB. But what kinds of things
should I look at to decrease my usage--i generally only email and have a few
pics etc
I'm a novie, so novice language would help--thanks!
Windows XP SP 2

Let windows manage it. Don't set it yourself:
Right click "My Computer">properties>Advanced>Performance
settings>Advanced (performance options)>virtual memory (change)

Then when you get to the virtual memory window, left-click the "system
managed size" button, right-click "set" and say OK to everything as you
back out of the windows.

Repeat the above sequence if you have special needs but it's usually
better to let Windows manage you virtual memory.
