Hi. Try to set it so windows chooses how much virtual memory it uses. Right click on My computer, click the advanced Tab, click setting where it says performance, click the advanced tab (agian), where it says virtual memory click change, click on where it says system manage size, after click set, then apply. It will reboot your pc for it to take affect. Hope this helps.
