I have been using photoshop for a while.  About a week ago i reloaded windows and upgraded from a 1Gb of ram to 2Gb.  I still seem to being getting the message.  i installed free ram xp pro and seems to be using about 600Mb to 1Gb  but never really more.  My cpu load dosen't really go over 25%.  Is there some settings that i need to change?

Hello chadaort!

Ensure your pagefile is configured correctly.

For 1GB it should be:

Initial:  1536
Maximum:  3072

You should also make sure your primary Scratch (Photoshop) and Page (Windows) files are on seperate partitions/hard drives.
