How to lower commit charge in windows XP

My commit charge seems to always grow, as if the memory does not get release after I close programs.  I also tried to run Tune Up Utilitie's memory optimizer but it didn't help. Is there an other way to lower the commit charge?

The commit limit may be increased by either creating additional pagefiles or, if pagefile expansion is enabled, by expanding an existing one. The operating system will expand the pagefile automatically, if possible, when the total commit charge approaches the limit. In such an event a popup window will be displayed stating that "The system is running low on virtual memory."

Hi xterminator8,

Depending on your computer, you can buy more memory for your computer to make it faster.

I agree with this dude Dstew...Whoever he is...  Adding more RAM would alleviate this and RAM is not expensive at all right now.

Make it so bro

I have plenty of RAM and my page file seem to be set alright. In the picture, the 800 is too high, it doesn't add up to the total of the used column. I know there's the basic OS that doesn't show but it is still too high. I don't know how to close files that are not closed or something like that.

It used to be at 470 or so, and when I would close programs it would come back down to what ever it was before. Now it just builds up. I know I had a vundu problems but I manage to remove it (at least I think) from other post around.

pagefile defragmentation can provide noticeable performance improvement in some cases. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb897426.aspx

you help me understand a little bit more about pagefile. I guess there was no problem, I realized that programs nowadays just use more memory I guess.

The link that I'd sent describes the issue about page file, so I think that I must get points!!
