If you right click my computer, properties, Advanced System Settings, Advanced (TAB), Settings (under Performance), Advanced, Change. You can change your virtual memory here. I suggest you let the system manage the size and make sure which ever drive it is on that you ahve at least the same amount of space free that you have for ram. e.g 4gb ram = 4gb disk space.
