Hello, :)

Can you also please post the amount of ram that you have. Also I see that you are running sp2 any reason for not updating to sp3? Also post the model number of the computer so that if I need to I can look up any other specs I may need. :)

Right click my computer»tab immediatly to the right of the tab its on (i think its been awhile since I've done this, can't remember the name of it off the top of my head) » should be an advanced tab click that, in the window that pops up should be 3 options dealing with virtual memory, choose system managed size.

Hehe actually your virtual memory is seperate from your physical memory (ram) virtual memory is located on your hard drive. Windows keeps active programs and such on it that are beibg constantly used.
