Well it looks like you have a program loading the is causing your pagefile to bloat and therefore you get the low on virtual memory error.

Go to your Task Manager (Ctrl+Alt+Delete) look in the Processes Tab and see which program is eating up all your memory.

This can also be caused by Adware &/or Malware.

How much ram do you have? What is the size the pagefile is set to?

Do you have more than one hard drive? (real not a partition)

If you do, move the pagefile to the second drive.
