By having low virtual memory. (only kiddin)You get this message when you are low on available virtual memory, i.e. The memory that the computer needs now. There are a number of ways to approach this, the easiest being look at your startup folder and stop all non-essential programs. If that doesn't work you probably need more RAM. As a guess, you have 256 MB? Try downloading everest home edition from www.lavalys.com and it will tell you a lot about your system. More RAM is usually the answer, and not optimizers, accellerators, or changing the way virtual memory is handled by windows. RAM is cheap, and not really hard to install. For more detailed advice, you need to include your system specs, which everest will give you. Good luck!
Spike's advice: Backup your data routinely.
