Welcome to BC!

PS: here is a brief discussion of virtual memory. The bottom line is that it allows programs to use hard drive space as RAM and move back and forth between them.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.

If you are interested how much Virtual Memory each file is being used, and you are running Windows XP, press CTRL+ALT+DEL to open up Task Manager. Click the Processes tab. Your computer may already have VM Size, but if it doesn't then click View -> select columns and check the box next to Virtual Memory Size then OK.

If you have any other questions, feel free to ask :thumbsup:
