1) Keep getting "Windows Running Low on Virtual Memory Message". This is NOT a problem with Virtual memory as I've tried changing the setting to "system managed", 1.5 the size of my RAM etc. I have just re-installed Windows XP and I deleted the old partition and created new one, I did complete formatting with NTFS. After my first boot into Windows I started getting the above message after a couple of hours of being up.
There are no services in the background that are causing this, nothing loads at start up that would cause this, it is some kind of setting/driver/hardware issue. I have tried all of the typical solutions and none of them worked. Once again the problem starts happening at the first boot up after install of Windows XP. I've had Windows XP before and never received this message with the same hardware, originally this laptop came with Vista but installed XP by completely wiping everything and had XP working for a couple of years without any problems. Recently, I've had to re-install recently and now keep getting the above message after a couple of hours of being up.
2) Shut-down takes 10-15 minutes.
Everything else works perfectly.
This must be some kind of issue with the install of Windows XP.
Any help would be appreciated, please don't suggest doing the standard chckdisk, running defragger, increasing virtual memory size or getting more RAM. I've tried all that and again the problem starts occuring during the 1st boot after windows xp install. I've tried complete partitoning, formatting and windows install twice with the exact same behavior.
Any advice would be appreciated.

Move to Windows XP forum as this is not a malware related issue. ~ OB
