Not enough virtual memory or paging file quota is available to complete the specified operation.

^That is the error message I keep receiving every time I start up my computer. I click OK, and then my computer restarts itself. I have done 2 system restores so far(from safe mode). It's driving me nuts! I've had computer problems since November, please help :S

What is new or different since the last time everything worked properly (ie, new hw, new sw, virus, error, etc)?

Please be more specific...when attempting to describe known system problems...particularly those which you seem to have put up with for a long time.

System manufacturer and model?

If you can, please follow the directions provided at http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic323892.html/page__p__1797792#entry1797792 .

How do you know that your computer problems began in November? What happened then to initiate or signal problems?

Louis

Well.. I got it back from repair in about November from a bad virus. Then installed AVG 2011 and Service pack 2, then uninstalled AVG(it was supposedly 'fighting' with my norton anti virus and that's how I got infected), and then.. this happened. Sorry, I'm not exactly sure, but my entire problem is discussed in this forum:

Sorry, I couldn't view that link because an error occurred.
Hmm.. Again, I'm not entirely sure. Please see the link I posted above for details on my entire problem.

So you had two AV's active at the same time. Okay. After you uninstalled AVG you did leave Norton AntiVirus running resident, correct? If the answer is yes, try booting to safe mode. Do you get the same message (I'm guessing not)?

Good. Just to confirm - you have only ONE anti virus utility active, yes?

Please run msconfig. Choose "selective startup" (uncheck EVERYTHING) and reboot. Do you see the virtual memory message? If so, we have to look elsewhere. But if not, start adding startup items back one or two at a time, rebooting after each change, until the message reappears and we'll have identified the offending process. Post back when appropriate please.

Okay, so after I last posted I didn't turn on my computer, until yesterday. My computer started up and it got as far as the XP logo, then a black screen came up, and it re-booted. It then kept repeating this process, so I had to go into safe mode. Obviously, the message didn't come up because my computer re-booted just before. If you checked out the link I posted, I'm back to that problem :(

Also, I did what you told me above, and now my internet on the sick computer doesn't work.(Currently working via laptop)

Oh, and also, I have norton antivirus on my computer right now. I'm not ENTIRELY sure if that's the only one running, but I also have malewarebytes.. if that counts?

So you did a selective startup in msconfig - is that correct? If so, when you reboot do you get into Windows? If so, do you see the memory error?

Ok, went to misconfig, ticked the boxes, and restarted. The message came up again. Now what? Oh, and I can't actually access my computer in "normal mode", the computer restarts after I click OK on the message.
