One of my friends recently experienced a wired situation. His computer is getting slow as the system (WinXP) running. Even if he doesn't touch anything and leave the Windows running, the Page file (virtual memory) will add up by itself. In the morning when he just start his computer, his Page File will take about 350M - 400M. But As time goes by, in the afternoon about 5pm., the PF usage will exceed 5G.
There was no virus found by scaning. I help him uninstall the McAFee 8.5i, and reinstall McAfee 8.7i. Seems better than before because the PF usage increase became slower. But it still increase. However, the physical memory usage is always low. If I left the computer on overnight, the next morning, "virtual memory too low" messagebox shows up and the system will freeze.
Has anyone ever experienced this issue?
Thanks a lot!
