My boy's desktop has a low memory warning problem that is a little different than some of the other threads I've read here.  He gets the warning when he plays SWTOR.  Task manager shows about 290 MB of memory in use during play with no leaking.  He has an SSD as the system drive with 140 GB free out of about 240 GB.  After going on the Microsoft boards, I tried to fix the problem by resetting the virtual memory settings to "automatically size paging file" and even a custom setting but the settings won't save following a restart and it always comes back saying that no virtual memory has been allocated.  The PC runs Win8 32 bit with a Core DUO E8400 and 4GB of RAM on the MB.  I'd be grateful for any suggestions/help.

Try to defrag your hard drive.

Don't think you defrag an SSD.

Well, you mean the system drive is on HDD, and also have large free space. So, it may be caused by:

1.spyware/malware

2.memory leaking application

 

PS: Try to use system restore to fix this problem!

Thank you, I'll try system restore.  To clarify, this PC has no HDD.  It has only an SSD, which is the C: Drive and which has the OS on it.  SWTOR is not leaking memory - I've checked.  I didn't see any other process leaking either.  If system restore doesn't work, I guess it must be spyware . . . .
