I am a computer technician in Toronto Canada. I support over 100 computers from different customers. Most of them are Windows XP. For just over a month now I am getting random computers popping up with this message for no reason. When I run "process explorer" or taskmanager on these computers, they are usually over 2GB of memory used in "Total Commit Charge" with no process claiming the virtual memory. Almost all the XP computers have the same software, XP-home or Pro, AVG 2015, google chrome #37 or 38. My home computer did it to me the other day also.
I have been trying to figure this one out for a month. Rebooting the computers brings the memory back to about 400mb.
Any suggestions? I cannot find much on this subject on the internet but I found this post. (by the way, the computers ALL have "let windows manage my virtual memory" set.
I have not seen this error message popping up since the computers all had 512mb of memory 10 years ago.
If I figure out why this is happening I will post more information. Do you want me to run your utilities on one of the workstations that this is happening regularly on?
