My win XP PC keeps popping up a message at the task bar about "Low Virtual Memory". This only stopped for a while when I expanded the virtual mem size?But then few days after, again it started to appear and I just kept ignornig it.Should I do the same thing each time it shows up.Will this affect my hard drive space and some other programs installed.Any help?Thanks in advance

How much RAM does your computer have?

Is the hard drive almost full?

Have a look in the Task Manager to see what is eating up all your RAM.

This PC has 128 mb ram.
Right now available ram is just 18764 but sometimes when I do chat with web cam on , it goes down to as little as 6000 ram.Hard drive space is now a little more than half of the total space.

Your problem is that you only have 128MB of RAM. Although XP can run on as little as 64MB, you really need at least 512MB to run it effectively. With only 128MB of RAM you have to make sure that you do not run many applications at the same time, or you will always run into these problems.

I had the same problem, but I had 512 mb of RAM. I had to give it 1 GB. (Of course I do run some large programs).
