(I'm not looking for any tips on how to conserve or improve memory space.)

I have a ton of memory on my computer, but when I'm in certian programs, the popup notification box, telling me my memory is low, annoys the bloody hell out of me and honestly, I DON'T CARE!!!

I have it on the right settings, the ones I like, for memory usage, so it won't interferre with my programs.

Please... just make it stop...

Hi werehyena. Welcome to BleepingComputer.

If your pagefile is set to 1.5 times your physical memory, you shouldn't get that message very often. I know this is not the answer to your question but increasing the size of your pagefile should eliminate your problem.

Hi werehyena, welcome to BC. :thumbsup:
The "Low Virtual Memory" warning is a hardcoded in "system" warning. You can suppress the warning but the drawback is that other system warnings called from the same location will also be suppressed. In other words, you could miss a warning that you don't want too. That said, there are 3 registry entries you will have to check\create. See the two links below. I would suggest you do them one at a time starting with the first link, then test. The second link addresses paging, which is directly related to virtual memory. Chances are you will have to apply all 3 however.

I know this isn't what your asking for but going by the warning message and how you described it, i thought i better explain this.

Virtual memory is completely different from RAM/System memory. Your virtual memory is set too low. Some programs use virtual memory for certain things it doesn't have to access as often as what is stored in memory, or it isn't vital to get it immediately. So even thought you might have 4gb of ram, you still need a decent pagefile. As a basic draft, every computer i work on with pagefile/low virtual memory problems, i take the tick out of system managed size and set the minimum as 4092 and maximum as 4095. That will definately fix your problem.

While all you want is a fix to turn off the warning - of grreater concern is what's causing it. A malfunctioning program can 1) give these warnings and 2) can cause corruption in other running programs.

Your choice...
