    Virtual memory will report as 'low' if you have made manual changes to the
    setting, or if your drive has less than 15% free space left.. assuming that
    you have made no changes to the default virtual memory setting, look for
    ways to clear excess files from your hard drive..

    Double click on My Computer.. then right click on the C drive icon and
    select 'properties'.. the ensuing window will show used and free disk
    capacity..

    You could start by using XP's own 'Disk Clean'.. or if you have a drive that
    is partitioned, you could move files that you have generated or saved to the
    other partition.. you CAN'T move program files in this way..

    Lisa, the page is a very thorough, well thought out description of what a
    page file is and how it works, but I bet it will leave you with one gnawing
    question; 'well, what should I do then?'..
