[attachment=7334:attachment][font=Verdana][b]Hi Everybody, Here lately I have been getting a notice that Windows is increasing my "Virtual Memory".

OK, but I have no idea what that is, or why Windows has to increase it. Can someone tell me just what virtual memory is, and why Windows is increasing it sometimes twice a week?

I am running Windows XP Home with SP 2 installed, and I don't play games, or do any graphics work.

I am attaching a picture of the notice that I keep getting just in case I'm not explaining it good enough.

Thanks to anyone for any information about this.

♥ Wendy

Hey just cause you're here, where do I ask about finding out if I have a keylogger on my PC?

Thanks Wendy
