I get a "no virtual memory" warning and computer locks up. While looking at the task manager I see the paging file increasing even with no programs running. Also, the cpu usage screen jumps around from 0 to 100%. Is it a virus? I ran McAffee virus scan but it showed nothing. Any help is greatly appreciated.
