Here's a link that will help in understanding Virtual Memory and giving some pointers in how to trouble-shoot the issue.

As you progress with your investigation, please feel free to ask specific questions as they arise.

Uninstall - Reinstall of the game application will often clear this up.
I know.... that can be cumbersome with many of the larger game loads. :)

We might be able to give you more constructive recommendations with a good overview of your machine's configuration and present performance.
Please consider doing the following:

Please Run the PCPitstop Full Tests, here:
http://www.pcpitstop.com
Register and create a password
Accept the ActiveX component to allow your machine to run the Full Tests
Registering and accepting the ActiveX are both SAFE and FREE.
Full Tests is the first item in the left hand column of that page.

The Full Tests take less than 5 minutes for most machines.
Once you have your Results, please post the TechExpress Link back here into this thread for review.
TechExpress is the last item on the list in the yellow box in upper right area of any Results page.
Post the entire URL link information back here into this Forum thread.

Caution: During the testing of Video Adapter, a variety of patterns, shapes, colors and text are “flashed” onto the users monitor screen. In the many thousands of daily uses of the PCPitstop Full Tests over several years, two individuals who suffer epilepsy experienced discomfort and temporary dizziness when viewing the flashing patterns.
If you know that you are susceptible to photo driven seizure, look away from your screen during the Video Adapter testing sequence.
