I recently upgraded from 512MB to 2.00GB of memory. Using 2 - 1GB sticks. I was getting 'low-virtual memory' pop-ups. After the upgrade, I still am. A friend had me reset my paging files. No paging on Drive C:, where I have XP and all my programs...and 3069 min, and 3069 max on drive F:, which is just storage, no programs. I still get the pop-up. He is telling me I may have a memory leak, that I should not be getting the pop-ups. I have HiJack This, should I need to run it and post a log.

Here are 2 (I had to do 2 because all the tasks running) screenshots of my Task manager and what is running and the memory usage.

First, what is the size of the page file?

Second, open Task Manager, click on the "View" tab, click on "Select Columns" and in the window that opens select "Virtual Memory Size", click OK.

You will be able to see how much Virtual Memory each process is using. Some use more Virtual Memory than Ram. Right now I am using Opera browser. Ram shows 47,560k but VM shows 57,280k.
