welcome to Geeks 2 Go tikitime... :)

reboot...
now what is your swap file set to...
right click on my computer..properties...advanced tab...in the performance area click on settings
then the advanced tab again...what does is say in the virtual memory
The most common culprit is what's called a "memory leak". This is when a program running on your PC reserves some of your computer's memory for itself, and then loses track of it. The net effect is that the program loses the ability to release that memory for other programs to use. And if a program has a memory leak in some operation that it performs regularly, it can slowly eat up more and more of your system's memory until there's little left for any other programs.
for the complete lowdown including how to figure out the misbehaving app ..go here..
