To answer your question as to , " ... I was wondering what might have caused this. It seems to happen when I am using Windows Movie Maker, and only since I downloaded some Movie Maker Updates one of which i installed and is a compilation of Video Effects."
Video editing , creating , manipulation can be very resource intensive which quite possibly explains your increased need for more Virtual Memory , so good idea as happyrock said to increase it .
When your Computer has used all available RAM ,a part of your Hard Drive allocated as a paging , or Swap file is used to make up for the lack of available memory . It is not the same as RAM , as it is slower being on your Hard Drive , but obviously does the job .
Have you re-scanned and seen if the CWS infection has gone ?
I have scanned several times and Spybot has turned up Cool WWW Search and I have instructed Spybot to fix the problems.
You could use this tool CWShredder™ as another way of confirming you do not have CWS . ( CoolWebSearch ; a name given to a wide range of different browser hijackers. Though the code is very different between variants, they are all used to redirect users to coolwebsearch.com and other sites affiliated with its operators. )
