Go to
Control Panel -> Performance and Maintenance -> System -> Advanced (tab) -> At performance click Options -> Advanced (tab) -> Virtual Memory click change. Make sure C: drive is highlighted, then choose custom, and change the first value to 1500 and the second to 1550.

Also, do you mind posting any currently running processes -from task manager- that have a memory usage above 40mb?

Microsoft Help and Support
See "How to manually change the size of the virtual memory paging file". This is the same procedure, only change it to the values 1500 and 1550.

i went and bumped up the initial settings to 1500, and the max to 1550.

k.
files going above 20 mb:

wlcomm.exe 22,776k

Mcshield.exe 59,828k

firefox.exe 52,260k

svchost.exe 28,696k

thats all of them. thanks.

EDIT

disreguard some of them, as i only just realised you said 40 mb not 20

It's OK, I 'd say you don't have to get rid of anything.

Please, post some computer info:
- processor type, amount of RAM (hold Windows logo key, hit Pause/Break key)
- hard drive size/free space (open "My Computer", right click on hard drive letter, click "Properties")
- installed security programs (antivirus, firewall)
