What you are doing is forcing the system to do something it is not normally meant to do.
You need to add more ram to fix it correctly.
I suspect that you will eventually see issues in other areas.
The guideline that the previous poster gave me as a resource as to what is happening actually says to determine your paging file and not listen to some ridiculous standard given out by magazines, windows, microsoft, etc. So that 1.5x he laughs at and I quote that from the guide you sent me.
Clearly the guide says to watch your peak and set it above that because the allowed amount of space is the space going to be used but when applications go above the amount selected and not the amount actually there it will cause crashes.
Now I was able to in the past actually make my commit charge run full speed and use every single bit of before just not via the game. I saw absolutely no harm in doing that because I was making a video via windows movie maker. Using 50% of the space given to me doesn't make sense especially when most of it never gets used it just sits there idly standing by. Increasing it has allowed me to get to use it and hit a new peak which is still smaller than the peak the system has.
What I wasn't able to do is get past the available *physical memory* which is much different and that actually requires more ram which is what I was afraid of.
If only norton wasn't taking up over 30,000+ physical memory.
Is there a way to turn norton off without uninstalling it? So that I can get CCSVCHST.EXE to stop running and taking up the available memory left so that the game can run smoother? Press alt cntrl dlt and going into processes and trying to shut it down from there doesn't seem to work.
