Your computer did not matches the recommended requirements for using Windows XP. I seriously recommend you to upgrade your RAM from 256 to at least 1GB for a casual performance of Windows and other applications you might want to run on it.

Your virtual memory errors are because of the lack of enough memory to allow the system to run correctly.
256 megs of memory is barely enough to run XP alone not counting other programs and for sure the autoruns and startup programs you have running.
First issue like everyone has said is to increase your memory to 1 gig. This will increase your virtual memory automatically.

Go to HERE and run the Crucial online scanner.
This will give you the exact memory configuration for your system.
You do not have to buy the memory from there, but write down the information and if you need assistance in purchasing the upgrade memory GTG can assist with suggestions also.
