Windows XP SP2 , 256RAM, P42.0G CPU, the system has been reporting virtual memory is not enough when running Excel(OFFICE 2002) to edit file.

After checking, System C have enough disk space that at least is 12GB. The virtual memory is also configed to have virtual memory more than as twice as physical memory. All local disks has been scaned and not find any suspicious virus or other files. The machine works well running 2D softwares or other applications. Why appear this issue.

Any hint or solution is appreciated. Thanks!!!!!!!

System managed is a good option basically because the system will adjust it, virtual memory relies on using the hard drive to create virtual memory, so a static setting can run in to problems if the drive is used up by added data and programmes

256MB is at the low end for XP with Office, you would eliminate the problem by adding Ram Memory
