Virtual memory needing more space

\015 I have windows xp, I have been getting the sign, "virtual memory too full" alot. Ive tried to clear out space on drive C ( i think that was the one) but im not sure what to take off to remedy this problem. Can someone tell me how or what to do to fix this? it says windows will make more space, but im not so sure thats happening, if so, its not making enough, im seeing this too frequent.

Answers :

Hello
yes all info you can share is good. do you have several partitions on the disk? in that case you can move the swap file to a other partition or hard drive. how big are you c: ? you have to little space at your harddrive as you said. you can change your virtual memory here right click my computer >properties>advanced tab-> settings on Performance> advanced and click change. change to a other partition or set the size smaller on C. But be careful! the size of the page file should be atleast equal to you amount of ram.
