I have to brush the rust off on this one but if memory serves correctly virtual memory is where your computer uses space on your hard drive to act as memory. I believe it's also called a page file. You should be able to increase your swap file or page file and fix the problem or just buy more physical memory for your system. The link below will give you a better description than what I remember :D

"Clean" your memory instead of having to buy more or increase windows page file for free

The link above is to a program I use on many of my computers to free up wasted memory on windows comps.

Works very well

Hi lyn- If you still have problems afterwards, post back here and let us know what OS your using. Also does this occur only when your online..? If your running XP and having this problem while your online, we can fix you up .. (also next time you get that pop up if you'll write it down or copy and paste it exactly... word for word... we can figure it out for u)
