      The only way you can do this is to put more ram in.

      There is another way, but since you do not know how to do increase the virtual ram, i will not post it here.

      Please post back if you have any more problems or questions.

      All I can say is to Increase what is called under Windows the [b]Swap File[/b] or [b]Page File[/b] Minimum Size.

      That will increase your Virtual RAM but depending on how much you have loaded it may have no effect on the way that the applications run.

      As a Starting point the Page File should be at least 1.5 times the Actual Ram to 2 Times the Actual RAM but if you have a small amount of RAM installed you can make the Minimum Size 300% the Amount of Installed RAM for the Lower End and 500% of installed RAM at the higher end.

      So if you have 1 GIG of RAM installed in the computer you can make the Minimum Size 3 GIG and the Upper Size 5 GIG. If you have 256 MEG of RAM installed you could start off with a Minimum Size of 1 GIG and a Upper Size of 2 GIG and depending on how fast your HDD can transfer Data it may help to improve things.
