    i am working on a friends pc spec:

    intel pIII 600
    256mb PC133 SDRAM
    16gb Hard drive (6gb free)


    Everytime i shutdown i get the mesage windows virtual memory low click ok to change the paging size.

    Windows is managing its own virtual memory, whats trhe maximum i can manually set it to to stop recieving this message?

    I don't ever get this message on my pc.

    Thanx in advance

    paging size should be set to the size of your 'puter's ram; i.e., if you have 512mb of ram, set paging size to 512.

    There is a also a bug in WinXP causing the virtual memory low message to appear on shutdown for some people no matter the size of the paging file..so far I don't know of a fix.
