    I am running XP Pro. Almost everytime I close my computer I get a Low on Virtual Memory Message. I have tried setting it to System Managed Size, but it made no difference. Microsoft appear to recomment setting the Max to 1.5 times RAM. I have now set to 382 Min and 384 Max. Anyone know what the exact settings should be?

    ...

    set your Virtual Memory amount to 1.5x the amount of RAM you have, make the initial size the same as the maximum size to prevent fragmentation of the page file.

    Do not thank ME if this works, credit goes to dealer and allan.
