    I recommend you add another 256 of memory to bring it up to 512 mb. 256 mb is the bare minimum for running XP. JMHO

    Virtual memory is part of the free space on ur HDD, check if ur drive is running out and also check disk fragmentation.If needed run disk cleanup free up some space and defrag.

    You should run the disk cleanup and defrag regularly, without waiting for the drive to go full. Here are some links u can use on freeing up space and also HDD maintenace
