Increasing Virtual MEmory(To fasten up your 3d Applications).

1>>Right Click the My Computer icon.

2>>Click Properties.

3>>You'll see a few tabs on the top.Click "Advanced".

4>>Now, you have three labels each with a settings button below it. Click "Settings" under the Performance option.

5>>Now, you'll see "Virtual Memory" at the bottom of the page.Here is the "Change" option.Click it.

6>>You'll see "Paging File Size fo selected drive".Under it are two more options "INITIAL SIZE", "MAXIMUM SIZE".

7>>IMPORTANT: If you have 512 MB Ram, Then multiply it by 1.5.Whatever PHYSICAL MEMORY you have, multiply it by 1.5.

8>>Now, The result you get after the calculation(For 512 MB, Allocate 768 MB in both the spaces.
