My PC is Running Out of Memory. My Computer Says that the Virtual Memory is Low, Low Disk Space, Hard Drive Error, RAM Memory Usage is High, How to Get More Free Space?
Recently, when i was working on my PC..I got a message stating that the virtual memory is quite low, Low Disk Space, Hard Drive Error, RAM Memory Usage is High…indeed my PC is running so slow like a snail….takes almost 15 to 20 minutes at the start up …. and to open other applications and programs
I tried defragmenting the disk, but this didn’t help at all..I hardly had any space consuming files…a week ago i had more than 130 GB free space ..and now showing just few MBs free space left??? I just don’t know how did that happen …
I tried to run my Norton Antivirus..but couldn’t run it…
So how can i get free space on my computer that states my virtual memory is low, Low Disk Space, Hard Drive Error, RAM Memory Usage is High?? Do I need to add RAM? I had all of these questions…I approached a good friend of mine who’s a computer nerd.
He checked my PC and said that it could be a virus. I got the error messages something similar to these,
