Hello friends...I hope you liked my post on locking a folder without any software...Now I will show you guys how to increase the Virtual Memory and make your system faster...Hope you will enjoy...

For computer users that multi-task or work with high performance applications, you should know about virtual memory and how to get the most from it. Virtual memory can be best described as simulated RAM. If your computer has 1 GB of RAM and you use up all of this memory with the OS and several applications, your computer is forced to compensate by switching from physical RAM to virtual memory. Without virtual memory, once your computer ran out of physical RAM, no other programs or higher performance could be possible.With virtual memory, the computer copies data from the RAM and writes it to the hard drive- essentially freeing up RAM and allowing you to open additional applications or allow a high performance application to run uninhibited.

However, the downside of virtual memory is that since virtual memory is copied to your hard drive and your hard drive is much slower than physical RAM, the user will notice a significant decrease in performance. If you would like to increase performance, there are a few things you can do. Here is a trick to increase virtual memory for both Windows XP and Vista.

1. To invoke the system properties dialog, click the Start button, right-click "My Computer" and select "Properties".This will open up your general system information dialog.

2. Click "Advanced" tab, then under "Performance", click "Settings".

3. "Performance Options" dialog box will appear...Click on "Advanced" tab...Then under "Virtual memory", click "Change".

4. Under "Drive [Volume Label]", click the drive that contains the paging file that you want to change.Under Paging file size for selected drive, check "Custom size" box. You can enter the amount of memory you would like to reserve for Virtual memory by entering the initial and maximum size.Click "Set".

Note: You should choose the same amount for the initial size and maximum size.This will Stop your CPU from constantly changing the paging file.

You are done...Your system is faster now...Have fun :-)

Happy Hacking...Enjoy...
