One way to try and alleviate the problem is by setting the virtual memory to a constant higher value than the current setting. Virtual memory is a portion of your hard drive used by the computer when the RAM is not enough to cater to all the programs that you’re running simultaneously. To change Virtual Memory Size:
Go to Control Panel > System and Security > System.
Click Advanced > under Performance click Settings.
Click Advanced > under Virtual Memory click Change
Under Drive [Volume Label], click the drive that contains the page file (virtual memory) you’d like to change.
Under Paging file size for selected drive, click Custom size, type a new paging file size in megabytes (MB) then click Set.
Click Ok. Restart.
It is recommended that you keep the minimum and maximum size the same. Set the size to about twice your currently installed RAM.
The other option would be to install additional memory (RAM) in your system. Or, you can just close any programs that you don’t really need running to free up memory.
