I am running Windows 7 and I have Windows 2000 in my Virtual Memory. Something is consuming my CPU usage up to 25% in my virtual memory which is running Windows 2000. It says ms_link.exe. What does it mean? Does this have to do something with my Windows 2000 operating system in my virtual memory? I need some help please.

Hello Sherwin.

I think MS_link is a linker from Microsoft. So basically it is a system file which if you will delete will cause problem with your computer. Try not to remove it. Then if its consuming too much space on your virtual memory, reinstall Windows 2000. If the file is still there with the same space, then it is part of the Windows 2000 that should not be remove.

Dear Sherwin Cook,

I have researched with the file ms_link.exe This is not a part of any software. This is unpredictable and so called a spyware or virus.You should reinstall windows from a original disk. Then you will not see any file which reduce virtual memory.You should know about  Windows 2000 virtual memory.This requires 4GB of RAM.This virtual memory is huge as the windows capacity.There can be many processes run by user.Each process has its own 2GB of private virtual address space.When the memory being used by all existing processes exceeds the available RaAM,the system moves pages of one or more virtual address spaces to the computer's hard disk.

 

Thanks
