Can you check, how much virtual memory do you have?

Hello, thanks for your answer I read 12288 MB, it is ok? Need more?

more options

I have only 2700 MB and doesn't have this problem.

Is it manual setup, or system-controlled?

more options

Didn't touch or change nothing, I openet the System Properties and 12288 MB is what I read, must be system-controlled isn't?

more options

I have 4 GB RAM.

You run out of page file space.

Do you let Windows handle the Page file automatically or have you set a fixed size for the Windows Page File ?

  • Control Panel -> System -> Advanced -> Performance -> Settings

If you use a fixed size for the page file then try the automatic setting and let Windows handle the page file automatically.

I have set automatic setting. I don't remember if I changed something.

I'm not an expert of Windows, but I'd lower it to 2-4 gigs. You could ask about it on some general computer forum.

What other applications do you run as it looks that with almost 17 GB for the page file in use and still have issues is alarming ?

Virtual memory use might be fragmented or there are leaks that prevent memory from getting released.

12,288 megabytes equates to 12.2 gigs. This is too much virtual memory, imo

17,160,843,264 = to 17.6 petabytes

Seems to me that the numbers you are giving us are not reconciling to the standards of normal computering, unless you are using IBM's Watson

Don't know, It is? What to do and how? Thanks a lot Mate.

The info above is provided by software. Now lets take a look at the hardware:

Step 1: Open your computer bios and tell us what the exact amount of ram memory is installed. While there, see what the computer shows as the size of the harddrives. And also see if the cmos time is accurate too.

Ouch! I will try to do it, don't know how but I will look at google!

so the software should be indicating up to 4,000 megabytes. but as you can see by their number, they are off the charts,

in regards to pagefile, the old rule of thumb use to be that its size should be 1.5 times to amount of ram, ie 6,000 megabytes.

but with windows 10, it seems that having at around 2.5 gigs is more proficient, especially for the "hibernation mode"

so the issue here is if your physical ram memory is damaged or there is a memory leak created by bad "or" mailicious software "or" somebody went around the o.s. and inflated the numbers via software but was incompatiable with the hardware "or" is the o.s. simply needs to be reinstalled?

the other observation is that you only have 83 gigs of free hard disk space on a 1 terabyte drive. imo, 83 gigs is not good for an active operating system. But it would be ok if the drive was merely used for storing files only or for backups.

now the question is: what to do next with this mess?

1) at this time disable "all" applications that are loading / starting with your windows. 2) uninstall all add-ons in firefox 3) go into pagefile and custom set it the size, both min and max, to 2300. 4) reboot windows 5) dont run anything applications yet 6) open the properties of the disk and do a "clean-up" 7) run a sfc /scannow 8) reboot and see how you renewed system behaves.

keep us apprised.
