All you need to know I think. Pagefile.

Do not set manual minimum and maximum Just leave Windows to manage the Pagefile itself.

Thanks for the http Chronus! & bremner !

I adjusted the page file and realised after it was incorrect and couldn't remember what it was originally. The machine which is my daughters keeps giving the Virtual Memory Low in the bottom right thats why after intense virus & Malware checks didn't find anything I change the Virtual Memory

I am printing of as I type the http now chronus

Receiving the VM low message possibly indicates that the hard drive on which the pagefile sits is very full.

It has always been recommended that for good performance a drive should not use more than 90% of its capacity.
