turn your pagefile up a little

Do the following :

Quote:
THE PAGING FILE: There are two types of memory which helps XP fuction correctly.One is physical memory ( RAM ) and the other is Virtual Memory, referred to as the paging file. This is an area of your hard disk used as a buffer when RAM is low on resources. If you have another harddisk installed in your p.c you can move the paging file there and reduce the stress of two activities on your main harddisk.

Step 1: Reducing the work on your main harddisk can speed up application response times ( This will only benefit you if you have another harddisk ). Open ''System properties'' in the ''Control panel'' and select ''advanced''.

Step 2: Under ''Performance'' click on ''Settings'' then select ''Advanced''. Go to ''Virtual Memory'' and click on ''Change'' to see your current settings. At the moment ''C:'' will be selected so click to highlight your other drive instead.

Step 3: Having selected a different drive you can choose the ''custom size'' option and set an ''Initial Size'' and ''Maximum size'' for the paging file. Or opt for the ''System managed'' size and XP will decide whats best for you.
I set min and max to 2048
