Low on virtualy memory usually means do many things are running at once using up all of the computers memory. So you can't do anything. Close out some of the programs that are running, and see how it works. Wouldn't hurt to do a virus scan,as their may be some spywares and such running without you knowing. Causing the computer to lose virtual memory.
