holding down the Windows logo key and pressing the Pause/Break key. Now select the Advanced tab and choose the Settings button under Performance. Choose Advanced button again and under Virtual Memory select change. Select the radio button, "System Managed Size." If you still experience performance problems, install more RAM.

If your machine gives that message after it's been on and running for a while, you may have a memory leak from some program. If it comes on early, you may have unneeded running processes at startup. You can check these using Ctrl-Alt-Del to bring up task manager. Check it early after start and after you've been using it a while to see what's running and how much memory processes are using. Memory leaks are caused by programs that fail to release unneeded RAM and begin to gobble it up unnecessarily.
