    I have been disabling the page file (virtual memory) since 4 years when I got 8 GB RAM and never had a problem with any program

    Now I have 32 GB so it should be even better

    I am on Windows 8.1 and never had a problem before until I just tried to play a song with WMP and got a low memory error although even after I have opened all the programs I used and been running since 5 hours since startup, I have 16 GB free

    so what gives? do you think it's because of me disabling the page file?

    If yes, do you think I should set the page file to a fixed 1024 min / max or leave it as Windows suggests which is 5 GB on my system?

    Surely the simple answer would be to try windows suggested size.
