Re: yellow shield with exclamation mark

Virtual memory is the space your PC uses when it's short of RAM (Random Access Memory), which is the memory used when running programs.

Best solution for "virtual memory minimum is too low" message is you can increase the memory by adding more RAM. or you can increase the virtual memory from setting as some program require more memory space

this is the Windows install shield...it actually works to prevent you from downloading bad things! If you click it, it will give you a list of the things it wants to install...in most cases, it is a Windows security update though I've also seen it pop up for other programs,I have installed from the Internet.
