    You would want to use step 12 in the tutorial. Go ahead and post a screenshot showing your page file settings to see what they are, and if there's anything that may need to be changed.

    ok , brink said to make it 'system managed' , it looks by that screen that you still have it to set to be manually changed , your system is recommending 16 meg as minimum , but you have only 8 meg as lowest start value.

    Which is why you keep getting that memory error dialog coming up.

    Select the circle 'System Managed Size' instead of 'Custom Size' and press 'OK'
