Low Memory Warning

So How do I fix the Low Memory problem without having to pay for some Kit? It tells me to shut down Explorer.


Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community.

Sorry for the inconvenience caused to you. I’ll certainly help you with this.

Low memory problems occur when your computer runs out of RAM and becomes low on virtual memory. This can happen when you run more programs than the RAM installed on the computer is designed to support. Low memory problems can also occur when a program doesn't free up memory that it no longer needs. This problem is called memory overuse or a memory leak.

Let’s run a System maintenance troubleshooting and check. It checks issues that might slow down your computer's performance, such as how many users are currently logged on to the computer and whether multiple programs are running at the same time

  1. Press Windows Key + X.
  2. Click on Control Panel.
  3. Select Troubleshooting.
  4. On the left pane, click on View All.
  5. Click on System Maintenance to run the troubleshooter.

I would also suggest you to free up the drive space on your computer to improve the performance of your computer.
