Maximize Windows XP Virtual Memory

Virtual Memory:-Virtual Memory is a feature of an operating system that enables a process to use a memory (RAM) address space that is independent of other processes running in the same system, and use a space that is larger than the actual amount of RAM present, temporarily relegating some contents from RAM to a disk, with little or no overhead.
You can  use a USB flash drive to store your virtual memory.
