Running out of memory on Windows Vista

I have an Intel Pentium 4 2.93 GHz, 1 GB DDR2 RAM, 80 GB 7200 RPM HDD and an Intel 945 motherboard. I am using Vista Ultimate with SP1 installed and it is regularly updated. Whenever I launch two or more applications I get low memory error. I have even turned off Aero. But it has not even helped. Please tell how to reduce Vista's memory usage.

DIGIT ANSWERS: The problem of memory shortage could be to do with the pagefile especially because you are running Vista on 1 GB of memory which is the bare minimum. Check the page file settings for your system by starting up the System Properties: Click on the Advanced tab and click on Settings under Performance. Again, click on Advanced and click the Change button under the Virtual memory section. Here, set a size for the page file if there isn’t one set already.
