If you feel your Virtualized Parrot Security is slow, you should increase this Base Memory allocation.

You get the idea, just multiply 1024 with the amount of Memory/RAM you want and put the value in here.

### Step 3.d: Select number of Processors and enable PAE/NX ###
### Step 3.4 - Select number of Processors and enable PAE/NX ###
I’ve changed Processor to 2 (I got 8 CPU’s in my machine, this screen will show how many you have). Try sticking with EVEN numbers here.
Sets the number of virtual CPU cores the guest OSes can see.
2 virtual cores can go well, obviously with 4, 6, and so on, it will go better.
You should not configure virtual machines to use more CPU cores than are available physically. This includes real cores, with no hyperthreads. See [processor tab](https://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch03.html#settings-processor) on VirtualBox website.
Check the box for **Enable PAE/NX**.
