Hi there, Guarang! This is actually not an error message, but rather an informational message. And given that it's not an error, it won't be "fixed". You can find information on exactly why this option was introduced into the Java workspaces on this thread where this same question was answered by a Treehouse staff member.

Essentially, it's an informational message about keeping the JVM from eating up too many resources and killing user processes as I understand it.

Hope this helps! :sparkles:
