In the Local Security Setting – Lock pages in memory dialog box, click Add User or Group.

Reboot for change to take effect.
You may also need to launch the miner as administrator.
Allowing large pages on Linux
Firstly stop the miner (if it's running), run the following commands to enable large pages and then start the miner as root:
sudo sysctl -w vm.nr_hugepages=1168
sudo ./xmrig
You may have to increase 1168 depending on how many NUMA nodes your CPU(s) have.
Allowing large pages on macOS
Huge pages are not supported on macOS.
Balance Not Increasing
Most pools are <abbr title="Pay Per Last N Shares">PPLNS</abbr> pools,
which means that you only get paid when a miner on the pool finds a
block. If the pool you are mining on is small, this can take a few
days to weeks.
Additionally, any blocks found must mature before they can be paid out. This takes 60 blocks (approx. 2 hours).
Getting Help
An active Monero mining community on Reddit is [/r/MoneroSupport](https://www.reddit.com/r/MoneroSupport/). You can also join [#monero-pools on Libera](https://web.libera.chat/?channel=#monero-pools) or Matrix (#monero-pools:monero.social).
Going Futher
Consider using a subaddress just for mining, to prevent your address being linked to different services.
[Consider using Tor to connect to the pool](https://xmrig.com/docs/miner/tor) (or to a hidden service pool like HashVault, RespectXMR and MoneroOcean). This hides mining activity from your ISP, and prevents the pool from knowing who you are.
