    new pagefile.sys


    Suddenly, I have a 36gb pagefile.sys on my secondary drive.
    I remove it by setting no page file at SystemPropertiesPerformance.exe

    If I set paging back to automatic, it appears again, 36gb, after a restart.

    But is this new pagefile.sys it because of a recent windows update ?

    Is it ok if I don't use a pagefile ?

    :)

  3. Clear Pagefile on Shutdown


    I've been looking into clearing the pagefile, and I found the following steps at a somewhat dated webpage:
    1. In the registry editor, navigate to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management
    2. Set ClearPageFileAtShutdown to the REG_DWORD value of 1.
    3. Restart Windows.
    I'm just wondering whether those steps are still valid, and, if so, does clearing the pagefile work as advertised?

    I have a machine the started giving me an out of memory.

    The PageFile was stuck at 512MB. VIrtual memory was set for System Managed. Recommended was around 1900MB. Machine has 8GB of RAM. If I set a min/max it would set at the min only. I finally set min/max 3-6GB. Runs better but it seems the Sys managed
    PageFile is not working correctly. haven't run into this issue before and I can't find anything for it.
