I tried fiddling with my paging file when I was trying to get an older program to run for my son. I actually turned it off and forgot to turn it back on. Lately, a lot of the programs I run have been minimizing themselves in the middle of running. Could this be the problem? I initially thought it was due to some new HP AIO software I installed for my new fax/copier/printer. does it make more sense to allow the computer to see how much paging file size it needs, or set it to a specific amount?
