Hi all- I'd appreciate some insight/thoughts on my system's pagefile usage. Quick background: I just underwent a good thorough trojan & nasties cleaning and ended up removing Norton AV from my system. I picked up ZoneAlarm, AVG, and ewido. Since these changes, my online games (COD2 and BF2) seem to be a tiny bit choppy. Not too bad, I still have high fps, but it doesn't feel normal. I've been researching pagefile info since I know that BF2 is a ram hog and I only have 1gb of ram. Here's my question: In the task manager right now, with just Firefox open, my pagefile is at 427mb used, while I still have over half my physical memory available. Shouldn't the system be using the ram first? It looks like the pagefile usage is matching the ram usage. But even at idle, there is still pagefile usage showing. I'm wondering if this hd write/reading is possibly causing some of the visual chatter in my games? Any info is greatly appreciated!
