    hi usage is not a problem per se.

    be sure your VM pagefile is 2x your installed RAM.

    first defrag the HD, set the VM size, and then reboot.

    What does pagefile have to do with this?

    if set too small, you've spend a lot of time with needless paging.
    if set automatic expand, cpu is burned in moving files to expand the pagefile.

    set it to fixed and set it right; cpu and i/o will be saved :)
