    control panel->system
    advanced tab->performance
    advanced tab has VM settings
    set pagefile to 2 X your installed RAM

    Well if you have plenty of hard drive space, custom change the page file to 2048MB or even 4gb :D
    But it's likely that 1GB will be perfectly fine.
    Make sure that the min and max size are the same.

    You might run into probs if you set the pagfefile at 4g. I think twice ram is a good formula as long as it doesn't hit 4g.

    The best way to optimise the pagefile is to have more than enough ram.
