Check that your hard drive isn't nearly full.
Then, use this technique to "reset" your pagefile:
Go to Start...Run...and type in "sysdm.cpl" (without the quotes) and press Enter. Go > Advanced tab > Performance Settings Button > Advanced tab > Virtual Memory Change button.
In this window, note down the current settings for your pagefile (so you can restore them later on).
Then click on the "No paging file" radio button, and then on the "Set" button. Be sure, if you have multiple hard drives, that you ensure that the paging file is set to 0 on all of them. Click OK to exit the dialogs.
Reboot (this will remove the pagefile from your system)
Then go back in following the directions above and re-enter the settings that you wrote down. Follow the steps all the way through (and including) the reboot.
Once you've rebooted this second time, go back in and check to make sure that the settings are as they're supposed to be.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
