Your post is in the HJT section of the forum, you should not make a post about the same item in a forum like this.

If you go back to your original post and follow the advice posted there, you will understand.

Excessive Page file usage can come from not having enough memory as well as low disk space.

How much RAM are you running and how much free space do you have on your disk? (the one that holds the page file, usually C:)

Whoa, you could use some of both! :thumbsup:

I would definitely bump that RAM up to 512MB or 1GB if you can afford it. www.crucial.com will scan your computer and tell you what type of RAM you need. (it requires you install an ActiveX component but they can be trusted)

The Hard Drive is also in need of some growth. If you can afford it, you could "Ghost" over the image from the old drive to a new drive. Some drive manufacturers supply software in order to do this, making it possible for almost anyone to do it.

You need to do something soon because if you run out of disk space, programs and data can become corrupted and then it would be useless.

Good luck.
