Hope this is the correct forum. I'm running XP Pro with 1.5 GiG ram. I have my page file set at 3000. With 1.5 of ram I would expect the page file to rarely be tapped, especially for just word docs and e-mail however using the task manager performance feature, I see that I am using a constant 315MB of Page File. Just a straight line across, even when the CPU graph is moving.
Is this the way it is supposed to work, perhaps processes that run only in virtual memory. I have no applications running other than IE and I still have between 285 and 315MB of consumption.
