Have tried numerous combinations of settings in the memory management section [System]>Advanced>Performance>Advanced>Virtual Memory but can't seem to get xp to create a pagefile.sys. Have also edited the registry and set all of the control sets to the same value, deleted all reference to temp pagefile, but still when I reboot no pagefile gets created (confirmed by looking in c:\ (with view option to see all system files). Anyone have an idea as to how to force xp to create pagefile.sys ?
Since you have edited the registry this leaves a bit to wonder. If the last post did not help this one might, you will have to have your Windows Install disk for this and if you do not have it please do not try this fix.
First I suggest backing up your important data to another media like CD-r's or DVD. then follow the instructions in the next article and print the article for reference.
