The pagefile is automatically set to your RAM amount by default. 3GB is a normal amount. If you have a lot of RAM you can set the amount lower.

 

You can get rid of the hiberfil.sys file by disabling Fast Startup and unchecking the Hibernate box. Then do a full shutdown by searching for Run and in the run box type

shutdown /s /t 0

Clean out all your Temp files with CCleaner.

8GB of RAM is plenty. Try making your pagefile about 1.5GB for both min and max as outlined in the guide.
