Hi everyone

 

A time ago, my computer gived me an warning saiyng that my memory was low. I have 6gb, so i searched in the internet how to fix this, and i found that i needed to change my virtual memory. But every time i change it to anything and restart my computer, the option of "no paging file" is selected again. I found a thread that said this problem was related to an service called afs.sys, but i do not have this service.

https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/windows/en-US/c5cfe9d0-e3d8-4625-85b1-3efdf04cd1a0/paging-file-not-createable?forum=w7itproperf

 

Anyone knows what to do?

 

EDIT: I forgot to say that when i try to change and reset, when the desktop appears, appears too an confirmation for SystemPropertiesPerformance.exe run as adm

Please download MiniToolBox  , save it to your desktop and run it.
 
Checkmark the following checkboxes:
  List last 10 Event Viewer log
  List Installed Programs
  List Users, Partitions and Memory size.
 
Click Go and paste the content into your next post.
 
Also...please Publish a Snapshot using Speccy taking care to post the link of the snapshot in your next post.

   Go to Piriform's website, and download the free version on the left.  Click Download from Piriform.com (the FileHippo link requires an extra click). Or if you want to use a portable version of Speccy (which doesn't require installation), click the builds page link and download the portable version. You will now be asked where you want to save the file. The best place to put it is the Desktop, as it will be easy to find later.

    After the file finishes downloading, you are ready to run Speccy. If you downloaded the installer, simply double-click on it and follow the prompts until installation is complete. If you downloaded the portable version, you will need to unzip it before use. Right-click the ZIP file and click Extract all. Click Next. Open up the extracted folder and double-click on Speccy.
 
     Once inside Speccy, it will look similar to this (with your computer's specifications, of course): p22004369.gif

     Now, at the top, click File > Publish Snapshot. You will see the following prompt:

p22004371.gif

     Click Yes > then Copy to Clipboard

p22004372.gif

Now, once you are back in the forum topic you are posting in, click the p22004370.gif button. Right-click in the empty space of the Reply box and click Paste. Then, click Add Reply below the Reply box.
