    All I can think of is make sure to click on the SET button as otherwise the amount you set (if you just click on OK) will not take affect.

    I had a problem of this sort a while back, i was told to post a highjack this log and people here fixed it.
    I think i had it again as well, but changing the setting worked.

    If you have the pagefile on a secondary disk (first, don't tell Perris... ) I think the setting reverts to zero on the primary.

    However, I don't think that's your issue.... researching...

    Mastershakes brings up a decent point, how about a screenie of his configuration which would show the drive(s) it's configured to.

    Also, see if the change will stick if set in the registry. Start, Run, Regedit...

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management

    Double-click PagingFiles, the entry should appear as

    C:\pagefile.sys xxx xxx

    With the first value being location, second being minimum size and third being maximum size. Change the values accordingly, reboot and see what happens.
