I have heard if you have 512MB RAM and over - disable the swap file I did do it and yes it works If you do not feel comfortable with going without a swap file, then set it to a minimum of 50 MB. To do this, Right-click on the My Computer Icon on your desktop, then select Properties. Click Advanced, then Settings, Then Advanced. In the section describing virtual memory, click the CHANGE button, then select NO PAGING FILE if you want no swap file.. or CUSTOM SIZE if you want to start at 50 MB. This will not only improve system performance, but you will be amazed as to how fast your system will run.
