    I am currently running on an Intel PIII 1 ghz with 512MB ram. I would like to know which would be better: to enable the paging file or use no paging file. And also if I use the paging file, should I clear paging file on shutdown?

    Some apps wont run without a paging file. Photo shop is one that comes to mind. I set my page file minium and maximium to the same value to keep it from getting too fragmented. I also have it set to clear page file on shutdown.

    just set your page file to something like min page file 512mb and max 512mb that should be sufficient :)
