bloker...realy glad that helped, now, I'd love to know what the original settings were, and what you wound up setting it too.

I believe your situation exemplifies why the page file should never be set static...you couldn't have run out of memory, if expansion was enabled...

even if you wound up increasing the page file, make sure that expansion is enabled.

also, since it's obvious you did increase the page file sixe, use the little proggy I posted on the free programs thread to defrag the page file.

once it's defragged, it'll remain defragged, and you won't ever have to do it again.

please post your original settings, and what you wound up with ...tanx

dealer hi
the initial size size was 1536mb with the maximum size set at 3072mb both of which was set by windows based on my ram.

i have now actually reduced initial size to 512mb and kept maximium at 3072mb this allows windows to adjust if so required.

what is the defrag prog about ?

You have to be careful with programs like that - the calcuations need are memory hogs (as you problay know ;) ). And the chew up the processer time.

well holy fujizty...I'm amzed lowering the page file minimum helped...I'm thinking if you reset it back to the default, the program will run fine...possbly some glich in your page file, but I can't figure this one out

as far as the defrag program...xp cannot defrag the page file, as it's in use during the defrag...this program defrags the page file on boot...
