does any one know how to fix this error
everytime i log on to my pc (running xp pro)
i get the error message that windows has created a temporary page file as there was a problem with configuring your page file at logon
then it asks me to restart windows to correct this
it dosent matter wether i use a custom size page file or a windows managed page file
every time i reboot for the changes to take place my pc just stays at the log on screen until i ctrl+alt+del
then i get the same error message all over again
my page file is stuck at zero

hope fully some one will have a cure for the problem:(

I would set xp to use no page file
Reboot
Delete the pagefile.sys
Reboot
Set the xp page file to whatever u want
Reboot
.Im at work so I cant test this
Hopefully it would let you delete the pagefile.sys if xp is not
Using it...

page file

well i tried your idea but no luck
so it looks like i have to keep trying
i dont really fancy the idea of running xp through again to find that it hasent solved the problem
isnt there a reg edit i can use to put the page file value straight in to the registry:mad:

If chkdsk found that many errors, you have more problems then just your page file being corrupt. This could be just the first symptom of something worse... back up all your stuff while you're still able to and do a clean installation is your best bet.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
