1).LeeJend said:"What do you expect to gain from deleting the pagefile?".
a non issue for every user...you would also need to eliminate the rest of the files on your hardrive if you think there is a privacy issue with what's inside the pagefilePrivacy (whatever you did last is in your pagefile even if you norton erase the actual files)
I have noticed no change in start speed with or without a pagefile.2). A little faster startup and shutdown. Your pagefile is checked at start and shutdown and if you request it be wiped at shutdown for security then it has to be erased.
what you mean is the more memory you have, the more memory the os uses (it doesn't "waste" memory when it's usung memory)...it's designed this way becasue it's faster this way...ram sitting around doing nothing is ram that sits around and does nothing...Should you keep it. Yes. Because you don't want to have to shutdown or loose what you are working on because your RAM got filed. Windows and apps love to waste your RAM. The more you have the more it wastes. It's designed that way.
ya, that's the best choice for every userElectronic Punk said:Bah, so really I may as well stay with a rediculous 1.5 gig page file managed by windows?
