Default Re: PAGE FILE? 8GB

Read this if your interested but taking the page file off causes no issues. The problem with the page file being disabled is clearly just do to lack of memory and then the program has no way to write to disk. Therefore it crashed but there aren't many programs that require any where near 8GB.

To this day for 3 months I've been running 8GB with no page file and I've yet to encounter a single error. Games run fine, programs run fine, programs run fine while gaming. My system is more responsive because there is no page file being used. You have to remember Vista handles memory in completely different way than XP did. My recommendation is if the OP is going to 8GB then he should give using no page file a try. He'll probably enjoy the results and the worse that happens an application crashes and you turn it back on.
