"windows created a temporary pagefile" everytime on startup


New Member
Hi, i get msg everytime i start my computer that says

"Windows created a temporary paging file on your computerbecause of a problem that occurred with your paging file configuration when you started your computer. The total paging file size for all disk drives may be somewhat larger than the size you specified".

I believe this happened after my computer lost power a few times. I've tried disabling and renabling the pagefile but it wont go away.

I believe your pagefile is set at too small a value.
Go to Control panel (icon view) - system. Over on the left select advanced system settings.
Select the Advanced tab and Peformance. Now the Advanced tab again. Click change and select system managed size.
Ok out of the windows and reboot.
