pagefile is 4GB, just started windows

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I just started windows and I noticed that task manager was indicating that I was using 6GB of my 8GB of RAM.

on the bottomn of the performance tab it says that I have pagefiled 4590MB! I looked at what could be using this and I found no programs that indicated such high memory usage.

I have my pagefile settings set at minimum 512MB, maximum 1024MB, so it should not be near 4590?

Any help is highly appreciated

This sounds like Superfetch or Prefetch pre-loading things. If you want you can disable this since it looks like you're running your OS on an SSD setup and you can run just fine with SuperFetch turned off.

Run the registry editor and go to:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management\PrefetchParameters

You should see "Enable SuperFetch" and "Enable Prefetch". Just set both values to "0" and restart your machine and see if that helps. smile.gif

You are probably reading the values incorrectly.... post a screenshot?


Besides, unused RAM is wasted RAM.

It was caused by Samsung Link , even though it only displayed as using ~300MB, when I had turned off most programs from starting with windows, and I started this, the Ram usage shot up 4.5GB.

Thanks though smile.gif
