Hey guys, I was working on Mom's computer (Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit) earlier and noticed that at every restart she gets this Windows error page that states:
"Windows created a temporary paging file on your computer because 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."
Now, I have tried a few steps in fixing this, however, I have not been able to so successfully.
Things I have done already:
Selected "show hidden files and folders"
Unselected "Hide protected operating system files"
Unselected "Automatically manage paging file size" from Virtual memory options.
Oddly though, is that when I go into C: Drive I do not see pagefile.sys, nor does a search find it. However, I DO find one in the spare D: Drive that is installed. I have tried following the steps in THIS
guide, but as I've just explained, there is no pagefile.sys file to be found on C: once I have gotten to Step 6.
I have selected "Custom size" within the Virtual Memory window and set it to 0Mb as per the guide's directions. And the directions states that after restarting, I should be able to locate the pagefile.sys file from within C: and delete it, well, when I do this on my machine, there is no pagefile.sys file found. WHen I reenable it, it shows up in the D: drive instead of Drive C:. Even though in the Virtual memory window, Drive D: is still set to "None" for its Pagefile.
What I want to do essentially, is get the C; Drive's pagefile.sys file back; stop the pagefile.sys from being created on the D: Drive, and stop this annoying warning window every time the desktop restarts.
Can anybody help me figure this out? Any help is appreciated.
