I was wondering if you really neeed your disk paging file. when I go to turn it off Windows XP gives me a message about debugging and how if i have less than 200mb of paging file if a STOP error occurs it cant write a debug report. This doesn't bother me as I don't tend to read the debug report. I have a gig of memory and always seem to have loads free but windows is using paging file anyway. I don't reckon it would be dangerous to have no paging file but is it likely to serverely hamper my performance? I'm tired of my harddrive grinding away on the pagefile when theres enough physical memory left for it to use. Has anyone actually tried turning their virtual memory off?
