If you give your pagefile a fixed size it saves the operating
system from needing to resize the page file.

1. Right click on My Computer and select Properties
2. Select the Advanced tab
3. Under Performance choose the Settings button
4. Select the Advanced tab again and under Virtual Memory select
5. Highlight the drive containing your page file and make the
initial Size of the file the same as the Maximum Size of the file.
Windows XP sizes the page file to about 1.5X the amount of actual
physical memory by default. While this is good for systems with
smaller amounts of memory (under 512MB) it is unlikely that a
typical XP desktop system will ever need 1.5 X 512MB or more of
virtual memory. If you have less than 512MB of memory, leave the
page file at its default size. If you have 512MB or more, change
the ratio to 1:1 page file size to physical memory size.
