Removing the Page file and the Hybernate file ?

The Pagefile and the Hybernate file has been growing to 10 GB or more.
Can I Boot using a BootCD and just erase them ?
Will the PC work thereafter ?

You don`t erase them, you just turn them off.

I haven`t used a page file in over 2 years. But I have 16 GB of memory, how much do you have ?

Please fill out your specs 100%

If you don`t use hibernation, you just turn it off.

Ok so I set .rar files to automatically be associated with 7zip, but now when I download a rar file, firefox is automatically set to 'open with 7zip' instead of 'save to disk'.
