I turned the pagefile off on my laptop. It has 8 gig or ram and an SSD. I haven't had any programs complain about no pagefile or seen any nag screens about it being set too small.

Check It Out

If you are really concerned why not look into it. There several ways to check, some third party. But one I know that is available to you is Task Manager on the performance tab. Check your number on Physical Memeory (MB)

You worry too much.

Uh...I was being a wee bit sarcastic.

W7 still has that holdover called the pagefile, what do you need that for when 4GiB now costs less than 1GiB of a few years ago?

"This makes you think what the use of the pagefile is anyway these days. It is an "obsolete" technology from the Win 3.1 era but we have to live with it. Even if you are using 64 bit versions of the Windows OS."

Pagefile was pretty critical for XP. Man did it use a lot the pagefile when under 512 mb of RAM . And even beyond that it did use it too damn much for my tastes (heck I had 2 Gigs, stop using it you %&&$&$)
And XP is supposed to be able to run in 64 MB of RAM (128 recommended), mind me.

Which is why when you install Windows 7 even relatively older hardware runs better as long as it has more than 1 GB of RAM. Better Ram management. Significantly better.

I'm only part way through the new build as time allows, have it [mobo] populated with 4GiB DDR3 and for the MDP-130 gotta run 32-bit,as explained earlier.

Its just that, if page file is still there, it wouldn't have hurt them to have kept the colour schemes from before, though I'm trying to re-find the post from the user that already integrated them from his XP into 7
or just use IownAmoneyPit's method of getting the same effect.

I would wish it was Steve Balolmer was the one that was leaving. He has been a disaster in running Microsoft

As Microsoft Restructuring Nears, Top Execs Fret Over Their Fate



...That has meant that most senior execs have largely been left out of the decision-making process related to Ballmer’s goal of solidifying Microsoft into the “devices and services company,” that he wrote about in his annual shareholder letter last October.
The impending changes — and the lack of information about them — has made for some level of discomfort inside Microsoft, where many high-ranking managers have been at the company for a very long time.
“It feels like it is going to be titanic — that Steve is doing this change for his legacy,” said one person close to the situation. “And it’s the first time in a long time that it feels like that there will be some major shifts, including some departures.”

Rejected Windows 8 but looking forward to the Windows 8.1 preview in couple days, if it turns out good which I think it will, I will be migrating to Windows 8.1 for the better security.

Would You Reject A Pre-Built PC Because Of Windows 8
I found an excellent pre-built PC deal. The system uses quality parts and is cheaper than the cost of the separate parts + shipping by $125.00. Plus, I would have to spend time building the PC. The only problem are is it ships with Windows 8 only. Is Windows 8 a deal killer ?
