Windows 7: Can the page file be read?

Very few discussions that compare to "page file/no page file" on the net. Been seeing it from before I even had a PC and knew what it was.

That and "favorite defrag" or "does defrag really do anything?" arguments I just pass on. Life is too short to go round the same circle for hours.

@Bill, I have used the thumbs viewer links and links from them to erase the thumbs.db and found a way through Group Policy to set the system so it won't even create a thumbnail cache. system performance doesn't seem to be affected even though I have an OS and separate data drives.

@Miles, there's also the best AV threads too...

Yeah, it's like those apps have some bizarre mystique. On rare occasion someone at a download site will send me a message "such and such a scanner showed your program xyz has a virus." At which point I'll reply "I assure you I didn't point any malware in any of my programs. Please try another scanner." Then they will email back "Ok. Tried 3 other scanners and they all showed it clean."

It gets silly at some point.

Some software can do stuff some scanners don't like. I have a Hirens boot CD software which Norton and Malware Bytes both said have some Trojans or something. It's technically true I guess because Hirens has some programs includes which can modify system files.

When I compile scripts I turn compression off. One less chance for a false positive. My programs are small. Plus the download is zipped. A couple MB on disk instead of 700KB is not enough savings to bother with. Plus compression can make programs act weird. One less thing to worry about.
