OK so from reading the recent replies I assume I have made a mistake and am not even on the right OS for these forums? Sorry for my feebleness.

Turns out I'm using the awful Vista OS. No wonder I'm having problems with it.

That's fine.

You would still want to move your page file back to C:, and check to make sure that system protection is turned off for D:. The tutorials will be the same in Vista as well.

Thanks, well I checked the system protection and it is turned off, so everything is okay there.

I had a look at the link provided regarding moving the page file, got to a certain point and not sure what to do from here. I took a picture of where I get up to, so any idea where to go from here?

1. Uncheck Automatically manage paging file for all drives.
2. Secect C drive and check the System manages size radio button
3. Select D and check No paging file.

You will then be asked to reboot.

Seems like my computer is refusing to oblige here.

1) I've managed to change the Recovery drive from "System managed size" to "No paging file" so that correctly states "None" now.

However, it's refusing to change the C drive to "System managed". I select the C drive, click "System managed size", then 'Set'. It asks me then to reboot which I do, but when I when I have a look after the reboot it just says "None" next to everything.

2) I had a look at contents of the Recovery drive and pagefile.sys is still in there.
