Windows 7: I have 12Gigd of RAM can I cancel windows paging file on the SSD?

Windows 7 Professional 64 bits
I have 12Gigd of RAM can I cancel windows paging file on the SSD?

Why did I get so much RAM? The computer shop played a trick on me, originally the PC came with 4 gigs and I wanted to add some more ( being a 64 bit system) I went to the PC shop "I need to add RAM" "I only have 8Gigs at the moment"

So can I get Windows to stop using up my read and write cycles of my SSD and write it's paging file onto RAM?

With 12 GB I would just turn off the paging file.

A paging file is a chunk of space on the hard drive that is used as virtual ram, it doesn`t get written to the memory, it writes to the hard drive.

Paging File
When I go to boot up the computer sometimes it states that my computer has made a temp paging file. Doesn't tell me where, it side it did. I have a RAM Disk installed which I've told the paging file to go to, to include my temp files. I've done this because I have an SSD.

Paging File
When my system boots I get a message that there is no paging file and windows will set a tempoary one. I have 4 gigs of ram so I go through the procedure of setting a page file size and reboot after which I get the same message. Can someone tell me what I must do to correct this? Thanks, Bob
