go to the system information how i described in a earlier post and type the page file value it should be the same as mine if windows has the default paging file settings (i have the same amount of ram as you 8GB)

Open Snipping Tool by clicking the Start button , clicking All Programs, clicking Accessories, and then clicking Snipping Tool. (or just type Snipping Tool in the start menu search box and click Snipping Tool on the result)

it pops up on the desktop

Click the arrow next to the New button, select a snip type from the menu, and then use your mouse or tablet pen to capture a snip.

then you save it to your picture files

great thanks you have lots of paging file so its not that we need to find out how much ram windows has allocated in the system resource monitor will tell you this.

type resource monitor in the start menu search box and click on the result. and click on the memory tab in the window at the top.

computer running slow even though 15% memory remaining
Sometime I do somewhat intensive processing that causes 85% of my 6GB ram to be used. But when 85% is being used, my machine completely slows down for all other tasks including very basic tasks like opening Windows Explorer. Surely the remaing 15% should be more than enough to open Windows...
