Thanks for helping.

Did do, but the pagefile.sys still remains. When I try to delete it, I get the following error message.

"The file 'pagefile.sys' is to large for the destination file system."

Any other suggestions?
What OS'es are on the computer?

Can you guys both show us a screenshot of the "virtual memory" window where you can change the size?

Silver0066~

You probably can't delete the pagefile.sys because you don't have enough hard drive space. Doing a regular delete adds it to the recycle bin, which still counts towards your hard drive space.

If you do a shift delete, it permanently deletes a file without sending it to the recycle bin.

Hope that helps.
