thats not how the pagefile works. they place it at the end so that as it needs to grow it can have the room it needs, also helps to keep it from fragmenting as much as it would if it were in the begining.

2 ways to speed up performance: 1: add memory
2: boot into safe mode, delete the pagefile.sys file from the root of c:\. reboot. it will recreat the file.

if you have a secondary drive you could move the pagefile to that drive.

I don't want the page file to grow, it is already 1.5GB (this is the min and max) in size and that is as big as I am going to let it be. Is there a way to move it or would I have to put it on its own partition, I only have one hard drive. I have got diskeeper So I can defragment the page file on boot.
