You can use it to get an idea of the page file requirements

I have my settings at the moment :
I entered 4095 in the max and 2048 in the min.
What settings do you recommend when you suggested I use the same numbers?

How big should the page file be?
There is a great deal of myth surrounding this question. Two big fallacies are:
The file should be a fixed size so that it does not get fragmented, with minimum and maximum set the same
The file should be 2.5 times the size of RAM (or some other multiple)
Both are wrong in a modern, single-user system
increasing the ram memory would solve it in one go

But I dont know what they should be. Any recommendations for a novice?!

The problem here is every different page you go to for the definitive answer tends to contradict the previous advice

I do not download much stuff. No music. Just a few pix now and again. First one loads ok. Second a little slower. Third usually freezes the screen.
I run AVG free version. Ad aware. I used ti run Norton but uninstalled it.
I still have Liveupdate 2.7 (Symantec Corp) in my programmes. Should I uninstall bearing in mind message flashes stating : We have determined that you still have some symantec apps. registered with Liveupdate. Shouls not remove unless all have been uninstalled first. What to do?

If you click search, include hidden and system files, do you get any Symantec / Norton files in programme files
Posted 19 February 2006 - 12:02 PM
13 files Norton
9 files Symantec

This is optional
Download, install and run Tune Up 2006 Trial
Click start then run, type prefetch then press enter, click edit then select all, right click any file then click delete, confirm delete.
Run Tune Up disc clean up
Run Tune Up registry clean up
Click optimize and improve to run Reg Defrag, the screen will lose colour during the process which can take a few minutes and then needs a reboot
Those will have cleared the drive of obsolete software errors
These are suggestions for making the most of the free trial
After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to optimize the computer, select computer with an internet connection from the drop down menu, this also requires a reboot
After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to accelerate downloads, select the speed just above your actual connection speed, this requires a reboot.
After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to run system advisor

I messed up. I put 'Norton/Symantec' in search - nothing.
Put 'Norton' in - 13 files.
Put 'Symantec' in - 9 files.
