    The page file is basically space on your hard Drive that is dedicated as a sort of "secondary" RAM, I guess you could call it Hard Drive RAM. To change it, you go to Control Panel > System > Advanced Tab > Performance Settings > Advanced Tab > At the very bottom, under virtual memory, it will have a button titled Change. Click that, and you can change your paging file. It should be roughly 1.5times your actual RAM, for instanc

    512mb RAM=768mb page file
    256mb RAM=512mb page file

    and so on.

    You need to do some reading - the pagefile is quite important. It should not be 1.5xRAM - that's a mistaken rule. The less RAM you have the larger your pagefile should be. Read this page of my XP Guide.
