Pagefile missing?

I get an error message when I log into W2KPro about my pagefile being too small or does'nt exist. It gives instructions on how to increase/decrease it but that hasn't worked. I did a search for pagefile.sys which produced nothing. Does this mean that the pagefile has gone and if so how do I create a new pagefile.sys and in which folder do I put it?

Thanks VoG™ but unfortunately I have the same problem as the guy in the forum in that I have an AMD processor and not Intel.

Did you check click here out?

Thanks again VoG™. The file is probably hidden. I say probably because I'm at work at the moment and so will have to check when I get home.

I read in a book about viruses/security that Administrators should make all .exe & .com programs Read-only to help protect the system against viruses. This somehow caused my pagefile to become too small. When I put all the .exe & .com programs back to normal (ie able to write to) the pagefile problem disappeared. Also other problems have stopped as well such as when I tried to install a program on a CD.
