Thanks

In XP when you enter the page file size on my PC, it objects if you put in anything but numbers, these numbwrs represent MB. Do you have 2 HD's because if so you can put a small fixed page file on C and a larger fixed size one on D. If you want to, email drive sizes to the yellow box and I will try to write a noddy guide

Actually

If you put the page file on a seperate HDD then this will make it faster, not on the same HDD.
