    Hello, I recently due to my stupidity changed my page file's maximum and minimum usage. I've noticed that my performance in games and the performance in computer itself has dramatically changed. For example, after a few minutes of playing a game , the game starts lagging very bad and my fps rate goes rocket high. I have tried many methods of making my page file size go back to default but have failed. Please help me with this problem. Any help would be appreciated. :eek:

    Microsoft Windows XP
    Professional
    Version 2002

    There should be a check box in the virual memory window
    that says something like System managed size.
    Check that box then click apply/ok.
    Restart the computer.
    Windows will automatically adjust virtual memory size as needed.
