    I have facing problem.

    when i close any window, word document, web browser, its closing very slowly,
    system very slow, i have updated anti virus software. I think this problem from paging file settings, but i don't how set.

    Please give me some solution.

    Pagefile is related to the physical amount of memory you have installed. How much do you have? Find out in Control Panel>System on the General tab and post back the details of the processor and the RAM or memory.

    Hiya siddarudhak96.

    The slow closing could be down to the graphics driver not being set up correctly although an incorrect page file or virtual memory setting will also have an effect.

    To set the page file, open up System Properties (Start -> Control Panel -> System) and click the Advanced tab. Now click the settings button under Performance and then the Advanced tab. Click Change in the Virtual memory box, and set it to System managed size, OK it and reboot the machine.

    Check that the graphics driver is up to date and the resolution and refresh rate are set as they should be and if you need any help locating an up to date driver, let us have some info about the chipset or card and I`m sure someone will follow it up.

    Regards
    Jenny

    If the system is set to handle the Virtual Memory, you're probably looking at 768Mb - one and one half times the physical RAM. Upgrade to 1Gb and that figure goes with it to 1.5. Your graphics are almost certainly onboard so there's a portion of your 512Mb on permanent loan to those - that could bring you down to 448Mb.

    Go to http://www.crucial.com and select your country's local site, then tick to agree the condition and download the scanner. IE may prompt you about an ActiveX object but it's quite safe. Let Crucial scan your system and tell you what's in there, what's available as upgrade options and how much they would want to sell it to you.

    Use that information to shop around but they're quite competitive and here in the UK, they ship very promptly. Fitting is simple - post back for more details.
