    Hello, I have a question..

    What is the file "pagefile.sys" in the C:\ drive (Yes I do have show hidden files and all that on)

    But here is why i'm wondering what this file is..

    Mine says it is 3.99GB and my friend checked hers and hers said 768MB...

    Why is mine so big?

    Control Panel>System>Advanced>Performance>Settings>Advanced>Virtual Memory>Change. Is the radio button marked for "System managed size?" If not, select that, click "Set," and then OK your way out. Reboot. Any change?
