You can change the size of the page file if you want by doing this:

- Start -> Right-Click "Computer" -> Properties
- Click "Advanced System Settings" in the left part of the Window
- Click the "Advanced" tab
- Click the "Setting" button under "Performance"
- Click the "Advanced" tab
- Click the "Change..." button under "Virtual Memory"
- Click the "Custom Size" button, enter the sizes you want, and click the "Set" button
- Click the "OK" buttons to close all of the windows.

The default size of 1.5X RAM is a "safe" amount, but with modern computers having 2GB or more of memory few people actually need that much. To see how much page file you need, run Task Manager (Ctrl+Shift+Esc), select the "Performance" tab, and monitor the memory size graph while you run the biggest workload you ever use (the most programs running at the same time with the most/biggest documents and web pages open).

For example, if the memory graph shows "5GB" and if you have 4GB of memory, that means you need 1GB of pagefile space. It would probably be wise multiply the amount shown by the memory graph by 1.25 or 1.5 to provide a margin of safety. (Note that this is 1.25 to 1.5X the amount of memory you're USING, not the amount of memory you have INSTALLED).
