    Put the following into a .vbs file via notpade and then run it. You will
    see what your Pagefile is actually using and has used during the current
    session.

    ------------------------
    WriteToFile = True 'Options: True, False
    ShowPopup = True 'Options: True, False
    DisplaySeconds = 0 '0 (zero) to force OK

    If WScript.Arguments.Count > 0 Then
    WriteToFile = False
    ShowPopup = False
    DisplaySeconds = 0
    For Each arg in WScript.Arguments
    If LCase(arg) = "log" Then
    WriteToFile = True
    End If
    If LCase(arg) = "rpt" Then
    ShowPopup = True
    End If
    If Left(LCase(arg), 2) = "t:" Then
    If IsNumeric(Mid(arg, 3)) Then
    DisplaySeconds = Mid(arg, 3)
    End If
    End If
    Next
    End If

    For Each obj in GetObject("winmgmts:\\.\root\cimv2").ExecQuery(_
    "Select Name, CurrentUsage, PeakUsage, " & _
    "AllocatedBaseSize from Win32_PageFileUsage",,48)
    s = s & vbcrlf & "Pagefile Physical Location: " & vbtab & obj.Name
    s = s & vbcrlf & "Current Pagefile Usage: " & vbtab & obj.CurrentUsage
    & " MB"
    s = s & vbcrlf & "Session Peak Usage: " & vbtab & obj.PeakUsage & "
    MB"
    s = s & vbcrlf & "Current Pagefile Size: " & vbtab &
    obj.AllocatedBaseSize & " MB"
    Next

    If WriteToFile Then
    Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
    logfile = CreateObject("WScript.Shell"). _
    SpecialFolders("MyDocuments") & "\PagefileLog.txt"
    If NOT fso.OpenTextFile(logfile, 1, True).AtEndOfStream Then
    With fso.OpenTextFile(logfile, 1)
    s2 = .ReadAll : .Close
    End With
    End If
    With fso.OpenTextFile(logfile, 2)
    .Write Now() & vbcrlf & s & vbcrlf & vbcrlf & s2 : .Close
    End With
    End If

    If ShowPopup Then
    WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell").Popup _
    s, DisplaySeconds, "WinXP Pagefile Usage Monitor", 4096
    End If

    just let windows manage your pagefile and forget it...
    considering that today's harddrives are 250gigs and up
    who cares about the size of your pagefile

    swap would only degrade the performance for you.

    The vb didn't compile because a few lines wrapped in the post. So I
    attached the following file.
