    Hi there

    According to Diskeeper 2008, my page file is fragmented into 810 pieces :eek:. Unfortunately, the Boot Time Defragmenter doesn't work when I do it with Diskeeper - my PC just crashes on 3%.

    So, are there any other programs that will get rid of all these fragments? I downloaded a simple little App from Microsoft called PageDefrag. This got it down from 810 to 435, however 435 is still pretty disastrous.

    Any ideas?

    Set it to zero, reboot, defrag as normal, set it to a fixed size, reboot. Should do the trick.

    The page file!?

    - My Computer
    - Properties
    - Advanced
    - Virtual memory 'Change'
    - Set 'No paging file'
    - Reboot
    - Defrag
    - Back to the Virtual Memory settings
    - Choose 'Custom Size' and set the min/max to the same value
    - Reboot
