Assuming you are running WinXP, click on Start, right-click on MyComputer, select properties, then hit the Advanced tab. In the performance section, hit the settings button, then the advanced tab. Now on the virtual memory section, hit the change button. On top is a list of drive/partition. As you click to highlight them, the info below will change. Make a note of which drive/partition shows a paging file, & its values.
To temporarly turn off paging file, which will delete it, just make sure all drives/partition are set on "no paging file". OK your way out of there & reboot.
When rebooted, go back there & reset a paging file, either as it were before, or tweak.
One school of thought is it should be set to twice the amount of physical memory you have installed. IE: You have 256Mb of memory installed, so set your virtual memory to 512 (min & max). Some say it is better to have a fixed size, as it can be ressource hungry for Windows to constantly adjust it.
Other school of thought is let Windows manage it, use the designated button for that.
Normally, you should have a paging file on only one drive/partition.
It is recommended to be on separate physical drive than OS, if applicable..
