Thread: CPU Questions
If you open Task Manager, go to the performance tab. You will see a button at the bottom labeled Resource Monitor. If you open that, then go to the memory tab in the resource monitor, you can see how your machine is doing on physical and virtual memory. If you machine has very little free physical memory and the virtual memory utilization is high, you probably did the right thing in creating the page file manually. If, on the other hand, you still have plenty of free physical memory, chances are pretty good that you are actually reducing your performance and that things would work better if you switched your page file back to auto mode and set your kernel dump mode to small.
