Fix the real issue
I'm always surprised by how people talk about tweaking swap file settings. The only time swap file settings make a difference is when 'useful' pages need to be swapped out of physical memory, then back in again later. If this is happening more than a little, the answer is not to tweak swap file settings. Get more RAM instead. The HDD is an order of magnitude slower than RAM, and processes are halted when pages are on the swap file and need to be paged back in. Now that even basic machines are coming with at least 2GB, and commonly 4GB of RAM I would have thought this issue would have faded away, but apparantly not.
