XP Swapfile?

By roy.smithies ·
When loging to XP I get an error that the pagefile is too small or does not exist. None of the available advanced system options change this error.

I found a technet article describing my error The solution assumed that the system and administrators groups did not have NTFS rights to the C filesytem where the pagefile.sys file resides. My system was running Fat32

I have subsequintly changed to NTFS for other reasons but now my PC takes about 15 Minutes to boot up

Any suggestions in which direction I should look for a soloution.

XP Swapfile?

This problem may also be due to the amount of memory that is installed on the machine also.
First check the configuration to make sure that windows is setting the swap file configuration
Open the Control Panel,double-click the System icon,select the Advanced tab the Performance to see what swap file size is noted,sometimes the sewap file size has an adverse effect on the computer that will slow the computer down.
