So thanks to a recent upgrade, I’ve slightly more than doubled the RAM in my laptop. It’s now running with 1.25 GB of RAM. So why do I still need to worry about virtual memory? Do I need a swap file?

This morning I right-clicked on My Computer and set the Windows XP virtual memory settings to “No Paging File”. Rebooted.

Now I’m defragmenting my hard drive while browsing the web and updating this web site. Narry a glitch or complaint from the operating system.

When it finally barfs (perhaps on one more wafer-thin application) I’ll let you know
