Pagefile is reserved space on the hard drive in case you run out of physical memory, the hard drive can write the overflow to the hard drive and not crash the PC.

For the Windows 7 look for xp, Google this: Windows 7 theme for XP. You'll find many themes for free that will make xp look like Windows 7 there.

Cheers!

What do you mean that you have space elsewhere.
Do you have other partitions on the same HDD?
Try this pagefile.sys is a file windows uses to set aside space for virtual memory. If you have 8 GB of RAM, you should have no need for this and can turn it off if you want.

Right click on My Computer and choose properties (or go control panel -> system). On the left, choose Advanced System Settings.
On the tab that pops up, at the top (in the 'Performance' section of the tab) choose Settings.
In the next window, choose the 'Advanced' tab and you will see the section for virtual memory at the bottom. Just click change and you will be able to set the size or turn it off completely. set your initial pagefile size to 400 set the max to 1000 MB.

You will have separate pagefiles for each OS. You cannot use a single pagefile for multiple OS installs, they are unique to each OS.

Page file


Computers use the RAM of the computer to store the active programs, and perform other operating system functions. Obviously, there is a limit to how much RAM is available for this function. This is why Windows runs faster with more RAM installed.

Since Windows allows you to open multiple programs and switch between them, it is more efficient to "swap" inactive programs or parts of programs out of RAM, so a special disk files is created - "pagefile.sys".

Pagefile.sys is related to the "Virtual Memory" function of Windows.

You can see the pagefile setup by right clicking on My Computer, the go to Properties/Advanced/Performance/Advanced.
