Trick 2. Changes the paging file

By default, the file using Windows 7 for paging and relieve to some extent the access and use of main memory is located on the same partition where the operating system is installed (typically C: \).

If this is your case, go to Start / Control Panel / System and click Advanced system settings. In the Advanced tab, click Settings in the Performance section. In the new window, select the Advanced tab and click Change. Uncheck Automatically manage ..., select C: and brand No paging file. Then choose the partition where you want to locate the file, choose System managed size, accepts all the changes and restart Windows finally.

If you're running Windows 7 on a computer is not too strong, it may be interesting to sacrifice a beautiful and attractive visual interface with a more functional than consumes almost no resources. This comes back to Start / Control Panel / System and enters the Advanced System Settings. In the Advanced tab, click the Settings button in the Performance section. Inside the Visual Effects tab of the new window, enable the Adjust for best performance or, if you do not want to take a drastic solution, uncheck all those boxes with Aero features turned on and you want to do without them. It's only implement and accept all the changes.
