Windows created a temporary paging file on your computer because of a problem that occurred with your paging file configuration when you started your computer. The total paging file size for all disk drives may be somewhat larger than the size you specified. Do you have this error message pops up as soon as you login to Windows ? Let’s fix this!
Happy New Year everyone! Welcome to P&T IT BROTHER’s blog. It is our first blog post of the year 2017! We are starting the blog with Windows troubleshooting of course.. Personally, this error message is rare. We have never seen this until today. 😀 😀 😀 When we first saw this, we tried to turn on and off the Windows virtual memory, and we tried to set memory manually, but we couldn’t get rid of this long error message at Windows startup. It was very annoying, but we found a solution for this. We don’t guarantee that this will work for all of you, but we wish that this little tip is very helpful for some of you.
How to fix this “Windows created a temporary paging file on your computer..”
Let’s try this first. Click on “Computer” (in Windows 7) or click on “This PC” (in Windows 8 and Windows 10) then, right-click it. Select “Properties“. In here, click “Advanced system settings“. Click “Settings” under Performance tab. Now, click “Change…” under Virtual memory.
In here, if the “Automatically manage paging file size for all drives” option is turned on, try to turn it off by clicking it, then choose “No paging file“. Click “Set“, then you can click “OK” to finish. You must restart the computer to see the effect.
If the “Automatically manage paging file size for all drives” is turned off, try to turn this option on by clicking it. Click “OK” and restart the computer to find out if the paging error message exists.
Still have the issue after you have completed the above instructions ? Don’t worry. There is one more thing we can try. Let’s go to your main system disk folder. If your system drive is c:, go to the drive. We are now looking for a hidden file named “pagefile.sys“. Since this is a hidden file, you will not able to see the file. Let’s open “Folder Options” and select “Show hidden files, folders, and drives“. Normally, you can access the “Folder Options” on the top menu of file explorer, but you can also find it in “Control Panel“.
Look for “pagefile.sys” and delete the file. After deleting the file, restart your computer. In our case, removing the “pagefile.sys” resolved the “Windows created a temporary paging file on your computer because of a problem that occurred with your paging file configuration when you started your computer. The total paging file size for all disk drives may be somewhat larger than the size you specified“. error message at Windows startup. Our operating system was Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit version. We hope that you have fixed the problem too! If you have any difficulties or problems, leave a comment here, and we will try to help you to solve your computer problem.
Happy New Year !!! 😀 😀 😀
