Hi everybody,

Every time I start up my machine I get the message 'Page file missing or too
small'.
I have already changed the settings (min = 512, max = 640, reg = 32), and I
have 320MB RAM.
The next time I check the values they are exactly the same as I changed.
I log on as Admin and I have full control and rights.

Nothing has helped me so far.

Please tell me what to do.

Did you click on "Set" after you typed in the page file sizes?

If the partition is NTFS, does it have full access for the "System"
account?

I log as Administrator (Groups = Administrators 'full control')
and of course I double click on set, I am a professional software developer.
This problem is going to make me leave Win2k and move on to NT.

You have to be an administrator, *AND* the "System" account has to have
full control of the partition.  You didn't say whether or not this last
condition is true.

Go into "My Computer", right click on the drive, choose "Properties",
select "SYSTEM" (or add it if its not there), and make sure all rows in
the bottom are checked "Allow".

I happen to have the same problem.  I solved mine by putting pagefile on a
different partition.

How do you add SYSTEM to properties if it isn't there?

I should do my research before posting.

This KB article explains the problem to a T.  Right down to the part where I
caused my own problem by deleting EVERYONE from permissions.

http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q259/1/51.ASP

My problem is corrected.  Good luck.

Dave

""Go into "My Computer", right click on the drive, choose "Properties",
select "SYSTEM" (or add it if its not there), and make sure all rows in
the bottom are checked "Allow".""

The only problem with your instructions was the one step you  left out,
"click on the security tab", it does make a difference when explaining how
to perform a procedure.  But as I stated 2 hours prior to your last post, I
found the KB article that explained it in detail.

Thanks anyway for your help.
