i'm considering using no page file. is this a bad idea? if i do so will the page file delete itself? i have 2 gigs of ram on a dual core 2.4. what happens if there is no page file and there is more data being stored than that in the ram?

Yes it is bad. Some programs NEED a page file. If you must, make it as small as possible, windows will only use it when it has to. If theres no page file and one is needed, i believe that you will get an error and maybe even a BSOD.

do you know how to move the page file to the front of the computer?

how do you mean?

also, yes, some programs complain if there's no page file, but in my experience, only photoshop has given me a message about it..it ran anyway tho....all i did was set a 32mb (min and max) page file and that message disappeared...with 2 gigs of ram, the max you'd probly ever need would be no more than 128mb page file...
