Sounds more like you are infected with a virus / malware.

What did you delete when you did your "disk clean"?

There are a number of things to do before setting a pagefile

run chkdsk /f to check disk integrity
run disk cleanup and defrag the drive to provide the largest free space available.

MicroSoft recommends system managed for 98% of users concerning the pagefile.

But again I don't believe the pagefile specifically is the issue.
