|Couple of suggestions;|
make the pagefile static, not grow/contract dynamically. This is what leads to pagefile fragmentation [bad].
You do this by setting the min/max values the same.
Now this may be a surprise to you but with 2gigs ram you really don't need a page file. If this was a server I wouldn't recommend it, but I have run xp pro for extended periods of time doing everything and have experienced excellent performance.
Technically you should have a 3 [2x1.5] gig pagefile but I would bet you could set min and max at 1/2gig and you would be fine.
BTW the reason you move the pagefile for optimization is to seperate pagefile disk input/output from system OS I/O. You can't accomplish that with a single disk.
IMHO the days of file placement on the disk being optimal isn't measureable anymore. With the higher densities, spindle speeds, and especially onboard caches, it really doesn't matter where on the disk the data is.
Now back in the days with megabyte IDE it did make a difference. But everything was slow then so it was noticeable [by a little not a lot].
Give a person a fish you feed them for a day.
Ask a person to internet search and they learn a skill for a lifetime.
