One trick is to move the PF to another drive/partition, then defrag the drive where the PF was. Some defrag software like Disckeeper can do PF defrag for you. Probably a trial version on downloads.com.

yes, the pagefile is the virtual memory location.

to clear it without moving it, try just setting it to a min and max size of 0 (zero) MB, then reboot, defrag, and set it back to 2gb.

 

also, open the security policy editor (secpol.msc) and find the section to set it to clear the pagefile at every reboot.
