Can't tell if you mean your pagefile.sys 'has to grow' or if you
mean it 'has grown' to about 76MB, but...
  You can set the maximum size of this file by going to
[Control Panel]-[System], and choosing "Virtual Memory".  Whatever size you choose is how big the thing will be.  Note that too small a paging file will result in a performance hit.  On the other hand, too large a paging file, and you end up with your current problem.  I have gotten the best results by having two smaller paging files on separate disks, rather than one large paging file, but this requires multiple disks.
