Run regedt32 and go to the following location:

Hkey_local_machine\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management

There you will find these entries:

PagingFiles:Reg_Multi_SZ:C:\pagefile.sys 190 380

TempPageFile:Reg_Dword:0x1

If the PagingFiles: entry is populated, delete the entire TempPageFile entry then reboot.

I used ERD Commander to perform the RegEdit for this exact same issue but removing the "TempPageFile:Reg_Dword:0x1" entry completely still didn't work. I even tried deleting the Pagefile.sys file as well and I am still getting the error and back to the login screen. Any other suggestions? And no, I can not upgrade to XP. This is a corperate pc and that is not allowed.

Thanks for any input you might have!
