Quite often, you have to change the paging file as to how windows manages it, this forces a new rule for windows page managing.  My computer, properties, advanced, performance, settings, advanced, change, click the drive you want (see how well hidden this is), then system page file -- it SHOULD be set to "let windows manage the size", but windows itself sets it by default to a fixed size -- really dumb.  So if that is the case, change it to let windows manage the size, and make SURE you click APPLY at this stage, else nothing will take.  Then reboot.  The problem should disappear after that.
