Hello underground712!

The pagefile configuration looks OK.  But, I would move the pagefile over several drives.  Ultimately, for best performance, move it off of your primary drive.  However, with 2000 you'll loose emergency recovery options on startup.  Not always a good idea.  But, it depends on what other disaster recovery you already have in place.

FYI:  The best practice for the pagefile is...

Example: 512MB

Initial should be:  768
Maximum:  1536
