Ok I have tried an 8gb page file still same problem, link from ded9 is for 64bot - I am running 32bit.  Anyone also know how to stop the service pack trying to install every time the pc shuts down - is becoming a real pain, there is not an option to hide update - client connected to sbs2008 server.
