windows error

hello,

i keep getting this event id: 2011

Unable to collect System Pagefile performance data. The first four bytes (DWORD) of the Data section contains the status code.

when i looked for a solution, it did not help, but i figured as i do not have a pagefile on my VM (virtual machine - vmware) then it must be because this.

It seems to error ever 30secs (in the event viewer) and it is not being counted in the performance monitor. (50,000+ events)

how can i fix this?

i have 30gb vRAM (running 93%)

do i somehow stop the monitoring, or add a pagefile?

Regards,

add the pagefile
just because you have a lot of physical memory doesn't justify disabling it

The vast majority of users should never disable the pagefile or mess with the pagefile settings—just let Windows deal with the pagefile and use the available RAM for file caching, processes, and Superfetch.

http://lifehacker.com/5426041/understanding-the-windows-pagefile-and-why-you-shouldnt-disable-it

People have tested this theory and found that, while Windows can run without a page file if you have a large amount of RAM, there’s no performance benefit to disabling the page file.
