win7 perfmon

hello, I have been working on computers for about 19 years, and strangely haven't really needed to use the performance monitor much. So, anyhow, recently at work it looks like I need to find some slowness issues on some Windows 7 boxes. I suspect that these computers don't have enough memory, so I'm monitoring page faults/sec and here are two screen shots

does this look like not enough memory? I know this it a snap shot, however, this is the most typical graph I'm seeing, Sometimes the page faults/sec go down, but for the most part the graph stays high.

I don't think your graph is abnormal. My graph stays at 100 (top line) and dips down.  My machine is NOT slow. Page faults per second is not the first place I look.

Look in more traditional spots.  

1. Make sure your operating system is 64-bit and you have 4 GB or more of memory.
2. Run Disk Cleanup to remove temporary files.
3. Run IE Internet Options, Advanced, Reset (do not choose "delete personal settings").
4. Run Disk Defrag.

Now restart your system and test.
