Virtual Memory Question
 
Hello

I'm investigating setting the Virtual Memory on the desktops at work to a set permanent amount (this supposedly prevents the re-sizing of the virtual memory, preventing "disk thrashing", thereby improving performance.

Does anybody have any experience setting up there Virtual memory this way?
and if so how did you measure the performance gains?

1. The average user is best served by LEAVING THE PAGE FILE ALONE. XP does an excellent job of managing the page file settings for most people.
This would apply to Vista as well...
