Default 3 problems I am currently having with my PC

Question number 1: how do I resize the page file in windows XP pro SP2 ? I am using a program called cachemanXP but I can't find the actual option that will let me boost it from 255 to at least 500MB

Question number 2: I am really having a problem with DLL's getting corrupted, about 10% of my system DLL's are screwed up and the rest belongs to small software issues with dll's example paint shop pro 8 boots up and says it can't find a dll to go fully functional. also I have used power max to find out what problems I have with my machine but I can't fix i just yet because I have to buy the **** software.....

Question number 3 I have a wintvgo tuner card and I am trying to use wintv scheduler to record a certain program off my digital cable box, when I boot up winscheduler it says it can't load the dll, it says that I have to be the original administrator to use this I found this off the happuage website last night. also I am the computer administrator on my PC

Default Re:


For Question 1: To resize your page file, go to your Control Panel > System > Advanced Tab > Click the Settings button in the Performance box > Click the Advanced Tab > Click the Change button in the Virtual Memory box.

Here's a short guide on Page File Size http://www.theeldergeek.com/physical..._file_size.htm
