Default Task Manager Question

I have a couple questions about what my Task Manager is displaying.

For one, is it normal for my Page File Usage to be up in the 650-700 MB range, when I do not have any major programs running? I have not noticed this before a week or so ago.

Also, I have noticed that the Mem. Usage of explorer.exe and svchost.exe have been higher than they used to be. They are now taking up more than 40, 000 k, almost 50, 000. Is this normal?

Because of the PF usage being so high, I can't help but lag so much every time I attempt to open a file bigger than 100mb or so. I have checked for viruses, spyware, and nothing is coming up. Is there something wrong with my computer? If so, how can I fix this?

up your paging file... its under your system properties on the advanced tab/performance. Double or triple it... whatever your heart desires.

Thanks for the info, I will try that at once. Also, I had it set at 1024, but it went down for some reason. Anyone know why that is?
