Don't disable the pagefile! There's a lot of uneducated nonsense going on about the pagefile on the interwebs...

I'd like to chime in with a "me too" response. Disabling your page/swapfile does not make paging stop - it causes thrashing earlier when your system needs to use physical memory. All contemporary hardware/software nowadays uses virtual memory, which needs to be able to remove physical pages from memory. If there is no page/swapfile, then executable pages are removed. This is a bad performance decision to make.
