How to clean virtual memory of a PC?


I want to know if is possible to clean virtual memory of a computer?


Virtual memory can be found in the file named PageFile.sys. It is important to clean it regularly to avoid risk of crash or error message !

Steps to clean the virtual memory ;
  • Open "run" and type regedit
  • Search for HKey_Local_Machine/System/Current Control Set/Control/Session Manager/Memory Management
  • Right click on ClearPageFile At Shutdown and put value to "1"
  • This will clear your virtual memory each time you shutdown your computer
