Go to:

Start
Run
Type msconfig and press enter
Go to the SYSTEM.INI tab
Click 386enh
Click the New button on the side
Type ConservativeSwapfileUsage=1 and press Enter
Apply the changes and reboot


Games should run faster, because instead of using the slow page file virtual memory off the hard drive, it uses the much faster physical memory.
