For Users with 256 MB RAM or more this tweak will boost their Windows- and Game-Performance. What it does: It tells Windows not to use any Swap File until there is really no more free RAM left.

To enable this option, follow the next steps:

  1. Click Start -> Run and type msconfig to open the System Configuration Utility.
  2. There in your System.ini you have to add "ConservativeSwapfileUsage=1" under the 386enh section (see picture 1).
