Generally speaking, you don't want to use the pagefile. So, you turn it off, set it to the minimum, or put it on a separate drive.
Having enough RAM prevents this from happening, but you need you to have some RAM free at all times to avoid using the HDD space.
This is why 8GB is recommended now, you should usually have 2GB free at all time unless you know that you use more RAM.... --- 'The Intel i7-3770 if you're rich, the i5 2500K, i53570 or i53570k if you're doing okay, the AMD A10-5800K or i3 if you're just about hanging in there.'

RAM is cheap, anyway, but 8GB is fine for now. --- http://i.imgur.com/J0lvB6S.jpg | http://i.imgur.com/DoHj9yA.jpg | http://youtu.be/YXkx-PSwbG4

you know little about computers
I'm not lying when I say Arma 2 maxes out my memory resources
The only way around that is a larger page file or more RAM
And RAM? RAM is a lot, lot faster than any HDD. --- http://i.imgur.com/hOjV6w3.jpg
