Clear virtual memory pagefile at Windows-8 Shutdown (8.1, 10, seven)!


It is with Windows 8, 8.1, or seven fairly simple to adjust the settings so that the paging file (pagefile.sys, swapfile.sys) is deleted on shutdown. The solution is also for Windows 10!



To delete the paging file at PC shutdown on Windows (7,8,8.1), please open the Local Security Policy, the fastest way is, when using the keyboard shortcut [Windows + R] and the command: secpol.msc /s (... see Image-1 Arrow-1) .

Then simply click on "Local Policies", "Security Options" and highlight/click on the text "Shutdown: Clear virtual memory pagefile" (... see Image-1 Arrow-2)

Now a window opens called "Shutdown: Clear virtual memory pagefile Properties". Here enable or disable clearing the paging file at shutdown of the computer (PC). (... see Image-1 Arrow-3)

To activate delete the pagefile.sys at shutdown via cmd.exe: ... see here
