Pagefile defrag issues

    Hello. I recently downloaded UltraDefrag to sort out my page file
    fragmentation. I've tried to boot defrag but the page file is still
    fragmented. I've tried optimizing during boot also but it doesn't do anything
    to the page file. It has 2242 fragments and it's located all over the disk. I
    read something about journal files preventing large system files from being
    touched but someone said this had been fixed in 5.0. Any suggestions?

    Forgot to add that I'm running windows 7 .

    You could do the following:

    1) disable the page file

    2) run boot time quick optimization to consolidate free space

    3) enable the page file again

    This way you should get a rather contiguous page file.
