I personally use Vista Business 64-bit and I'm a very heavy multi-tasker. I run 8GB of DDR2-1066 RAM. I've also disabled the page file. Runs smooth like butter!
Is disabling page file safe? I've read tons of articles, but none had clear answer. Do you completely disable or leave some space for system crush dump files, etc.?

Do not disable the pagefile.

Set it to a static size of about 2gb and leave it.
