    Just let Windows automatically set the size. It will set a reasonable minimum to avoid the performance problems of a small swap file that grows, but it will allow it to grow so that you don't run out of virtual memory. It is also import to have a swap file so that if your system crashes, a crash dump file will be written. That can then be debugged and/or sent to Microsoft's Online Crash Analysis to determine the cause of the crash.
