This question pertains to windows 7 only. Please, please don't tell me about vista, xp, 2000, millenium, 98, 95 or 3.whatever. People keep telling me how much better windows 7 is than previous iterations. But I keep running into a brick wall when discussing this on other forums, no one will give me a straight answer. Simple question, really; If you try to turn off the swap file in windows 7, does it create one anyway like previous versions of windows? And if so, where does it put it? I don't need to know all the reasons why one might not want to turn off the swap file. I don't need to know how important it is to let windows run itself. I don't need to know that you consider microsoft's engineers to be much smarter than I am so I should let them go ahead and let windows make my decisions for me. I only need to know the answer to these two questions, so please, please can someone just answer and we can be done. Thank you.
