    Well should have it enabled, good in case something installed makes your system unstable or have errors can go back to best known configuration. What program talking about ,what are reasons you feel need more memory, how much RAM do you have. Software not going to use memory till you use them. If Hard drive is low on space, this can degrade performance and as drive uses Pagefile too. Looking to free up space on drive for a reason ?

    8GB is plenty for just about most software unless your intensive graphic programs and memory hungry gaming. 500GB is a lot problem is more when out 500 have 20-10% left. Keep it clean, history,cache, temp files, defrag it monthly and keep system and windows up to date. Deleted software do not use, lessen amount of start up programs. Use this if do not have it, free CCleaner - PC Optimization and Cleaning - Free Download
