Defragging the pagefile is quite similar to defragging locked files on NT 4. Just use a boot-time defragmentation (which many defraggers offer,) to defrag the paging file. With Win2000/XP, you can also perform an online defragmentation.

Check the defragger's manual to get more info on the features offered!
