That can be caused by Windows' swap file.
Boot into Windows, turn off Virtual Memory, backup and defrag.
Then boot into a Linux install and set the slider where you want.
Final touch is to edit /boot/grub/menu.lst
 and change  "Windows"  to  "Endless Frustration".

There is no perl one line hack
 that a page of java won't do more elegantly.
