Create a pagefile

AKA: SeCreatePagefilePrivilege, Create a pagefile

Default assignment: Administrators

This right is required to create a new pagefile or change the size of an existing pagefile. See Control Panel\System\Advanced\Performance\Settings\Advanced\Virtual Memory.

Other than being a possible denial-of-service this there aren’t major risks associated with this right but there’s also no reason most users will ever need it.
