I have a Windows 7 64-bit computer that is having performance issues. After some investigation, I have discovered that the page faults / second on it - as reported by Performance Monitor - are really high.
Everything else seems to be normal. Resource Monitor reports no hard faults and lots of available memory.
Is this a potential cause for problems, or is it a red herring? If it is something that could be causing problems, what should I do next to figure out what is causing it?
Here is a screenshot of the Performance Monitor. Notice that the average page faults / second is 75,887. On another computer that does not have problems, this number is closer to 3,000.
Here is a screenshot of the Resource Monitor, sorted by hard faults / second, which is currently 0 for all processes.
