Shutdown: Clear virtual memory pagefile

This policy setting determines whether the virtual memory pagefile is cleared when the system is shut down. When this policy setting is enabled, the system pagefile is cleared each time that the system shuts down properly. If you enable this security setting, the hibernation file (Hiberfil.sys) is zeroed out when hibernation is disabled on a portable computer system. It will take longer to shut down and restart the computer, and will be especially noticeable on computers with large paging files. This policy setting determines whether the virtual memory pagefile is cleared when the system is shut down. Fix: (1) GPO: Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\Security Options!Shutdown: Clear virtual memory pagefile (2) REG: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management!ClearPageFileAtShutdown
