Don't believe everything you read.

Click on the box that says "Let Windows manage swap file settings".

I believe the defaults are (minimum) 1.5x your RAM and (maximum) 3x your 
RAM.  For example, if you have 512MB installed, your swap file will be 
sized (minimum) 768MB and (maximum) 1536MB.

There is very little reason for a user to play around with these 
settings.  Writelog is NOT a resource hog.
