shutdown without deleting cache and swap

Windows 7 64 bit

A long time ago I greatly speeded up my shutdown time by making it not
delete the swap or cache (I don't recall which). I know want to make it
again delete whatever is in memory or swap but no longer remember how I
did it. Anyone know how that is done?

Thanks.

Example of your method.

http://helpdeskgeek.com/windows-7/force-windows-7-to-clear-virtual-memory-pagefile-at-shutdown/

A couple more ideas in this one, including a .reg file.

http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/157323-virtual-memory-paging-file-clear-shutdown.html

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management
ClearPageFileAtShutdown <--- 0 to disable, 1 to enable

And I ran into one thread, where the user wasn't able to make the change
stick. It kept reverting to the old value.
