To have your system automatically clear the paging file at shutdown, you'll need to edit your system registry, but be careful whenever you modify your registry.
Update: Before you change your registry settings, backup your registry.
1. Go to Start->Run and type in "regedit".
2. Find this key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management.
3. Look for the ClearPageFileAtShutdown entry. Double click on it and enter "1" in the value data box.
