I find the solution:

 

Problem.- All the standar solutions did not  work because the file pagefile.sys was corrupted (Possible corruption :windows working with low memory)

Solution : Repair unit C: and next use the standard solution

 

1.-Enter to Repair Mode in Windows  using : hold Shift key and restart button and continue hold the Shift key  (windows 7, 8 and 10)

2.- Choose command prompt  (CMD)  the status the pagefile.sys trying delete it 

     command:   C: del C:pagefile.sys

     Response: Could not Find C:page.sys

    command:   C: attrib -s -h pagefile.sys

    Response: Directory or file corrupted

 

3.- Select the repair unit c: it will take 20 min

4.- Next use the standard solution to modify pagefile.sys

5.- Completed
