You call that over weight. That's not over weight, I have a gig of ram and right now mine is at 700megs. The swap file is used as needed don't worry about it being big. Some application uses the swap more than others it's the nature of windows.

How can I slim this file down? It's at 80mb right now and growing.

If your swap file is that size, then thats whats needed. Windows allocates Swap as it is needed. Also 80MB isnt much at all. If it were a few gigs then maybe I'd worry :)
