    In Windows Vista I enabled pagefile encryption with EFS (via
    secpol.msc - Public Key Policies - Encrypting File System - Properties
    - Enable pagefile encryption) and rebooted Windows but pagefile.sys is
    still black.

    Why doesn't it become green like my other EFS encrypted files? how can
    I be sure that it's encrypted?

    You could boot into an alternative OS, and browse the pagefile to see if it
    contains any clear-text.
