-Fine Tune Your Systems Memory
You need at least 256MB of ram to do this:
Go to Start > Run then type in REGEDIT -and then to the following key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM \CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management
1.DisablePagingExecutive -Double click it and in the decimal put a 1 - this allows XP to keep data in memory now instead of paging sections of ram to harddrive yeilds faster performance.
2.LargeSystemCache- Double click it and change the decimal to 1 -this allows XP Kernal to Run in memory and improves system performance a lot.
3.IOPageLockLimit - Create a new dword and name it double click it and set the value in hex - 4000 if you have 128MB of ram or set it to 10000 if you have 256MB set it to 40000 if you have more than 512MB of ram -this tweak will speed up your disckcache.
Tweak The Swap File
For Users with 256 MB RAM or more this tweak will boost their Windows- and Game-Performance.
What it does: It tells Windows not to use any Swap File until there is really no more free RAM left.
Open the System Configuration Utility by typing msconfig.exe in the RUNConservativeSwapfileUsage =1" under the 386enh section.
Restart your Windows and enjoy better Game performance
command. There in your System.ini you have to add "
Changing the Login Screen Saver
If you want to change the screen saver that runs at the login prompt:
Go to HK_USERS / .DEFAULT / Control Panel / Desktop
Double click on SCRNSAVE.EXE
Enter in the screen saver you want to use
-Decreasing Boot Time
M'zoft has made available a program to analyze and decrease the time it takes to boot to WindowsXP
The program is called BootVis
Uncompress the file.
For a starting point, run Trace / Next Boot + Driver Delays
This will reboot your computer and provide a benchmark
After the reboot, BootVis will take a minute or two to show graphs of your system startup.
Note how much time it takes for your system to load (click on the red vertical line)
Then run Trace / Optimize System
Re-Run the Next Boot + Drive Delays
Note how much the time has decreased
Mine went from approximately 39 to 30 seconds
2.Virtual Memory Size. Change the size of your page file size. So. Control Panel, System, Advanced Tab, Performance, settings button & then Advanced. At the bottom you can change the virtual memory. We use min & max set at 500MB.
3.While you are there. You will also have noticed on your way through that you can change the Visual Effects. You are given a choice. Why not try the performance version for increased performance.
4.System Restore. This can be turned off a well by clicking this tab.
5.Remote assistance. Click the Remote tab and make sure the options there are not ticked.
6.Speech Recognition or handwriting software. Do you use it. No. Right. Control Panel, Regional & Language Options, Languages, Details, Advanced, System Config and "Turn off" Advanced Language Services.
Now lets tweak the Administrative tools section.
control panel->administrative tools->services.
Select the extended tab at the bottom. Here you see the services that are running or not if they have been stopped already. So, which ones do we not need to have running all the time if at all. Windows XP tweaks aplenty.
1.Error Reporting Service. No we do not need that. Since when has Microsoft helped you. So high-light it and then double click it. Up come a panel with options. Half-way down is says "Start Up Type". Click the drop-down button and select Disable and OK. That told it.
2.Fast User Switching Compatibility. Are you basically the only person using the computer, if not, so what. Disable that as you did above.
3.Indexing Service. What's the point in Windows continually indexing your hard drive or drives for searches you never do. Disable.
4.Network DDE & Network DDE DSDM. If you are not connected to a network or broadband using Ethernet this too can be Disabled.
5.Portable Media Serial Number. Not using an MP3 player or iPod then disable.
6.Windows XP Pro tweaks & tips just keep coming.
7.QoS RSVP. Stop Windows using your bandwidth. Disable will stop all that Windows traffic that you cannot believe is going on. This tweak, top can reclaim anything up to 25% of your bandwidth.
8.Remote Registry. Do you want remote computers to alter your registry. Disable.
9.Smart Card. If you do not use a Smart Card on your computer then you can disable this too.
10.System Restore. What's the point in Windows XP Pro continually every so many minutes taking a snap shot of your system. Disable.
11.Themes. Since we have adjusted for performance lets disable this as well.
12.Uninteruptible Power Supply. If you do not have one fitted to your PC computer then this can be disabled too. Who has.
13.Wireless Zero Configuration. Do you use WiFi. No. Disable.
You can also see others there that you do not want running.
Change User Account Pics
1. Go to : C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\User Account Pictures\Default Pictures
* Dir is hidden
2. Delete the ones you never use
3. Add your own 48x48 .jpg/.png/.gif/.bmp images.Amar Reviewed by Amar on . windows xp tweak settings lets tweak windows xp to make it fast. lets start with some registry tweaks.
