Default Speeding up Your Computer

September 18th, 2009, 06:58
This is a short guide that will walk you through a couple steps that will help speed up your computer.

1. Startup Processes

* Go to: Start>Run>Type "msconfig"(without the quotes)
* Go to the Startup Tab
* Uncheck any processes you don't use at startup(e.x. Quicktime, AIM, MSN)
* Click Apply then Restart


2. CCleaner
CCleaner is a great little application that deletes cookies, clears cache, empties your recycle bin, etc.

* Download CCleaner(from google)
* Iinstall CCleaner then Run Cleaner it(note: This will clear your cookies which means your saved passwords and usernames will be gone)
* Go to the Registry tab and Scan for Issues
{*]After its finished scanning click>Fix selected issues…>Fix All Selected Issues>Ok. Continue this process until scanning brings about no issues.


3. Bootvis.exe

* Download bootvis.exe(from google)
* Install bootvis.exe
* In the toolbar go to Trace>Optimize System. The system will reboot after 10 seconds.

Any reason why this has been copy & pasted across a hundred different forums? There's a couple of these type of first-posters already here but I'm curious why they are so helpful/questioning?!

No idea, but there's a page on wikipedia about BootVis. Only for XP, it would seem.

You can simply put your PC to do the paging in another disc , specially when it comes to games this is the trick that works the best.
