Make your PC Faster

There are quite a few services you can disable from starting automatically. 
This would be to speed up your boot time and free resources. 
They are only suggestions so I suggestion you read the description of each one when you run Services 
and that you turn them off one at a time. 

Some possibilities are: 

  • Alerter 
  • Application Management 
  • Clipbook 
  • Fast UserSwitching 
  • Human Interface Devices 
  • Indexing Service 
  • Messenger 
  • Net Logon 
  • NetMeeting 
  • QOS RSVP 
  • Remote Desktop Help Session Manager 
  • Remote Registry 
  • Routing & Remote Access 
  • SSDP Discovery Service 
  • Universal Plug and Play Device Host 
  • Web Client 



Cleaning the Prefetch Directory 

WindowsXP has a new feature called Prefetch. This keeps a shortcut to recently used programs. 
However it can fill up with old and obsolete programs. 

To clean this periodically go to: 

Star / Run / Prefetch 
Press Ctrl-A to highlight all the shorcuts 
Delete them 



If you like to make any changes in Boot relating options

Run MSCONFIG 
Select sutaible options





Increasing Graphics Performance 

By default, WindowsXP turns on a lot of shadows, fades, slides etc to menu items. 
Most simply slow down their display. 

To turn these off selectively: 


System Properties 
Click on the Advanced tab 
Under Performance, click on the Visual effect 
To turn them all of, select Adjust for best performance or
Adjust for best performance
