Many of us want our operating system to work fast and give us better usability but most of get confuse about what to do and what not. Once I also went through this problem and read many magazine , visited many sites and referred to many expert and I got a lot of option. So here is the list of few option which are tested and working that can make your OS go fast.

  • Services You Can Disable: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 suggest you read the description of each one when you run Services and that you turn them off one at a time.Some possibilities are:
    • Clip book
    • Fast User Switching
    • Human Interface Devices
    • Indexing Service
    • Messenger

    • Universal Plug and Play Device Host
    • Web Client
  • Cleaning the Prefetch Directory:Windows XP 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 shortcuts
    • Delete them

     

  • Not Displaying Logon, Logoff, Startup and Shutdown Status Messages:To turn these off:
    • Start ->Run-> type “Regedit”

    • Give it a value of 1

    • Check the box for /NOGUIBOOT

     

  • Getting Rid of Unread Email Messages: To remove the Unread Email message by user’s login names:
    • Start Regedit
    • For a single user: Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionUnreadMail
    • For all users: Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionUnreadMail
    • Create a DWORD key called MessageExpiryDays
    • Give it a value of 0.

     

  • Increasing System Performance:If you have 512 megs or more of memory, you can increase system performance by having the core system kept in memory.
    • Start Regedit
