Increase the Performance of your Windows XP or Vista… Part 2

Posted by treest on 4 March 2009

5:. Reduce Page File Size


Page file size is not constant by default. Due to this, the operating
system has to resize the file each time more space is required. This
is a performance overhead. All you have to do is to set the file size to
a reasonable limit.
Follow the steps:
1. Right-click My Computer, Select Properties
2. Click the Advanced tab
3. Click the Settings button under the Performance section


4. Click the Advanced tab
5. Under the Virtual
Memory section click
the Change button
6. “Virtual Memory”
dialogue box will appear
(also shown in the figure
below)
7. Highlight the C: drive
containing page file
8. Select the Custom Size
radio button and give
same values in Initial
size and Maximum size
fields:
If you have less than 512MB
of memory, leave the page
file at its default size. If you
have 512MB or more, change the ratio to 1:1 page file size to
physical memory size.
9. Click Set, then OK buttons to apply the changes

6. Clean Your System Registry


Of course, the fastest and easiest way to speed-up your computer is
to allow a software program to do it for you! Although you will find
that all of the adjustments in this book will speed up your system,
the most effective and easiest way to give your computer blazing
speed is to clean up your system’s Registry.
Your computer is like your car: it needs periodic maintenance to
keep it running at optimum performance. Installing and un-installing
programs, surfing the Internet, emailing, and other everyday
activities create a sort of “sludge” that builds up in your computer
over time, much like an automobile engine. After a while, it doesn’t
startup like when it was new, it stalls unexpectedly, and performance
is sluggish on the (information) highway.

We strongly recommend running a free Registry scan to find out
how many errors you computer is hiding from you. Your computer
will likely have hundreds of Registry errors that are dramatically
slowing down the potential speed and performance.

7. Run Disk Clean-Up


Both Windows and application programs tend to leave temporary
files lying around on your hard drive, taking up space. A hard drive
that is close to being “full” can cause Windows to slow down or
interfere with efficient disk access and virtual memory operations.
If you surf the web a lot, your temporary internet files folder can
become quite large, causing Internet Explorer to slow down or
malfunction. Cleaning up unneeded files, scanning for disk errors
and defragmenting the hard drive can help to restore some zip to
your system. Try to run once a month for peak performance.
1. Double-click the
My Computer
icon.
2. Right-click on
the C: drive
3. Select
Properties
4. Click the Disk
Cleanup button
(to the bottomright
of the
Capacity pie
graph)
5. Select / check
Temporary
Internet Files
and Recycle Bin
6. Click OK

8. Enable Direct Memory Access (DMA)


1. Right-click on My Computer, select Properties
2. Select the Hardware tab
3. Click the Device Manager button
4. Double-click IDE/ATAPI controllers
5. Double-click on the Primary IDE Channel
6. Click on the Advanced Settings tab (as shown in figure) The
tab may or may not be available for each option. It is only
available in Primary and Secondary Channels.
7. Set the Transfer Mode to “DMA if Available” both for Device
1 and 0
8. Click OK
9. Perform the same operation for other items in the list, if
applicable.
