    Speeding up Your Computer .....

    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(only for windows)

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

    Sorry if I seem suspicious... "Location: klj'jjp'j" and only one post by this person.

    Don't want anyone using this unless they are sure this information is legit.

    Anyone, please share your experience with this, if you have?

    Re: Speeding up Your Computer .....

    Not sure if the OP's program is kosher...

    My mantra is to buy a decent defragger and make sure that the performance files (FSX) and the like are moved to the fastest part of the disk (the outside). Defrag after any new installs or file movement/deletion. Disabling any unecessary start up programs also helps...

    Re: Speeding up Your Computer .....

    If you have a powerful PC, have done all the usual FSX.CFG tweaks and you still have blurred scenery then its worth considering buying a RAID card and running a number of disks in Raid 0. This made a huge difference to my system. Note: I have found that fitting a Raid card is much faster than the Motherboard Raid. Get a decent one, I am using an Adaptec 2410SA like this http://www.adaptec.com/en-US/support...ta/AAR-2410SA/

    The information he/she gives is fine.

    However I could never get bootvis to "optimize" on my system. CCleaner is a great little utility it just rummages about your Hard drive looking for temp files and the like and offers you the option of deleting them.

    Also the msconfig tip is very handy and should be regularly carried out to keep an eye on what is and isn't loading at startup. I myself use msconfig to see what's loading but then go into the actual registry to delete them out.



    EDIT: Also I wouldn't really advocate the use of a "registry cleaner" as most of them do more harm than good, although there are a few good ones out there, namely CCleaner and RegCure.

    Also, I think two hard disks and raid cards are quite "hardcore". You can still get excellent performance from a good hard drive plugged into the Motherboard SATA 2 controller. Two hard disks, One small for the system and one large and fast one for the rest of your stuff/games.
    Western Digital Raptor/velociraptor are good system drives and Samsung spinpoint drives are good "stuff/games" drives.

    HTH.
