Default Placing the XP Kernel into RAM

Well, I finally found the registry tweak i have been looking for. It is from a different source, but here it is...

Quote:
Placing the XP Kernel into RAM is quicker than allowing it to page.

If you system has more than 256MB of RAM, then you should try this tweak. In theory, the kernel (and thus XP) should run faster if it kept in RAM instead of the slower page memory.

This involves editing the registry so make a registry backup before trying this.

Navigate to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Session Manager\Memory Management\DisablePagingExecutive

Setting the value to 1 will prevent the kernel from using slower page memory.

Changing it back to the default value of 0 will return your system back to normal.

Remember that registry changes require reboot before you will see their effects.

I have been running this tweak for over a year now. It really helped me speed wise, way back then.

I think I originally found it in a tech magazine, but I can't remember which one.

Anyway, enjoy!
