Default Computer Tweaks To A Faster Comp!


1.You could run a defragment of your computer which moves the files around and defrags them! Start/ All programs/ accecories/ system tools/ defragment

2.You could do a disk cleanup which compresses your old files and cleans out your temporary files and internet files which could slow your internet or pc down start/ all programs/ accecories/ system tools/ disk clean up

3.and if you have slow bootime you can download bootvis which will improve our boottime by more then 12 seconds you could download simply by going onto google and searching bootvis

4.And if you are logging on slowly try closing some program that open on startup for a faster startup go start/ all program/ startup/ and dealete all the files in the section you dont want to open on startup or you could try start/ run/ msconfig then startup uncheck the boxes you dont use regularly and can open by clicking on the icon or going to start saves time when you logging on!
If you want some more info go here there are many more tips on how to improve system performace and internet speed and even folder browsing[/url]

can someone move this to the windows tips & tricks section?

Nothing hardware-ish here.

Just another newbie at the moment.

It would be a good post if it was in a different section. If your in the overclocking section you shouldn't need those tips. Newbies could benefit from it though.

Good post, I did not know about the disk cleanup, the rest I knew about, but what does bootvis do, is it safe to put on the computer?
