1 Tips & Tricks! on Wed Apr 08, 2009 8:17 pm


1> Shutdown XP Faster

Follow the following steps to do so:

1) Start - Run - Regedit

Navigate to the following Registry key:

HKEY CURRENT USER\Control Panel\Desktop

Double click on the AutoEndTasks entry and replace the 0 with a 1 in the Value data text box

For the next two, if the dword value indicated does not exist, create it:

Double click on the WaitToKillAppTimeout entry in the right pane and change the Value data to 2000

Double click on the HungAppTimeout entry in the right pane and change the Value data to 1000


If still having a problem, make the next change:

2) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control
Right-click on WaitToKillServiceTimeout and change it to 2000

NOTE: The lowest value will recognize is 1000 (1 second)

2> Remove StartUp Item.

Having programs run when window loads slows down your start.

There are two ways do disable programs that may be in your startup (like icq, messenger,)

The easiest is to do the following:

1. start --> run --> msconfig
2. Click on the "startup" tab (furthest right)\
3. Unclick any items you don't want to load when windows starts.

The second is by deleting registry entrys, this can be done the following way:

1. Start --> run --> regedit
2. Navigate to : HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

3. Delete any entry's that you don't want to load up

Deleting keys from the registry will not allow you to set them to startup again if you change your mind.
note: Since you always create backup files, when editing the
registry,(don't you?), you can restore these, in case you change your
mind. Have Fun..

3> Memory Performance Increasing

These Settings will fine tune your system memory

management -at least 512MB of ram recommended

go to start\run\regedit -and then to the following key

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management

-double click it and in the decimal put a 1 - this allows XP to keep
data in memory now instead of paging sections of ram to harddrive
yeilds faster performance.

2.LargeSystemCache- double click
it and change the decimal to 1 -this allows XP Kernel to Run in memory
improves system performance alot

Reboot and watch your system fly ..happy trickin

Warning: This trick may cause problems with ATI cards

4 > Performance Increase.

Services are programs that run when the computer starts up and continue
to run as they aid the operating system functionality. There are many
services that load and are not needed which take up memory space and
CPU time. Disabling these services will free up system resources which
will speed up your overall computer experience. I recommend that you
sort through the list and read the descriptions to decide if you need
that service depending on what you want to do with your computer.
Remember, you can always turn the service back on if you find that you
need it in the future. Below is the procedure to turn off a service.

1. Click the start button.

2. Select run from the bottom of the right column.

3. Then type services.msc in the box and click ok.

4. Once the services window has loaded we are ready to turn off unneeded services.

5. For instructional purposes we are going to turn off the Portable Media Serial Number service.

6. Find this service in the list and select it with the mouse.

7. Right click and select Properties.

8. Once the properties windows has loaded locate the Start up type drop down box and select disable.

9. Then just click ok and the next time the computer starts the service will not be loaded.
