Tip & How-To about Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition
a great tip to speed up your browsing of Windows XP
machines. Its actually a fix to a bug installed as
default in Windows 2000 that scans shared files for
Scheduled Tasks. And it turns out that you can experience
a delay as long as 30 seconds when you try to view
shared files across a network because Windows 2000
is using the extra time to search the remote computer
for any Scheduled Tasks. Note that though the fix
is originally intended for only those affected, Windows
2000 users will experience that the actual browsing
speed of both the Internet & Windows Explorers
improve significantly after applying it since it doesn't
search for Scheduled Tasks anymore. Here's how :
Open up the Registry and go to :
Under that branch, select the key :
and delete it.
This is key that instructs Windows to search for Scheduled Tasks. If you like you may want to export the exact branch so that you can restore the key if necessary.
This fix is so effective that it doesn't require a reboot and you can almost immediately determine yourself how much it speeds up your browsing processes.
