Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet

Make Windows XP smooth as Windows 7 part-2

Disable unnecessary services:

Some programs that launch at startup are invisible: they are services. There are dozens and some are useless. Both off, you can earn between 10 and 80 MB of RAM.
Click the Start button and then click Run. 

In the Open field, type the command services.msc then confirm with Enter. 

The services management console opens. To disable a service, double click it. 

In the window that opens, scroll down the Startup Type list and select Disabled. The service will no longer be started with Windows. 

Click the Stop button to stop it immediately. 

Finally, click OK. 

Here are some services you can disable: Remote Registry, Messenger, Help and Support, Support TCP / IP NetBIOS, Warning, Smart Card, Tracking Client Distributed Link, Secondary Logon, Network DDE, Windows Time, Performance Logs and Alerts, Automatic Updates Service Error Reporting ...

Stop System Restore:

System Restore, which is to take regular snapshots of your system to restore it if a problem is very resource-intensive and disk space. If you know what you do on your computer, you can disable it. Careful, it will clearly not be possible to create restore points manually or automatically, so no going back if something goes wrong.
Click the right mouse button on the My Computer icon on the desktop and choose the Properties command. 

Open the System Restore tab. 

Then check the box Turn off System Restore on all drives. 

Click OK and Yes to confirm the deactivation.
