How to Speed Up Windows 7 [Adjust Menu Show Delay and Application Timeout]

Ever wanted to make your Win7 faster when opening menus, or when ending an application processes. Here's a registry tweak on how to do that. But before that we should create a registry backup first in case you want to restore the original settings.

1. Start Type>REGEDIT then press enter. When prompted, just click "Yes".
2. On the File Menu click Import and then save it as "Regbackup.reg" to location you can easily access.
3. Close regedit
4. Go to Start>Click Notepad
5. Copy and paste the texts in between the * line to notepad.
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USERControl PanelDesktop]




[HKEY_USERSS-1-5-19Control PanelDesktop]

[HKEY_USERSS-1-5-20Control PanelDesktop]

3. Save file as "Speed7.reg". Save As Type to All Files and Set Encoding to Unicode. Click Save button.
4. Locate the file on your desktop double click to open it. Just click "Yes" whenever prompted. And you'll be prompted that is successful.
5. Finally, restart your PC.

Thanks & Regards,

slow process

Try setting the process priority to high. Press Ctrl+Shift+Esc to open task manager. Click Processes tab, right click on process that you want it run faster. Set priority to High and you are done. There are 6 priority levels for you to choose: Realtime, High, Above Normal, Normal, Below Normal and Low. For example, you might want to adjust your Nero to High level and see its running faster.

Of course, you can also tweak for other processes provided you know
what you are doing. Sometime, you want your game to run faster then
you can set your game.exe process to Realtime. In my case, I want my iPod Touch synchronize faster so I set high priority for iPodService.exe.

When you start to shut down Windows XP, it has to quit, or "kill," any live
applications or processes that are currently running. So close all applications first.
However, some applications and processes are always running in the background.

processes to close before Windows XP kills them.
1. Open registry editor
2. Navigate to HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop. Set the
WaitToKillAppTimeout and set the value to 1000. Select the HungAppTimeout
\newline value and set it to 1000 as well.
3. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control.
Select the WaitToKillServiceTimeout value and set it to 10000.
4. Close the Registry Editor.

slow start...

Hello there...

Keep in mind this
1) OS ?
2) How you format your HD. FAT32? or NTFS? how many times?
perhaps you got a bad sector on your HD.
3) verify your CMOS, if you enable 32 enhance mode.
4) Check if you do a quick format? or regular format (takes long)
example: on C: Format C:
5) Antivirus you got? Norton 360? Avg? this could sometimes slow down a bit the systems, and resourses.
6) Memory problems? check
7) Your pagefile? on advance setting in SYSTEM, control panel. put in ( let windows decide...)
thats it
happy nice time
