Make your system run faster-3


Control What Runs in the BackgroundCaveatAn absolutely essential prerequisite is the absence of malware and adware. Unless a machine is free of these pests, there is no point in discussing other performance topics. Also, make no system changes unless you know how to undo themWhat background processes areThe computer is always carrying out processes that are not visible as programs on the Desktop or the Taskbar. They come both from application software and from Windows. They are not overtly obvious and are said to run in the background. Many of them are essential functions but some may be useless (or even harmful if malware is involved).The problemThe typical home PC today is likely to be stuffed with background programs and services. Windows XP is quite good at handling a lot of simultaneous processes but too many can consume enough resources to noticeably affect system performance. Also, some programs are poorly written or consume so many resources (Norton SystemWorks comes to mind) that by themselves they create a problem.Where unnecessary background processes come fromThere are several sources.
  • It is all too common for software companies to pile on a lot of unnecessary features that load into the background at startup.
  • Even Windows XP has a default configuration that loads a lot of services that typical home users do not need or use.
  • In today's climate a substantial amount of protection against malware and crackers is required. This involves several programs running in the background. These programs are often resource-intensive and require careful configuration. They may conflict with one another if default settings are used. For example, it is easy to end up with three different programs checking your email attachments. Personally, I prevent a lot of functions from running automatically and instead use a regularly scheduled manual routine.
SolutionsAs mentioned on the previous page, the measures to take are covered in great detail on pages elsewhere on this site. How to use the Windows System Configuration Utility (Msconfig) and the Services Console to control both programs and services is discussed. There is also some excellent freeware to help manage what runs in the background and one program, WinPatrol, is evaluated here. Below is a table showing examples of some services that might be unnecessary. Others are given in the references above. Some Candidates for Unnecessary Services Computer Browser Keeps track of the other computers on your network Error Reporting Service Reports failures of applications directly to Microsoft Fast User Switching To switch to other users on the same system without logging off Indexing Service Creates a searchable database of hard drive Messenger To send text popup messages to computers on the network Remote Registry For remote connection to the Registry Terminal Services Allows users to connect to the computer with remote desktop Wireless Zero Configuration Configures wireless 802.11 devices Configure Windows XPSome basic tweaks that help performance are discussed on another page in a previous article. Many tweaks are given in the references listed there and in the previous page. Some examples are:
Use Windows more efficientlySome basic ways to make using Windows more effective and more suited to personal needs are discussed in a series of pages on "Windows Your Way".

I want to change my desktop background. .what is the easiest and safest site to go to for reat pictures?


Right click your mouse on an empty area of the desktop. A small menu will appear.
  1. Click on Properties [This will be Personalize on Windows Vista or Windows 7] to open the Display Properties screen window.
  2. 3Select the Desktop tab, if using Windows XP. Windows 98 users can select the Background tab.
  3. 4Choose a background. On the lower left half of the Display Properties Window, you will see Background (Win XP) or Wallpaper (Win 98). You can choose a background from the long menu list by clicking on the background/wallpaper design you want.
  4. 5Select a position. Stretch is generally the best choice but if the image you have selected is of a low resolution or an aspect ratio different from your monitor's, then Center or Tile will work best.
  5. 6Click OK to close the Display Properties Window.

Can't get pass the background screen when pc load


The sequence is:
a) The Dell bios splash screen is displayed,
b) the screen will go black,
c) the disk activity light will flash for about 5 - 7 seconds, then will remain off.
d) you force a power off,
e) wait a few seconds,
f) then turn the machine back on.
g) The bios splash screen is displayed,
h) then a black screen with white text is displayed, reporting that Windows was not shut down nicely and would I like to boot into safe mode or safe mode with networking, or others.
g1) If you choose Safe Mode, Windows will boot up successfully. If I restart, the computer will usually (probably) boot into Windows fine.
g2) If you choose Boot Normally, the computer will usually (probably) enter the black and hung state.
see if that helps and the if possible do a do a system restore to when the system was working correctly.
