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.
You can reduce the amount of time that Windows XP waits for those applications and
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.   

Memory Tweak
1. Start Registry Editor (Regedit.exe) and locate the following key in the registry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SessionManager\
MemoryManagement\PrefetchParameters
2.On the EnablePrefetcher value, change the setting from 3 to 5 (decimal).
3. Close the registry editor and restart your computer    Apart from this delete temp,%temp%,prefetch and increase virtual memory.

YOU MAY NEED TO UPGRADE YOUR MEMORY BUT 2000 PRO CAN RUN ON VERY SMALL AMOUNTS OF RAM.I THINK THAT YOU MAY HAVE A HARDWARE PROBLEM POSSIBLY A DISK OR MAYBE EVEN A BAD STICK OF RAM INSTALLED.COULD ALSO BE AN VIRUS OR INFECTION OF SOME SORTS.10 MINUTES IS AN ETERNITY FOR 2000 TO BOOT UP.IT SHOULD ONLY TAKE AT THE MAX A COUPLE OF MINUTES OR LESS.IF YOU HAVE THE INSTALL DISK,I SUGGEST RE-INSTALLING 2000 AGAIN AND SEE IF THAT SOLVES THE PROBLEM.YOU MAY HAVE CRITICAL FILES MISSING OR CORRUPTED THAT ARE CRIPPLING THE BOOT PROCESS OF WINDOWS 2000 AT START-UP.

12.0 MB for an excel file is HUGE! That in and of itself is the problem and would slow down most computers. Nothing is wrong.

Upgrade to SP4 for Win2k take too long.


Your system specifications are very low for service pack 4.
How ever, a solution would be to reinstall your Operating System (OS), then install Service pack 4 before installing any other programs.

Remember to back up all your data before you reinstall your OS

YOUR MENUS LOAD FASTER


This is one of my favorite tweaks as it makes a huge difference to how
fast your machine will 'feel'. What this tweak does is remove the slight
delay between clicking on a menu and XP displaying the menu.

Go to Start then Run
Type 'Regedit' then click 'Ok'
Find "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\"
Select "MenuShowDelay"
Right click and select "Modify'
Reduce the number to around "100"
This is the delay time before a menu is opened. You can set it to "0" but
it can make windows really hard to use as menus will open if you just look
at them - well move your mouse over them anyway. I tend to go for anywhere
between 50-150 depending on my mood.

How to improve my internet speed


hi Prem,

If you are using 256 Kbps broadband and you have installed 10 PC in ur network with Star topology then i dont think it shold be creating the problem. Star topology holds best compatibility in a small network.

The Problem would be causing because of your network card.
Network Card (NIC) plays most important role in ur network for transmitting and receiving data efficiently and fastly.

So you would need to check out for ur NIC card first i.e what catagory of NIC are u using?

You need to upgrade ur NIC in the server and also in ur client's PC.

Different catagory of NICs are-
1. 10 Mbps
2. 10/100 Mbps
3. 100 Mbps
It is recommended to use 100 Mbps NIC card for best performance in ur network. This will surely improve your net speed.

Another cause of ur slow speed is your broadband speed. If you have Cyber Cafe then you should upgrade with atleast of 512 Kbps of broadband speed in your network for better performance.
And use a good broadband service provider who are using good spectrum and bandwidth.
Like - Reliance, Airtel, Sify etc. (for India Only)

The given solution will defenately help you to improve your Network. e-mail me you acknowledgement on - rock_65@hotmail.com.
