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.

2. Possibly you are infected with malwares. It is a must that you should install antivirus for your PC protection.
3.Too much software installed but they might not be run for a long period of time that will affect the performance of your PC, uninstalling softwares that you are not using may utelize your machine running time.

Some helpful tips to maintain your PC.
1. Delete temporary files,internet history files
2. Always empty your recycle bin
3. Perform disk cleanup,click start,programs,accessories,ssytem tools,disk cleanup
4. Disable unnecessary programs during start up. Click start menu, click Run.type msconfig, from the dialog box click startup then uncheck those programs that are not necessary to run during boot process. Click Services button, uncheck the softwares previously been deleted from the control panel

Hi,
firts of all you need at least 2 Gig of memory in your computer, and have you got Service pack 1 installed, click on start on bottom of task barm then control panel, then system, and up the top it will tell you what edition of windows vista you are using, also I would recommend doing defrag regular, also when you have your web browser open on the bar it will display toolsm click on it, and open internet options and delete browsing history as that also helps, but the 2 main factors here are memory, and defrag that will affect system performance, I would also download Firefox as that is a far better browser then Internet Explorer, as well as faster!

I hope this solve helpps you out?

3 minite and above take for laptop booting © problem


Here are some things you can do that will boost your performance back to normal.
First, go into Start>All programs>system tools and run Disk Cleanup. This will get rid of all of the junk like *.tmp files that has built up. Second, in the same place after you run DiskCleanup run Defrag. This will take care of all the gaps on your hard drive so data can be found more easily. Finally you need some more RAM. 1GB these days with all the intensive programs is minimal especially if you have a 250GB HDD. Means if you load that puppy up your access time will be very slow with only 1GB. All programs load into RAM when they run, so with only 1GB your system has to constantly keep going back and forth to your hard drive to get code and that makes it very slow. Hope this helps and thanks for using FixYa. If you have any problems let me know.
