    How to Force the CPU to Run at Full Speed Via the Registry

    As you continually install and uninstall programs, components of these programs will stay behind in your computer's registry system. The registry maintains important computer system data. Your computer needs the registry to function

    properly. The program components in the registry will accumulate and clog the files that contain the computer data, causing damage and corruption and slowing your

    CPU. If this happens, your computer may become very sluggish and lock up. If you want to have your CPU run at full speed, you will need to repair the registry. Free programs available for download will accomplish this task.

    How to Reduce CPU Usage in Windows XP

    [​IMG] Reducing CPU usage can speed up Windows XP. cpu image by Aussiebloke from Fotolia.com


    As you run more programs on your Windows XP computer, they are forced to compete for the available CPU power. If too many programs are trying to use the CPU at once, your computer may slow down because programs are having to wait for CPU time to be available before they can run. One way to speed up a slow Windows XP machine is to reduce CPU usage.
    Difficulty:Easy Instructions


      • 1 Ensure that your computer is free of malware. Run anti-spyware and anti-virus software. Remove any threats that the security software finds.
      • 2 Stop unneeded programs. Press the "Control," "Alt," and "Delete" keys at the same time. Select "Task Manager" from the screen that comes up. Click on the "Applications" tab. Choose running programs that you are not using and click the "End Task" button. Close all running programs that you are not using.
      • 3 Set your hard drive to work in DMA mode. Press the "Windows" key and the "Pause/Break" key at the same time to bring up the "System Properties" dialog. Click the "Hardware" tab and select "Device Manager." Click the plus sign next to "IDE ATA/ATAPI-Controller" and double-click on the controller. Select the "Driver" tab and click "Uninstall." Restart the system and allow Windows to reinstall the controller.
      • 4 Disable startup programs. Click "Start" and choose "Run." Enter the command "msconfig" without quotes. Select the "Startup" tab. Uncheck the boxes next to any programs you don't want to run at startup.


    Tips & Warnings


    • Make sure you know what programs you are stopping in the "Task Manager" or disabling from running at startup.
