    Hello friends, today i will share with you a collection of windows tweaks that will help you to achieve maximum system or PC speed. All want that their system will work as fast as possible so why always settle for normal things, now you are learning hacking and still using your PC or system like noobs or novice guys that really not fair. So lets spend 5 minutes and get best available throughput from your Operating system. Lets start that how to increase or boost your system or PC speed to new heights..

    In this article i will share the following tricks to increase system speed:

    1. Disable Autorun from all drives.
    2. Speed Up Browsing speed (explore optimization).
    3. Disable Indexing services.
    4. Optimize Display Settings.
    5. Speed up folder browsing.
    6. Disable Unnecessary Services.
    7. Remove annoying delete confirmation messages.

    Disable Autorun from all drives
    1. Go to START menu then go to RUN and type "gpedit.msc" (without quotes) and press enter.
    2. Now here you will see two things first is Computer configuration and second is user configuration, you to go to both one by one.
    3. First go to Computer Configuration then Go to Administrative Templates and then to System.
    4. Now find the Key "Turn off Autoplay". Double click on it. Now click on Enable and select all drive and click on apply. So for computer its done, now you need to do for your own Account.
    5. Second go to User Configuration --: Administrative Templates --: System --: And repeat the 4th step again.

    This will disable all the auto run from your system and also help you to prevent from USB and pen drive viruses.

    Speed Up Browsing speed (explore optimization)
    When you connect to a web site your computer sends information back and forth. Some of this information deals with resolving the site name to an IP address, the stuff that TCP/IP really deals with, not words. This is DNS information and is used so that you will not need to ask for the site location each and every time you visit the site. Although Windows XP and Windows XP have a pretty efficient DNS cache, you can increase its overall performance by increasing its size. You can do this with the registry entries below:

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Dnscache\Parameters]
    "CacheHashTableBucketSize"=dword:00000001
    "CacheHashTableSize"=dword:00000180
    "MaxCacheEntryTtlLimit"=dword:0000fa00
    "MaxSOACacheEntryTtlLimit"=dword:0000012d

    Make a new text file and rename it to dnscache.reg. Then copy and paste the above into it and save it. Merge it into the registry.

    Disable Indexing services
    Indexing Services is a small little program that uses large amounts of RAM and can often make a computer endlessly loud and noisy. This system process indexes and updates lists of all the files that are on your computer. It does this so that when you do a search for something on your computer, it will search faster by scanning the index lists. If you don't search your computer often, or even if you do search often, this system service is completely unnecessary. To disable do the following:
    1. Go to Start
    2. Click Settings
    3. Click Control Panel
    4. Double-click Add/Remove Programs
    5. Click the Add/Remove Window Components
    6. Uncheck the Indexing services and click on next.

    Optimize Display settings
    Windows XP can look sexy but displaying all the visual items can waste system resources.
    To optimize:
    1.Go to Start
    2. Click Settings
    3. Click Control Panel
    4. Click System
    5. Click Advanced tab
    6. In the Performance tab click Settings
    7. Leave only the following ticked:
    - Show shadows under menus
    - Show shadows under mouse pointer
    - Show translucent selection rectangle
    - Use drop shadows for icons labels on the desktop
    - Use visual styles on windows and button.

    Speed up Folder Browsing
    This one is already covered by windows SP2 and SP3. But still i will share.
    You may have noticed that everytime you open my computer to browse folders that there is a slight delay. This is because Windows XP automatically searches for network files and printers everytime you open Windows Explorer. To fix this and to increase browsing significantly:


    1. Open My Computer
    2. Click on Tools menu
    3. Click on Folder Options
    4. Click on the View tab.
    5. Uncheck the Automatically search for network folders and printers check box
    6. Click Apply
    7. Click Ok
    8. Reboot your computer

    Disable Unnecessary Services
    Because Windows XP has to be all things to all people it has many services running that take up system resources that you will never need. Below is a list of services that can be disabled on most machines:

    Alerter
    Clipbook
    Computer Browser
    Distributed Link Tracking Client
    Fast User Switching
    Help and Support - (If you use Windows Help and Support leave this enabled)
    Human Interface Access Devices
    Indexing Service
    IPSEC Services
    Messenger
    Netmeeting Remote Desktop Sharing (disabled for extra security)
    Portable Media Serial Number
    Remote Desktop Help Session Manager (disabled for extra security)
    Remote Procedure Call Locator
    Remote Registry (disabled for extra security)
    Remote Registry Service
    Secondary Logon
    Routing & Remote Access (disabled for extra security)
    Server
    SSDP Discovery Service - (Unplug n' Pray will disable this)
    Telnet
    TCP/IP NetBIOS Helper
    Upload Manager
    Universal Plug and Play Device Host
    Windows Time
    Wireless Zero Configuration (Do not disable if you use a wireless network)
    Workstation


    To disable these services:
    Go to Start and then Run and type "services.msc"
    Doubleclick on the service you want to change
    Change the startup type to 'Disable".

    Remove Annoying Delete Confirmation message
    Although not strictly a performance tweak I love this fix as it makes my machine 'feel' faster. I hate the annoying 'are you sure?' messages that XP displays, especially if I have to use a laptop touchpad to close them. To remove these messages:
    1. Right-click on the 'Recycle Bin' on the desktop and then click 'Properties'
    2. Clear the 'Display Delete Confirmation Dialog' check box and click 'Ok'


    If you do accidently delete a file don't worry as all is not lost. Just go to your Recycle Bin and 'Restore' the file.


    Thats all friends, now you have a smart PC with maximum acheived speed without altering RAM or other stuff.

    hizo keys nilizoandika andika hapo ni kutoka katika windows XP kwa hiyo zinaweza zikatofautiana na windows 7
