Windows XP optimization

These are some of the tweaks that I do to speed up my Windoze:

- Display Properties > Themes > Windows Classic Theme

- System Properties > Advanced > Performance > Adjust for best performance

- System Properties > System Restore > Turn off

- Disable File Indexing: From My Computer > right-click on the C: Drive > select Properties. Uncheck "Allow Indexing Service to index this disk for fast file searching." Apply changes to "C: sub folders and files," and click OK.

- Clean Up Prefetch, temp, and cache files: Download CleanUp!

- If VM, turn off Screen Saver. If VMWare, install VMWare Tools.

- Defrag disks.
