Software to speed up computer? - Page 5

my advice, dont install anything, in fact, FORMAT, it runs exactly like it did when you first got it, and then delete any bloatware and disable bad startup services

then reconsider what your putting on there, avoid (disclaimer, this might result in less net security)
1, ANY type of antivirus will slow you down, so i don't use one, but i would not recommend this,
2, any constantly running graphics, ie rainmeter, regardless of how cool it looks
3, EMAIL CLIENTS, big, useless pigs in a system IMO, just go webmail, or outlook if you must
4, downloads of anything from free sources (may inject botware) without thoughtfully researching them first
5, Useless media apps installed by your printer, these things are evil

theres my advise of what not to install, also, if your running areo, turn it off to gain a bit of speed, ive switched to classic theme several times too, i like the retro look, reminds me of my first pc

Otherwise, another vote for Ccleaner.
You should disable services but you shouldn't use Msconfig (or at least thats what I've read).
The best way, and the way I have done it is to go
->run
->services.msc
-> now use a website like black viper or another website that explains what each service does and right click it
-> either select manual or off from the drop down box.


Option number 2

Vlite


I really don't reccomend programs like game booster. I much prefer to do things myself so I know exactly whats being disabled etc...

That may be true, but I have seen no indication of it.
If it is true Win 7 does a downright crappy job of it.
I load up Defraggler from time to time and lo and behold ive got some pretty hefty fragmentation.
