Hi guys,

 I'm looking for more tweaks for vista. I'v used Shane's simple performance boost program and performed the tweaks listed from this site as well. Iv performed some on my own. looking for that little bit extra. Keep in mind I want my computer to live.

Cleanmem, also turn off as many services as you don't need and turn off the damn aero. This will make the biggest hit.

The real way to speed up a system is to take as much load off the hard drive as possible. Every little bit helps as it all adds up. :wink:
