Does anybody know ways to make Windows run faster? (Especially Windows Me)

Any help would be appreciated!  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Defrag the hard drive


Take out all useless crap that starts up in the little task bar that holds the clock. (I.E. Real Player, Winamp)

Buy more memory - you can get a 128mb stick for about 40 to 60 bucks.

Hey,

There is a software program that is the best I have seen. It is called Fix-It. Go over to www.ontrack.com

They are the makers of this software. It is wonderful becasue it does everything you want it to do. I got about a 20% boost in preformance.
Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, Staten, Uptown, what now? Lets make it happen.

Windows 2000 Professional is slower on my machine than w98.

The absolute best way to accelerate a windows machine is to take it to the top floor, and chuck it out the window.
(Works for macs too.)

Re-boot the computer as much as you can. This will free up many of the system resources that have been bogged down.

ctrl+alt+del and close all of the programs but explorer and systray.

Hope that helps.

Start->Run->msconfig

I guess this is the way in english, there you can choose to not start some things with windows, but anyway windows is shit, when you start win, it automatic starts all microsoft softwares you may have on your pc, this way they run faster.
Windows will never be fast too 'coz Bill Gates when doing this shit used the same interupts on motherboard that intel had already used, yeah, with dozens interupts to choose he managed to choose the 4 intel interupts.

"it automatic starts all microsoft softwares you may have on your pc, this way they run faster. "

When I load Windows, my Microsoft Games, Programing, & Office do not load on start up. I also have both Netscape and IE 5.5 and it takes Netscape less time to load if I were to run one!



"Windows will never be fast too 'coz Bill Gates when doing this shit used the same interupts on motherboard that intel had already used, yeah, with dozens interupts to choose he managed to choose the 4 intel interupts. "

And I really don't think Bill Gates has programed since the early 90's if that!
