My System Specs


I already backed them up but for some stupid reason it never worked on my system -_- I will back them up again but I'm pretty sure that this time again it will fail. Maybe changing HDD will help since it always been on my 640 backed on my tb green. We will see;)

TBH you dont have to do them all. I personally turn off defrag, move the pg file to a dif HDD, move FF temp files to ram, turn superfetch to work only on startup progs, turn off indexing and other itty bitty things but thats about it. :)
How do I "FF temp files to ram, turn superfetch to work only on startup progs"?

ok I figured out the ff ram one but the Superfetch to only work on startup programs I am not sure about

Its further down in the following posts. Post #2 of the dell mini thread linked above. ;)

" Open regedit.exe and browse down to the following key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Session Manager\Memory Management\PrefetchParameters

Find the EnablePrefetcher key on the right-hand pane, and change the value to one of these:

Disable Caching: 0
Cache Applications Only: 1
Cache Boot Files Only: 2
Cache Everything (default): 3"
