Top 10 Tips to Speed up ur Windows Vista !

2. Turn off Remote Differential
Remote Differential measures the changes in files over a network to transfer them with minimal bandwidth rather than transferring an entire file that has previously been moved. By constantly checking for file changes, this service can hinder system .

To disable this service:

* Open Control Panel
* Switch to Classic View
* Select Program Features
* Choose Turn features on and off
* Scroll down and uncheck Remote Differential

3. Turn off Automatic Operation
real-time protection against malware continues to run despite having Automatic operation disabled.
To disable this feature:

* Open Control Panel
* Select
* Choose Tools from the top menu
* Select Options
* Uncheck Auto Start at the bottom of the window

4. Turn off Automatic
Vista and its always-on defragment feature isn’t really that necessary and can cause system slow down. Just remember to run a manually every week or so.

To disable this:

* Click Start then Computer
* Right Click the C: Drive
* Select the Tools Tab
* Uncheck Run on a schedule

5. Add a 2GB or higher USB Flash drive to take advantage of Ready Boost (Additional Cache)
Ready Boost is Microsoft’s name for using a USB thumb/flash drive to provide some quick access the operating system can use as extra RAM. The Ready Boost system can significantly improve system .

To set this up:

* Insert a USB Flash Drive (preferably 2GB or more)
* Click Start then Computer
* Right Click the USB Drive in My Computer
* Select the Ready Boost Tab
* Choose Use this device
* Select as much space as you can free up for RAM usage vs. Storage

6. Turn off
background services can use a large amount of system resources. If you don’t use the Hibernate feature on a regular basis you may want to disable it to give Vista a boost.
To disable :

* Select the Control Panel then Power Options
* Click Change Plan
* Click on Change Advanced Power
* Expand the Sleep selection
* Expand the Hibernate After selection
* Crank the selector down to zero
* Click Apply

7. Turn off System Restore
Analysis and restore point creation by Vista can eat a fair amount of system resources. Disabling this service will obviously mean the system restore feature in Vista will not be available in the event of a system crash. Change this at your own risk.

* Control Panel>System
* Click System Protection on the left panel
* Uncheck the main system drive
* Agree to the confirmation

8. Disable User Access Control (UAC)
This much-loathed new Vista feature attempts to protect your system from malware infection by making you manually confirm a whole host of everyday user operations. While it doesn’t directly impact , it can be annoying and might be more hassle than good.

To disable User Access Control:

* Click Start then Control Panel
* Select User Accounts
* Select Turn on or off
* Uncheck Box
* Restart as recommended

9. Disable excess Services that Auto-Launch at
Just like XP, Vista ships with all kinds of services enabled that load at and may never be used by most users.
To see what loads at and disable the ones you likely won’t be needing (they can always be started manually later):

* Click Start then Control Panel
* Select Administrative Tools
* Choose System Configuration
* Click the Services Tab
* You can safely deselect:
- Offline Files (unless you’re using Offline File Sync)
- Tablet PC Input Service (unless you have a tablet PC)
- Terminal Services
- Search (If you have already disabled )
- Fax (unless you’re using a fax modem)

10. Disable Excess Features
ships with other features that are listed separately in the Vista operating system from the services.
You can view and disable these features by:

* Clicking Start then Control Panel
* Select Program Features
* On the left panel, select Turn Features on or off
* You can safely deselect:
- Service
- Remote Differential
- Tablet PC Optional Components
- DFS Replication Service
- Fax & Scan (unless you use a modem for faxing)
- Meeting Space (unless you use the Live Meeting Service)
