    What are The 3 Best XP Tweaks
    for U?

    There are soooooo many but...
    for me they are;

    1. Disabling Services Tweak - from here : http://www.blackviper.com/WinXP/servicecfg.htm

    2. Turn off Indexing to speed up XP
    (because there there are better *& faster search programs eg. X1)
    Windows XP keeps a record of all files on the hard disk so when you do a search on the hard drive it is faster. There is a downside to this and because the computer has to index all files, it will slow down normal file commands like open, close, etc. If you do not do a whole lot of searches on your hard drive then I suggest turnning this feature off:
    1. Open my computer
    2. Right click your hard drive icon and select properties.
    3. At the bottom of the window you'll see "Allow indexing service to index this disk for faster searches," uncheck this and click ok.
    4. A new window will pop up and select apply to all folders and subfolders. It will take a minute or two for the changes to take affect but then you should enjoy slightly faster performance.

    3. Increasing XP shutdown speed
    By editing these settings and changing them to lower values, you can considerably decrease the amount of time that Windows XP needs to successfully shut itself down. The first part of this tweak deals with setting the amount of time Windows will take to kill open applications on shutdown.

    Open REGEDIT and navigate to 'HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\'
    Highlight the 'WaitToKillAppTimeout' value.
    Set it to '1000' (the default should be 20000).
    Now highlight the 'HungAppTimeout' value
    Set it to '1000' also.

    Open REGEDIT and navigate to 'HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop'
    Highlight the 'WaitToKillAppTimeout' value.
    Set it to '1000' (the default should be 20000).
    Now highlight the 'HungAppTimeout' value.
    Set it to '1000' also.

    Open REGEDIT and navigate to 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\'
    Highlight the value 'WaitToKillServiceTimeout'
    Change this value to '1000.'

    does turning off the indexing affect searches in anyway apart from slowing it down?

    and the shut down...does this have adverse affects on some programs?
    Shut that cunt’s mouth or I’ll come over there and fuckstart her head.

    try it and test the difference for me i saw no difference - its an easy 1sec tweak.
    I use X1 to search files, super fast

    I f you havent saved it will kill the prog in a second and you loose your unsaved stuff- but if your shutting down - you should have already done so. thats it.

    that shutdown one is very handy. some programs on my coputer never want to close for some reason, i think mostly my keyboard driver. so that shutdown tweak fixes it.

    the services tweaks are good. especially system restore.


    can't think of a third.
