Speed Up Windows 7 Using Ready Boost

                              Windows ReadyBoost allows you to add a non-volatile USB 2.0 flash memory drive to improve memory performance on systems that have less than 1GB of memory. This is is a great feature to use if you have a computer that is difficult to upgrade the random access memory (RAM) like a the new and very popular MINI computers on the market.

                           Windows 7 ReadyBoost is very easy to use. Once you add a USB flash drive to your computer Windows 7 checks to see if the performance is fast enough to work with Windows ReadyBoost. If so, you are asked if you would like to use this drive to speed up Windows 7 system performance. You can choose to use all of the Universal Serial Bus (USB) drive or part of it.

Disable Hibernation to Save Hard Drive Space





                When a computer is put on the hibernation mode, the computer takes a snapshot of all the memory contents and the computer settings and saves all this information on the hard disk of the computer. After the information is saved, the computer turns off. The advantage of putting the computer on the hibernation mode is that when the computer is restarted all the memory contents and the settings are restored to the time when the computer was turned off. A great benefit of this is that there is no need for power by the computer to maintain itself in the hibernation state unlike the standby mode.
Sleep mode typically will store activity in RAM and then turn off the monitor or hard drive, but not the power to the computer. When the computer comes out of the hibernation mode all the programs and documents are restored. However, turning off hibernation mode can save a lot of disk space. The amount of space it will save depends on your pc, but it could save gigabytes worth of space.


5 Quick Tips to Speed Up Your PC's Slow Internet Connection




                  Nothing's more frustrating than a slow internet connection. Sadly, there's often not much that can be done about it. A page that's slow to load usually indicates something wrong with its server, not yours, and experts say that at times of heavy virus activity – with malicious programs leaping from one machine to another – the whole internet can feel like it's crashing down.


Nonetheless, while you obviously can't fix the whole internet, there are a few things you can do on your end to keep your connection going as fast as possible.

How to Automatically Clear Temp Files At StartUp



                                      Everybody don’t like junk. There are a lot of junk files created in Windows by default. The Disk Clean up Utility in Windows help us to remove the system Clutter upto certain extend. Disk Cleanup can also remove the outdated or older restore points being created by System Restore which we do not need any more. But there are many temporary files the Disk Clean up utility of Windows wont clean by default. We can configure it to clean up those unnecessary junk there by making more space available.

How to Automate Windows Update


Configure once

 

Microsoft works constantly to release updates to Windows and other Microsoft products, including Microsoft Office. With Windows Update, you can find and install all these updates—not just the critical ones. Often, these updates can improve your computer's performance.

You can make life easier by automating Windows Update so that your computer downloads and installs all the updates without you having to worry about them.

Rearrange Your Data

Run once a month

            Don't be shocked, but your computer can get sloppy. It often breaks files side by side to increase the speed of access and retrieval. However, as files are updated, your computer saves these updates on the largest space available on the hard drive, often found far away from the other adjacent sectors of the file.


The result: a fragmented file. Fragmented files cause slower performance. This is because your computer must now search for all of the file's parts. In other words, your computer knows where all the pieces are, but putting them back together in the correct order—when you need them—can slow your computer down.

Windows includes a Disk Defragmenter program to piece all your files back together again (if only Humpty Dumpty had been so lucky) and make them available to open more quickly.

Removing Temporary Files

Run once a week:

            Your computer can pick up and store temporary files when you're looking at web pages and even when you're working on files in programs, such as Microsoft Word. Over time, these files will slow your computer's performance. You can use the Windows Disk Cleanup screen to rid your computer of these deadbeat files.

Clean Up Disk Errors in Windows 7

Run once a week

                                 Whenever a program crashes or you experience some power outage, your computer may create errors on its hard disk. Over time, the errors can slow your computer. Luckily, the Windows operating system includes a Disk Check program to check and clean any errors on your computer and to help keep it running smoothly.


For Windows  7 User's:


1. Click the Start button, and then click Computer.

2. Right-click the hard disk drive that you want to check, and then click Properties.

3. Click the Tools tab, and then, under Error-checking, click Check now.







To automatically repair problems with files and folders that the scan detects, select Automatically fix file system errors. Otherwise, the disk check will simply report problems but not fix them.

To perform a thorough disk check, select Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors. This scan attempts to find and repair physical errors on the hard disk itself, and it can take much longer to complete.

To check for both file errors and physical errors, select both Automatically fix file system errors and Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors.



4. Click Start.

Depending upon the size of your hard disk, this may take several minutes. For best results, don't use your computer for any other tasks while it's checking for errors.

Note: If you select Automatically fix file system errors for a disk that is in use, you'll be prompted to reschedule the disk check for the next time you restart your computer.

Make Your Browser Work Fast

Don't save encrypted webpages:


            Encrypted webpages ask for usernames and passwords. These pages scramble information to prevent the reading of this sensitive information. You can define Internet Explorer to not save these types of pages. You'll free up space by saving fewer files to your computer, in addition to keeping secure information off of your computer.


To not save encrypted webpages:

1.      In Internet Explorer, on the Tools menu, click Internet Options.

2.      In the Internet Options dialog box, click the Advanced tab.

3.      In the Settings section, scroll down to the Security section. Select the Do not save encrypted pages to disk option, check box, as shown here. Click OK.

Make Internet Explorer run faster


                          The web is a sparkling achievement of modern society. It's everywhere—from the home to the classroom. We use it to communicate, to work, to play—even to waste time, when there's not a lot to do.

            Yet there's nothing more frustrating than having this technical marvel at our fingertips 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, only to wait as our computers access the Internet at a crawling pace. Thankfully, Windows Internet Explorer provides some useful options for quicker web surfing. Let's look at these options now.


Reduce the size of your web page history:

           
            Internet Explorer stores visited webpages to your computer, organizing them within a page history by day. Although it's useful to keep a couple days of web history within your computer, there's no need to store more than a week's worth. Any more than that and you're collecting webpages that will slow down your computer's performance.

Reduce Recycle Bin Maximum Size

This is set fairly high by default, around more than 10% which will affect your speed if your available disk space is less. So you can try to set that to 3%, there's really no need to set it higher than that.
How to Reduce Recycle Bin Size

For Windows XP:

1) Right click on the Recycle Bin icon on the Desktop.

2. Now Under Global in the Recycle Bin properties window, move the slider and click apply.

















For Windows 7:

1) Right click on the Recycle Bin icon on the Desktop.

2) Click on Properties option.

In Windows 7 you have to change the recycle bin capacity of each hard drive partition separately. In Windows 7 there isn’t any slider bar or percentage to set. In Windows 7 we have to enter a value which we want to use as the recycle bin storage limit.




3) Select the hard drive partition and under “Custom Size: Maximum Size (MB)” enter a value according to your choice. If you want to make it go unlimited i.e. full hard drive storage, just enter a large value higher than your hard drive partition capacity. It will automatically set the value to the hard drive partition capacity.

4) Once you’ve set the value, click on OK button.

5) In some computers the change will be instant and in some they will require a restart. But restart your computer in any case to be on a safe side as you did in Windows XP above.

Startup Optimization

Removing startup programs from Windows XP - the manual method

Manually removing Windows startup programs is relatively easy and straight-forward. Here’s a step-by-step tutorial showing you how to do it.

1. Once your computer’s desktop has loaded, click on the start button and then the “Run” button on the right side of the menu.


2. After you have clicked on “Run”, a new window should popup - type in “msconfig” without the quotes and hit the “Ok” button.


3. Yet another window will pop up - this is the System Configuration Utility. You’re going to want to click on the “Startup” tab on the far right side.

At this point, you’ll see the location where you can add or remove startup programs from your PC.You can see the Startup program name in the left column, the physical path to the file that is being executed when your computer boots up in the middle and the location within the registry where this command is stored in the right column.



4. When you have completed your removal of unnecessary startup entries, click on the “Apply” button and then “OK” at the bottom of the System Configuration Utility. You’ll have to reboot your PC for the changes to take effect.

3. In the Properties dialog box, click the Tools tab,












and then in the Defragmentation section, click Defragment Now….

4. In the Disk Defragmenter dialog box, select the Volume (most likely your Local Disk C:) at the top of the screen, and then click Analyze (disk).

5. After analyzing your computer, the Disk Defragmenter displays a message stating whether you should defragment your computer. Press Defragment (disk) to clean up your computer if necessary. The Disk Defragmenter will reorganize files by placing them together and sorting them by program and size, as shown here.
