Hey guys i was wondering how many ways there are to speed up a vista PC without putting it in too much danger but chaging registry details and shizzle.

my vista PC is very fast when it is all loaded but when booting up it takes quite a while and i have checked all start programs and i am pretty sure i havent got a virus.

Thanks in advance :huh:

Better try using TuneUp Utilities 2009.
It helped boost my Vista performance by almost 25%. (Basing on the performance of my PC).

But I think there are still other softwares available out there.

Hey guys, if I might add: do not disable the Readyboost service. Even if you're not using Readyboost to utilize a flash device as ram, another function of the service is to optimize the bootup time of the system.

The same goes for SuperFetch, it eats loads of ram, but releases it when it's needed, and when the programs you use most are preloaded into memory it really boosts performance :huh: . My games now load faster in Vista than they do in XP Pro (tweaked XP pro with only 12 background processes compared to Vista with approximately 42).
