Hello,

I looked in System Configuration on my W7 Ultimate.....There are 80 systems running. Which ones can I shut off to make my pc run faster with W7 and not mess it up. This is just after I rebooted I didn't have anything open yet. Thanks

best left alone,but some could be set to manual and if you do alter any don't do it in msconfig ,do it in control panel /admin tools /services ,try adding more ram if needed ,or try editing the programs that start up when computer boots ,check startup ,post a snapshot of that,

Don't use msconfig to make permanent changes to startup processes. Download and use an app such as Mike Lin's Startup Control Panel (http://www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml) or Sysinternals' Autoruns (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb963902) to manage startup items.

1) I agree with both posts above

2) If you still want to mess with the configuration, look here: http://www.blackviper.com/category/guides/windows-7/

Great thanks for the info. I have 12gb's or patriot DDR3 triple ram 1600mhz. Should I get more? Is it even worth messing with these systems to get better performance? Maybe I will just change some stuff on the start up only. I will be getting a 250gb SSD drive soon. I think this will help on my i7 970 system.

Are you having any specific problems with the system? If not, leave well enough alone. Messing around is more like to cause problems than solve them.
