Hello everyone!
 
Reading with different opinions about the shutdown or not superfetch service as well as paging files, leaving the Windows address, fixed values in minimum 2048 MB and 4096 MB maximum, others indicate a function in percentage of the amount of RAM installed. . .
 
In principle the options applied to Windows 8 / 8.1 would be applied to the other OS?
 
What other changes are proven to have brought,, improvements in Windows performance?
 
Grateful to all!

Hi DC3!
 
In fact, the question refers more information, not difficulties of performance, far from it.
 
Use Windows 7, and it is clean and super fast.
 
Grateful!

It's well established that Superfetch is effective and best left alone. The Superfetch service also does the boot optimization analysis that is used by defrag in both its normal file relocation strategy, and the idle time boot file optimization.

 

On a standard hard drive I leave the pagefile managed by Windows, on an SSD I set as small a fixed pagefile as I think the RAM size will accommodate. My main laptop with 8GB has never complained about a 1GB paging file with the modest work I do.

I appreciate and thank their placements!
