    Same as any OS, disable stuff you don't need, and I've heard SP1 helps
    quite a lot as well. (I haven't installed it yet, going to tonight)

    yes, there is all you need to do, is make a robot with legs and put your
    computer which has vista on the robot, other than that, not a lot will make
    it go faster.

    altho some advice, disable everything you don't need, everytime i buy a
    computer with vista, i disable "windows sidebar". in my opinion that is the
    biggest cpu and ram hogger. and i also disable programs that i don't use
    often which was pre-installed when i bought it, since when you run them,
    they usually load all it needs to work properly, the only thing those icons
    near the clock do, other than slow down your pc, is make the program load
    faster, but if you don't need them often then disabling them is better.

    also, if you look in windows taskbar and look under processes you might see
    some programs which aren't showing in the taskbar icons, for example:
    windows media player likes to hide there sometimes, i always take a peek
    into taskbar manager so that no unnecesary programs are running.

    use classic menus, turn off all the special effects
    I set to 'adjust for best performance' and let windows manage the virtual
    memory.
    using a fixed sized cache isn't good IMHO.

    Deframenting speeds up the system dramatically, BUT using the default defragmenter doesn't defrag file fragments bigger than 64MB or even include them in the fragmentation statistics

    When you have file fragments for one program scattered all over your hard drive, it takes time to recompile them in order to execute the program/data in question. Consolidating all file fragments regardless of their size will result in faster access and execution. Now multiply this by hundreds of thousands of individual file fragments that the cpu must recompile to execute in proper sequence per Windows or User command at the same time. I have seen the GUI show 0% fragmentation where the -w command will show 10% fragmentation on a 640GB SATA RAID 0 drive- thats alot of little individual file fragments scattered over a modest size drive...

    But this is only part of the problem, now add into the equation file system errors and bad sectors on the disk...and even the fastest system will slow to a crawl over time.

    I strongly recommend not using registry cleaners-unless you know what you are doing-otherwise, chances are very good that the Corruption it may cause will require Windows re-install to fix.

    Here are two steps to a faster, better performing system.
    note- these steps will perform a full defrag (defrag c: -w), and will fix file system errors and attempt recovery of bad disk sectors.
