    NT Kernel & System (Resource Monitor)

    Not that this is too big of a deal but I noticed that for about five to ten
    minutes after Vist starts The NT Kernal & System listing in the Resource
    Manager maxes out my CPU, then every once in a while after that. I'm not a
    techy person so can anyone tell me why this is happening?

    Behind Vistas shiny new Interface there are running hundreds of hidden tasks
    and services.

    Tablet-PC input service is running, expecting any minute you could use a pen
    instead of a mouse, regardless that your PC most likely is no Tablet, but a
    normal Laptop or PC..

    Time-Synchronizers,Windows Defender scanning the content of the Data in RAM
    and of course the Desktop Search and it is indexing all your folders
    silently, the same appplies to the Defrag Utility that now starts regulary
    hidden behind the scenes and is arranging data on your disk.

    Performance-indicator for all OS componebts are measuring data, the NT
    system itself is logging what the hell and you have assitants to report
    errors , solve Problems and the like.

    Also the new Superfetch loads you allday used programs into the RAM of your
    machine, regardless if you intend to use them..

    Solution : buy more RAM ( with more than 2 GB it is ok to have all
    running )and a even faster Cpu than the recommended 1 GhZ

    and/ or get used to NT-services and how to configure the Defaults to your
    personal needs ( I could deactivate over a dozen for me ), learn how to
    tweak Vistas Resource hunger down by disabling some of those stuff.

    At MS Website there is a tool exctrlst.exe which lets you disable the
    performance-ghosts running all time.

    With Tweakvi ( freeware) you can do great "magic" to performance

    the rest is handwork.. like I said - NT-Serives, but that needs a bit
    knowledge in what is safe to disable and what not.

    to see things speed up instantly - do right click "Computer", go "advanced
    Options" and tell Vista to "best perfomrance" . this will disable the new UI
    and trim the Optics to what shall resemble Windows 95 look, that safes the
    first 50 or so MB in RAM ..

    Windows - Search you can set in folder options to not use the index, but let
    search file-names alone, that speeds up also and makes the running index
    service obsolete.

    Every "disablement" of course has its pros and cons..

    You just bought a new Windows only to reduce its power and let it look like
    a ten year old OS.. anyhow that is the only way for slower Pcs now.

    regards
