Every little helps - a small performance and stability boost
Here's a bit of information I remembered again which, although it will not make a BIG difference, will make your system somewhat faster and also more stable.
This involves going into the registry, so you have to do this EXACTLY because wrongly changing registry values can completely mess up your system.
There is a value called "DisablePagingExecutive" (I will describe how to get there below) and if this is set to "1" - and yes, "1" in hexadecimal is still "1" - then it does not allow kernel-mode drivers and kernel-mode system code to be paged to disk when not in use.
This has the following advantages with regard to performance and stability:
1) It improves performance, because it prevents disk reads to get paged code or data.
2) It improves stability, because all of the code and data is always memory resident.
How to get there:
1) Start Regedit
2) Go to the registry value "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management"
3) Modify the value of "DisablePagingExecutive" (which will be 0) to 1
You will have to reboot for the changes to take effect.
It's a freebie "overclock" which will not produce any extra heat in your system, let it run smoother, and make BSOD's less likely - what's not to like?
