Ten tricks to improve your Windows Vista – Part one


If Windows Vista is working lousy don’t worry, apparently some people discovered some tricks that will help you run your Microsoft operating system at full speed. The advices aren’t very different from the ones on how to speed up XP, it basically still depends on “turning off the useless things”.

1. Turning off Windows Search Indexing

Windows Vista is indexing all the time the computer’s files in order to make them more accessible in case you look for them, a very useful option, but it’s affecting the performance of the system which is btw already tormented by the operating system.

In order to turn off the indexing you need to do this:

* Press the Start button and then Computer

* Right click on the C: driver

* In General Tab, clear Index this drive for a quicker search

* In the next box, select Include subfolders and files

2. Turning off the Remote Differential Compression

Remote Differential Compression is measuring the changes in the files from a network in order to be able to transfer them more efficiently and with bandwidth savings, instead of just transferring the whole file. Constantly checking for the changes in a file, this service can slow down the system.

In order to turn off this service do this:

* Open up Control Panel

* Switch to Classic View

* Select Program Features

* Choose Turn Windows features on and off

* Uncheck Remote Differential Compression from below

3. Turning off the Automatic Windows Defender Operation

Windows Defender offers real-time protection against malware, and continues to  run even if the Automatic operation has been turned off.

In order to turn off definitively this option do this:

* Open Control Panel

* Select Windows Defender

* Choose Tools from the menu above

* Select Options

* Uncheck Auto Start

4. Turning off Automatic Disk Defragmentation

This option that constantly defragments your disk drives is not really necessary and it can slow down the system. This way, you can turn it off, if you remember to defragment the disk yourself once a week.

To turn off this:

* Press the Start button and then Computer

* Right Click drive C:

* Select Tools

* Uncheck Run on a schedule box
