    SECTION 0 - PREREQUISITES

    Arrow Latest Drivers , Microsoft Windows Updates , DirectX package, .NET Framework 3.5 Packages etc

    HOW TO CREATE A REG FILE

    Arrow Ill be sharing many registry tweaks [ Laughing obvious ] , here , so if you dont know how to create a .REG file , here’s a quick guide

    If you have some registry text like this :
    Quote:
    tips n tricks bg quote header Speedup Vista to the Max !Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\luafv]
    “Start”=dword:00000004

    Create a New Text Document in Notepad or any other app u prefer and paste the above in it



    SECTION 1 - SPEED UP

    DISABLE USER ACCOUNT CONTROL

    • First of all lets start by disabling the most annoying ‘feature’ of Vista , UAC.

      Right Click on Command Promt and click on Run As Administrator
      and paste this command and hit enter
      Quote:

      Reboot and UAC wont bother you anymore


    SPEEDUP BOOT

    • UAC DISABLED? SPEEDUP BOOT

      If you choose to disable UAC then you might have noticed [ or not ] bit of slowdown in your boot time , this is because the UAC driver is still loaded during startup ,which is unnecessary and can be disable by doing this

    SPEEDUP BOOT ON A MULTICORE PROCESSOR

    Do you have a multi - core processor ? If so , you have another reason to smile about . Vista normally uses only 1 core at boot time which makes the boot slightly slower , so here is how to make use of all the cores and speedup boot



    Start - Run - Type in msconfig - Boot - Advanced Options - Tick on Number of Processors - Select the maximum number [ that should be the number of processor cores ] - Click Ok - ok

    Wait! Dont close MSCONFIG Yet you'll need it for the next tweak

    SPEEDUP BOOT BY DISABLING BOOT SCREEN NO GUI BOOT

    • This will disable the usual vista boot screen and speed up boot by a few seconds , also this enables a better boot screen
      Caution ; Your Scheduled boot time defrags and disk checks will be cancelled or they will run with a black screen - you cannot see the progress

      Start - Run - Type in msconfig - Boot
      Check No GUI Boot
      Check on Make All Boot Settings Permanent

      Reboot if u want to see the effects immediately
