Do you find that your computers are running slower and slower? Most may choose to re-install their systems, and to re-install a large number of applications as well, which cost a lot of time and energy. In fact, it is unnecessary to do so much tough work. Here are some tips for you to speed up your computer without re-installing your system.

First, shut down the special effect in your system properties.

Click "Start"> "Panel Control" > "Performance and Maintenance" >"System" > "Advance" > "Performance" > "Setting", in the "visual effect", you can choose "best performance" then click "OK". This is the easiest way that can speed up computer as well as improve your interface.

In the following two methods, you need to open the "Registry Editor".

Click "Start" > "Run", type "regedit" and you can enter into the "Registry Editor".

Second, accelerate the startup of your system.
In the "Registry Editor", try to find out HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/CurrentControlSet/Control/SessionManager/Memory Management/PrefetchParameters, and then change the value from 3 to 1 so that it takes less time for scroll bar to work.

Third, speed up shutting down your computer.
It takes a lot of time to shut down your Windows XP, but if you follow the steps to
Also in the "Registry Editor", find HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Control Panel/Desktop. In the right window, find "WaitTOKillAppTimeout" and change its value to 1000, which means you just need one second to shut down the application.

And, when encountering "error program" and hard to close down some stop-responding applications automatically, you can also handle them in the HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Control Panel/Desktop in the "Registry Editor".
a. You can change "HungAppTimeout" to 200 which mean you need to wait for half of a second when the system appears "error program".
b. You can change "AutoEndTasks" to 1 so that the system may shut down the application which stops responding.
