Speeding Up Vista

ExtremeTech has one of the first articles on how to make Windows Vista move faster.  Although they state at the beginning that Vista is pretty streamlined out of the box, they provide additional ideas and instructions:

  • Keep drivers up to date
  • Uncheck Windows features that are not needed; this is not the same thing as uninstalling
  • Check list of services and configure as many as possible as “Manual”
  • Disable unnecessary applets that run in the background
  • Enable ReadyBoost to use a flash drive as additional virtual memory
  • Tweak the user interface called Aero
  • Defrag
