    Here is a "Registry-Patch" i wrote to speedup Vista 32bit Ultimate...I
    should work on all Vistas ( same type of registry )
    Re-Boot after patching..
    If you have a prob with this, just to a System Restore :

    No idea, but since the zip file contains an .exe file I wouldn't touch
    it with a bargepole.

    Its just a patching of some registry entries...Basicly you may call it
    a "Tweaking Patch"...if you know what i mean?...Took me a couple of
    hours and its only 19kb...Believe me....you WILL see a diff :)

    I'd be interested to know how many people actually fall for this. My guess
    A LOT!

    Hmm...
    If you manage to download it and view it without it autorunning, the first
    two lines in the file read:
    ; VERY IMPORTANT! This file may be dangerous under certain conditions.
    ; You should review this file at first!

    The biggest improvements are:
    Don't wait so long to kill a hung app,
    Show menus faster,
    Always unload unused DLLs,
    And, don't clear the pagefile on shutdown.

    I think I'll just skip this one.

    Registry Info of What's going to change --->

    1) increasing working threads-->However, if not enough threads are in
    the pool, work items are not serviced in a timely manner
    2) Enabled application and boot prefetching
    3) Enabled Drivers and system code to remain in physical memory
    4) Enabled SecondLevelDataCache
    5) Kill hung-up quicker
    6) Unload Unused Dll's
    7) Increased icon cache size
    8) Menu Delay Speedup
    9) No delay to first clear the pagefile
    10) Copy files faster from CD's
    11) Giving more cpu cycles to foreground apps
    ...and more

    I wouldn't touch this "fix" with a 6 foot System Restore.
