i have a p4 2.52 ghz processor and two ram on board ( 512mb-333mhz and 128mb-266mhz).
still i think i am not gettin the speed which i should. mostly the problem is like whenevr i rt click for the first time it takes like 4-5 seconds to pop up the menu. i tried installing a ram optimizer software (free ram xp pro) and most of the time it tells that almost 400mb of my ram is free. and the problem is with deletion to.
whenevr i preee shift delete on a file it takes like 5 second to ask me for a confirmation. i dont know whats wrong . have i changed somethin that has done the malice to my comp. i mean it never used to be like this way. are there any other good pc optimizing softwares that are low on ram and are reliable to.
cheers.

Consider setting virtual memory to system managed as well

Click start then all programmes, accessories, system tools to run disc clean up, then also from system tools, run disc defragmenter

Click start then run, type prefetch then press enter, click edit then select all, (all files will highlight), right click any file, click delete, confirm then reboot.

Download, install and run
Tune Up 2006 Trial

Run Tune Up disc clean up

Run Tune Up registry clean up

Click Optimize and Improve to run Reg Defrag, the screen will lose colour during the process which can take a few minutes and then needs a reboot

Those will have cleared the drive of obsolete software errors

These are suggestions for making the most of the free trial

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to optimize the computer, select computer with an internet connection from the drop down menu, this also requires a reboot

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to accelerate downloads, select the speed just above your actual connection speed, this requires a reboot.

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to run system advisor

If Tune Up finds anything it will fix it without saying you need to upgrade

Prefetch
