- Checked for viruses and malware. (None found! )
- Defragmented hard disk using Windows Defragmenter
- Defragmented system files using pagedefrag.
- Cleared all system "junk" on all accounts using CCleaner (that was really bad, I managed to reclaim like 1 GB)
- Uninstalled all unused programs and archived old files to an external hard disk,
- Removed unused fonts (500 to 280)
- Configured startup programs using msconfig and the section in CCleaner (I don't think I've done this too well)
Thanks for reading,
