It can't all be done simply by "tweaking" some settings and disabling unecessary startup items, though that often helps. The most dramatic improvements to PC performance come from adding more RAM and/or a faster processor. As for internet speed, you can't magically increase it yourself. You are limited by the bandwidth your ISP has allocated to you, which may be limited by several factors such as your distance from the exchange and the condition of the cabling between you and the exchange. Internal extension leads for additional phones can also restrict bandwidth so try not use any.

A computer is only as fast as the slowest component in the machine, which in most instances is the hard drive speed. Until somebody invents a half-decent solid state hard drive, then things aren't going to change any time soon. Internet is a different kettle of fish and you'll probably find you're on an "up to" package which is jargon for "anything but that speed".

Those things are all minor cosmetic things that, to all intents and purposes, make little difference. Plus anyway if you're told something adds speed, the effect is only what you think is happening, not what has happened. The tip about not displaying wallpaper may have been true a few years ago but these days computers are so fast it really makes no difference.

Nothing you can do is going to make a dramatic difference to how your computer works - Windows being Windows, a fresh installation will work but it means reloading everything, and usually ends up going the same way again anyway.
