Hey, i'm kind of computer illiterate and i'm trying to make my computer faster with out going to bios, i found that i can turn off some programs by going to "msconfig" and also i have Spybot, Ad-Aware, and Spyware Blaster. I De-frag my compter once every two weeks or so, but i see a decrease in the number of ram i have not an increase, is there away to really know which programs to turn off and which programs have to stay on in "msconfig" and are there more ways for my computer to get faster, again without using "bios"?
Edit: and do i really need these service packs Microsoft is giving my computer, i have a Compaq.
Edit 2: sorry, one more thing on the task manager and processes, is there a way to know also which to turn off and on?
Thank you, Silk.
