I do not agree with every step in the guide. Before using the guide in Post #32. Read this, > http://thessdreview....zation-guide/2/ Please remember that tweaking can destroy your system so is carried out at your own risk. When you have finished a group of tweaks, create a clearly labelled drive image so you have a chance of recovery.


I would only reduce the size of System Restore, I think it too valuable to disable.
Pagefile. I would leave on, make the min and max the same.
Decrease shut down time. I would not apply.

I do not use nor recommend any type of, optimizers, auto reg adjusters, cleaners etc., they usually do your system a lot of harm. windows has nearly all the tools you need and you keep control.

I do use Revo uninstaller.
