Vista Performance and Tuning

added by Michael on 4 Aug 2008

Microsoft recently released a 14 page Vista performance tuning guide that "focuses on performance improvements on a single computer, but also takes a look at some of the tools used in enterprise environements to help make performance tuning manageable on a much larger scale".

Whew.  That was a mouthful!  If you'd like to speed up your Vista, give it a read.

LifeHacker comments:

Microsoft's suggestions include customizing Vista's power plan, sleeping the machine instead of shutting down, turning off search indexing in folders you don't need it, disabling visual effects, using ReadyBoost to add extra memory with a thumb drive, and disabling unneeded startup programs and services. All of these tips are old hat to seasoned Windows tweakers, but this PDF is a nicely-laid out and detailed package you can easily email to your brother-in-law.
