Speed up your xp startup

Over time your registry can turn bloated with unused entries, slowing down your system start up because your system loads them every time you stat up your PC. Get a registry cleanup tool to delete unneeded registry entries and speed up start up times. You can manually delete the obsolete entries of uninstalled programs registry entries by pressing CTRL+F key simultaneously. For this open registry editor –Start-Run-regedit-ok. Remember to enter the correct file name which you are uninstalled and delete it. Alternatively you can use good registry cleaner like Registry mechanic.
There is a simple way to speed up XP startup. Make your system do a boot defragment, which will put all the boot files next to each other on your hard disk. When boot files are in proximity to each other, your system will start faster. On most systems, boot defragment should be enabled by default, but it might have been changed inadvertently. To make sure boot defragment is enabled on your system, run the registry editor and go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Dfrg\BootOptimizeFunction. Edit the” Enable” string value to”Y”if it is not already to set to this. Exist the registry and reboot the system

Most people don’t realize that you can also speed up the time your computers to get to Windows. 1. Quick power on self test(POST):When you choose this option, your system runs an abbreviated POST rather than the normal, lengthy one.2.Boot up Floppy seek: Disable this option. When it is enabled, your system spends a few extra seconds looking for your floppy drive, a relatively pointless procedure, especially considering how in frequently you use your Floppy drive.3.Boot delay: Some system let you delay booting after you turn on your PC so that you’re hard drive gets a change to star pinning before boot up. Most likely you don’t need to have this boot delay, so turn it off. If you run into problems, however, you can always turn it back again.
