Put Kernel in to RAM for better performance

The base of Windows XP is ‘Kernel’. It uses the Slower Paging Executive function which slows down the performance. If we put the kernel in to RAM to run, the performance will increase because as we know anything that runs from the RAM will be faster than that run from hard drive or Virtual memory. Do the following hack. Open the registry editor, go to-

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SYSTEM \CurrentControlSet \ Session manager \ MemoryManagement \ DisablePagingExecutive. Change the value to ‘1’ to disable paging and have the kernel run in RAM. Set the value to ‘0’ undo the hack. Exit the registry editor and reboot.

[Only do this if your system has 256Mb or more RAM]
