    Making Windows XP Start 60% Faster Tutorial

    Whenever you start your computer, you are faced with a few moments of thumb twiddling while Windows XP boots and prompts you to log on. Although you should expect to wait for a few moments, sometimes Windows XP seems to boot rather slowly. In fact, you may notice that over a period of time the PC that used to roar to life seems a bit sluggish instead. Fortunately, you can perform several techniques that help Windows XP get the bootup speed you want. This tutorial explores how to put these techniques to work.

    # Stopping Unneeded Startup Services
    # Manual IP Addressing on Small Office/Home Networks
    # Disabling Recent Documents History
    # Disabling the Boot Logo
    # Removing Unwanted Fonts
    # Stopping Remote Assistance and Remote Desktop Sharing
    # Speeding Up the Dual-Boot Timeout
    # Speeding Up Your PPPoE Connection
    # Reducing the Wait Time
    # Automatically Killing Tasks on Shutdown
