WindowsUpdates
and interrogating your PC etcTo get it back:Click Start then Run and type "gpedit.msc" without quotes.This opens the
group policy
editor. Then go to:Local Computer Policy then Computer Configuration thenAdministrative Templates then Network then QOS Packet Scheduler and then to LimitReservable Bandwidth.
Double click
on Limit Reservable
bandwidth
. It will say it is notconfigured, but the truth is under the 'Explain' tab i.e."By default, the Packet Scheduler limits the system to 20 percent of the bandwidth of a connection, but you can use thissetting to override the default."So the trick is to ENABLE reservable bandwidth, then setit to ZERO. This will allow the system to reserve nothing, rather than the default 20%.Itworks on Win 2000 as well.

windows XP system
would boot slowly. Most of the times it this has to do with the startup
applications
. If you would like to speed up the bootup sequence, consider removing some of the startup applications that you do notneed. Easiest way to remove startup apps is through
System Configuration Utility
. Go toStart then Run and enter MSCONFIG and go to the Startup tab. Deselect/UnCheck application(s) that you do not want to startup at boot time 
 by Naani | 3:27 AM inHard Disk Tweaks, Performance Tweaks,Windows|comments (0) Windows XP contains a built in
performance
monitor that is constantly examining variousareas of your system. This information can be called up using the performance monitor application found in control panel\administrative tools. Of course, most of us have littleinterest in this sort of performance statistics monitoring, that being more the territory of systems administrators than individual users.The thing is, XP is still monitoring away, and some of its observation tools can use aconsiderable amount of resources. The disk monitoring is an example of this, and it's agood idea to turn the disk monitors off if you are not planning to use the performancemonitor application.
 
To do this:Go to the
command prompt
('start\run' then type 'cmd') and type 'diskperf -N'Alternate MethodWin XP comes with many inbuilt performance monitoring applications that constantlyexamine various parts of the system. This information can be of real use to a systemadministrator for collecting performance statistics. However, for a home user, thesestatistics hold no value and since the monitoring happens all the time, it consumes a gooddeal of system resources. “Disk monitoring”, for example, happens in the background,and turning it off is advisable if you will not be using the performance monitoringapplications. To turn it off, type in “diskperf -N” at a command prompt. To bring up thecommand prompt: go to Start>Run, type in “cmd” and press [Enter].

 by Naani | 3:22 AM inPerformance Tweaks,Registry Tweaks,Windows|comments (0)  Many programs add portions of themselves starting automatically on every login.This can be either in the Startup Folder or the Registry. One easy way to tell is by looking at howmany icons are in your system tray. If you have a large number, perhaps unnecessaryresources are being allocated them as well as increasing your boot time. Typical examplesare Microsoft Office, Office FindFast, Real Player, ATIhttp://www.orkut.com/archive/video">Video setting etc. You can remove them in one of three main ways:In the Start / Programs / Startup Folder In the Registry under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows\ CurrentVersion \ Run 
 by Naani | 3:21 AM inPerformance Tweaks,Windows|comments (0)  If there are applications or commands that you run every single time you start your computer (Email comes to mind) you may want to consider setting things up so that these programs run automatically during the
Windows XP startup
. This can be done quite easilyin XP by creating shortcuts and shuffling them around.Here's how: Windows XP has a startup folder located at 'C:\ Documents and Settings\(your user name)\ Start Menu\ Programs\Startup.' Shortcuts placed into this folder will berun automatically when Windows XP starts up.If you already have shortcuts for the programs you desire to use, copy and paste theminto the startup folder. Otherwise, go to 'start\programs,' select the program you wouldlike to create a shortcut for, right click it and select 'send to' then 'desktop.' This willcreate a shortcut on the desktop that you can then use. 
 by Naani | 3:20 AM inPerformance Tweaks,Registry Tweaks,Windows|comments (0)  With a small registry tweak, Windows XP can be set to automatically close any programthat 'stops responding' (crashes), eliminating the need for you to use the task manager toclose down the offending software manually.To do this:Open REGEDIT and navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\ DesktopModify the REG_SZ entry AutoEndTasks with a value of 1
