Enable ClearType
Microsoft states, "With Windows XP, ClearType delivers improved font display resolution over traditional anti-aliasing. It improves readability on color LCD monitors with a digital interface,such as those in laptops and high-quality flat desktop displays.

Classic Start Menu
If you prefer to have your system Icons on the Desktop rather than having many of them in your Start Menu, then here's how to get the Classic Start Menu on your XP system.Right-click the Start Menu and choose Properties.

Back up the XP Registry
Go to Start>> Run, type in: regeditClick on the registry key that you are going to edit.Go to File and click Export.Choose a location to save the registry key file and click Save.Or you can use a small utility called "ERUNT" which stands for: The Emergency RecoveryUtility NT. This is an emergency registry backup and restore utility for Windows NT/2000/XP574 KB NOTE: Please keep in mind that using the export style of backup is not a complete backup of theWindows registry. ERUNT is a very good backup program and is a complete backup of the
registry, but I believe the System Restore (SR) feature that comes with XP is the best and safestway to backup. With SR, you'll have a months worth of clean registry backup copies to choosefrom (assuming the chosen restore point was in fact clean to start with). Remember, each restore point overwrites the next. Now, If you use ERUNT, you could be restoring a copy of your registry that is much older than a month, whereby you would lose any programs and/or changesthat you've made after making your backup copy. So, you can see that the SR is best because youcan always choose a restore point that is very recent.For further information regarding the System Restore feature:Click the article numbers below to view the articles in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:306084 HOW TO: Restore Windows XP to a Previous State304449 HOW TO: Start System Restore Tool From Command Prompt283073 HOW TO: Disable the System Restore Configuration User Interface302796 Troubleshooting System Restore in Windows XP[Top]
