Windows XP Optimizing Myths
I ran into an excellent page today which provides some good details on many popular myths for optimizing Windows XP.
For instance you can find out why the myths below and others are actually more harmful to your performance.
Myth - "Deleting the contents of the Prefetch folder improves performance"
Myth - "Moving the Pagefile to a different partition on the same drive improves performance”.
Myth - "Disabling these Services(DNS Cache Service and Task Scheduler Service) improves performance."
Myth - "Disabling System Restore improves performance."
Myth - "Registry Cleaners improve performance."
Myth - "Setting Set CPU Priority Tweak value to 26 gives a boost to the priority of foreground applications."
