I was given a great present (during a chat on our Christmas Day
walk)which I'd like to pass on to you as a New Year gift! It is the
URL of a WikiHow page on speeding up your computer:
http://www.wikihow. com/Speed- up-a-Windows- XP-Computer
I followed much of the advice and it's made such a difference. Steps
1-4 I'd already done recently but steps 5- 7 and the video were the
ones that were new to me and seemed to make the difference. I wish I'd
had time (and patience) to do each step and then test it to see which
one made the most difference, but really I'm just happy not to have to
wait 10 minutes for my computer to start up. Optimising the display
for speed rather than appearance may be one of the big differences and
it doesn't look too bad.
Hope it saves you some time in the coming year that you can spend
doing more valuable and enjoyable things than watching your computer
struggling to work. (Of course those of you with shiny, shiny new
netbooks won't need it - yet.)
A happy new year to you all.
