3 Useful Tips For Optimizing Windows System Performance

Here is a quick tip for cleaning up your Windows OS and optimize your system for better performance.
Under Microsoft's technet, Mark Russinovich created a great system utility call Process Explorer for Windows which gives you a better ideas than the typical Windows Task Manager's Processes tab by showing extensive details about each process handles and loaded. Because its natural of intent, using it to stop some annoying, bugged down and lousy processes/spywares can be very beneficial to the life of your system as well as your computing experience.


So go ahead and download Process Explorer, run it and use it to sort thru the process list by company names.

Kill any processes that don't have a Company Name (with the exception of DPCs, Interrupts, System, and System Idle Process). Right-click the processes and select Kill, or select them and press the Delete key.

Once those unwanted processes were gone, it sure feel like you just gave your system a hair cut. You will notice how happy it is performing now for you with all the clean process and uncloggness. However, once reboot your system, thing may not be as harmony as you might think, some bad process will restart itself and bugged down will eventually happen again, so the next tool I will introduce is something that will give you the power to decide if certain programs or processes be allowed to load on start up. It is call AutoRuns for Windows and it has plenty of startup related features for users to decide for their system so download and run it.

The third tip is more of traditional way by using the MSCONFIG: for complete instruction, follow these steps in How to use MSCONFIG here.

Ok, I hope that 3 of these quick tips can keep your system more optimize!
