Faster startup of Windows XP

Posted in Windows XP by Community Submission

If your computer takes a long time to become useable after starting up or logging on, or you want a clean boot of Winodws XP try this,

Click Start > Run > Type "msconfig"  > On the Startup tab click Disable All and on the Services tab check the Hide All Microsoft Service box and then click Disable All. Click Restart and Windows XP will restart with only the system services and applications running resulting in a vey fast logon / startup.

N.B This tweak will disable all non-system startup sevices and applications so if you have anything you want to run in the background such as anti virus software do not disable that item.

Note from tweakxp Staff - While this tweak will do what it promises, it's not one we recommend. Rather, we suggest you visit the Common Questions area in our support forum and follow the direcitons in the Services post to disable unnecessary services. - Allan
