Tips to speed up the boot process.

You must have faced some problems like your system really slows down when u install some new software's especially after you format the systems nd then install software like office, winamp, wizip etc..
well what some basic things u can do is
1. start-> run-> msconfig-> startup-> and in this deselect the software's boot process just by unticking that, it will surely help your system in fastening up the boot process.

2. my computer-> properties-> advanced->under performance --> setting --> advance --> under virtual memory --> change --> choose drive where OS is running --> Custom size --> type (size 2*RAM Size) both Initial size and Maximum size --> OK --> restart the system.

you Try this one only if you are aware of the registry.
Every time u install a new software or make some changes into that, then a folder is created called PREFETCH folders.

Now u can go into the registry and then make the value of the prefetch folder from 1 to 0.
This will really save a lot of space as well also it will fasten up the booting process as well
