    Default How can I improve performance of Windows 7?

    I just installed windows 7 as a test on an old laptop revival project. I put it on a PIII 1.2Ghz with 512mb of ram, and while it seems to be running surprisingly well, I was wondering if there were any suggestions on what can be done in a windows 7 standard install to reduce the memory footprint even further or tweak/improve the performance?

    Start with the basics:

    Disable unwanted start-ups.

    Maybe turn off Windows features you dont need through the Control Panel.

    Also open Control Panel > System and Security > System Properties > Advanced System Settings > Advanced tab > Performance settings > Visual Effects > Adjust for best performance > Apply > OK.

    And only if you are a tweak enthusiast, should you try and disable some unwanted Windows 7 services or tweak your Windows!

    You could turn off the things that you do not need from the features.
