Arriving there, find the value HungAppTimeout that should be 5000 (default). If not, place. Even so, look for the value WaitToKillAppTimeout. Change the value to 3000.

>>> HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ System \ CurrentControlSet \ Con trol \
and replace the value of WaitToKillServiceTimeout to 3000 as well. Another hint:>>> Administrative Tools in Control Panel. Click Services and look for the NVidia Driver Help service. In its properties, check it to Manual and not Disabled.

>>> Start / excultal / gpedit.msc
Go to Administrative Templates, System, and then jump to the User Profiles. On the right side of the screen appears the option Maximum number of attempts to download and update user profile.
Enable it and assigns the value 0

A dialog box asking for username and password.

Speeding up the Start Menu:
>>> Start / Execultar / Regedit
HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Control Panel \ Desktop \
MenuShowDelay (Change the value of 400 to 150 or 100) If you do not have this key, create it with the values 150 or 100.

Accelerating the Programs:
Include this key after the command line to load the program, click Properties => Object.
Example: To do with IE6, add the key after the command, thus "C: \ Program Files \ Internet Explorer \ IEXPLORE.EXE" / prefetch: 1

Speed of Access to Files and Programs:
For any version of Windows.
>>> Start / Execultar / Regedit
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SYSTEM \ CurrentControlSet \ Contro l \ FileSystem
Create a dword with value (Edit / New / DWORD Value). Renamed with the name of ContigFileAllocSize.
Double-click on it and type the value of 200 in hexadecimal (512 in decimal).

Disabling the Hibernation:
Start> Control Panel> Power Options. Go to the tab "Hibernate", uncheck the "Enable hibernation", click "Apply" and "ok"

Best Performance in Windows XP:
Go on, My Computer> Properties> Advanced> Performance> Settings> "Fit to Get the Best Performance."
If you let some of the options is to your discretion.

>>> Start / Execultar / System.ini
Copy and Paste on a line below>>> "[386enh]
32BitDiskAccess = on
32BitFileAccess = on
DMABufferSize = 64
MinSPs = 16
PageBuffers = 32
ConservativeSwapfileUsage = 1

32BitDiskAccess = on, active drivers in 32bit
32BitFileAccess = on, there are files Provides access 32bit
DMABufferSize = 64, increase the size of the reading Buffers
MinSPs = 16, Minimum size of system 16Bits
PageBuffers = 32, increased paging of reading 32bit
ConservativeSwapFileUsage = 1, requires Windows to use all the PCI memory that is installed on your computer.
It really is very good now that Windows is better manage the files on 32bit, and memory will be available for all programs and games that are installed on the micro.

Disabling Automatic Playback For CDs:
Go to Start> Run and type "gpedit.msc" (without quotes). Go to Computer Configuration> Administrative Templates> System. Double-click on "Disable automatic playing." Select Enable.

Disabling services that open Gaps:
Unless you actually use the Telnet opens the door to an invasion. To disable it, go to Control Panel> Administrative Tools> Services. Change the Telnet service to "manual" to "disabled". Also disable the services "Sharing the remote desktop, NetMeeting" and "Remote Registry".

Unloading the DLL

When you open a game or a program is very heavy loads the DLL, but to leave the windows has the difficulty of downloading them Rápita. Now let's avoid this small error.
this tip and direct from Microsoft
>>> Start / Execultar / Regedit
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows \ Curr entVersion \ Explorer registry subkey.
From the Edit menu, select New, DWORD Value.
Enter the name AlwaysUnloadDLL, and then press Enter.
Double-click the new value, set it to 1, and then click OK.
Close the registry editor, and then reboot the machine for the change to take effect.

Better manage the swap file (virtual memory)

Home computers with more than 512Mb not normally need to use virtual memory, which has caused loss of performance. To disable it, go to Control Panel> System> Advanced> Performance> Advanced> Virtual Memory> Change. Select "no swap file", click Set and OK.

If you need to use virtual memory, calculate it based on 1.5 x the amount of RAM available (for example, if you have 128Mb of RAM, your swap file will be 192MB) and set it to original size, and maximum simultaneously. This will cause the size of the exchange is fixed, preventing loss of performance and fragmentation of it.

If you notice crashes or loss of performance, let Windows manage virtual memory to you, sometimes it is the best option.

Boot faster
If you have installed Windows XP on a FAT32 partition to convert it to NTFS. The boot will be faster.

Among the DOS prompt and type: convert c: / fs: ntfs

Already tried this trick twice and always worked.

So in changing your Windows XP Themes

Step 1: Download these files:
With SP1 installed:
Without SP1 installed:

Restart the computer.
At boot time, press F8 and select Safe Mode with Command Prompt.
In the command promp type:

CD .. (to get to the root of drive)
CD c: \ windows \ system32
ren Uxtheme.dll uxtheme.bak
copy c: \ temp \ Uxtheme.dll

When you give the warning that 1 file was copied successfully, restart the machine.
Then just use the themes!

Shortcuts for Restart and Shutdown your windows XP
Area of work in establishing a new shortcut, and asked where the command line, type:
% windir% \ System32 \ Shutdown.exe-s-t 0. This shortcut will turn off the microwave.

% windir% \ SYSTEM32 \ Shutdown.exe-r-t 0. This one serves to restart the micro.

What if I want to restart or shut down automatically without installing any program like Sleepy?
Simply replace the "0" by the number of shortcuts in seconds that you want Windows to perform the action.
Off in an hour = 3600 seconds.
So the shortcut will be:% windir% \ System32 \ Shutdown.exe 3600-s-t.

Perssonalizando the Property System
First you make a text file like this:
Note: that you put an example and what you want!

Manufacturer = Pentium4 2.8GHz 800MHz
Model = Overclock to 3.6Ghz

[Support Information]
Line1 = Aracknideo Powered By
Line2 =
Line3 = Motherboard: Gigabyte 8PENxp
Line4 =
Line5 = Processor: Intel Pentium4 2.8Ghz 800MHz
Line6 =
Line7 = Memory: DDR 512 PC3200 CL2.5 (up to 200MHz) x2
Line8 =
Line9 = CPU Cooler: Thermalright SP-94 + Vantec Tornado 92mm
Line10 =
Line11 = Video Card: MSI GeForce4 Ti4800 128Mb
Line12 =
Line13 = Sound Card: Creative Sound Blaster Audigy2 ZS Platinum Pro
Line14 =
Line15 = Drivers: Seagate 160GB HD-CD-DVD-(+)-RWx4
Line16 =
Line17 = Contact: [email][/email]

After that you can edit in Notepad even save it with that name Oeminfo.ini and put in the folder c: / windows/system32!

After you take a picture of + or - 180x114 pixels with 256 colors and save it as Oemlogo.BMP and put it in the same folder as the Oeminfo.ini would be C: / windows/system32 and ready ta done!
