Speeding the machine up!

Hello to all,

How to speed up a Windows machine (say, seven or XP), considering following two issues?

1- Without using non Windows built-in tools.
2- Without manipulating the Registry.

Thanks.

Use an SSD

Use more RAM

Disable Startup items except for the most essential like the AV

Disable services that are not required for the setup you are using

Well these are least you can do without using any software or inbuilt tools

I don't want a solution for a specific machine. It should be usable for any machine (seven, XP).
And my purpose was not to speeding the machine up by increasing the capacity of hardware devices, for example RAM!

You mentioned... non Windows built in tools.... now.. its either Built in tools or Third party software... Don't know what you meant

If no hardware.. then these are the very basic you can do

If this is not what you meant... Then its better you talk to a Magician !!! probably he can help you with speeding up your system... without doing anything...
