22 Aug 2010   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

There's a free program that i sometimes use called Glary Utility's and it has stuff like Defrag, Registry Cleaner, Disk Cleaner, Start-up-Manager, ect.

Windows 10, Home Clean Install

My advice is to stay away from Reg cleaners. I have helped too many, here, already that had problems due to reg cleaners. Many will agree, I am sure.

I could type forever on this subject but I won't. If you read and comply with riche46 post # 2 and 12. Pusspa7 post #7 you will have a very good start. IMHO Windows 7 just works great all by itself. BEWARE operating system so called Tuneup Programs can do more harm than good.
If your not sure of something do research and start here.

I personally DO NOT BELIEVE that principle. For people with 4 gigs of RAM like yourself, common degradations in performance isn't that noticeable, but use a PC with 1 GB RAM, like mine or below and you do feel the machine gets slower by the time.
To clarify, I was speaking of optimization as in tweaking, and screwing around with the registry, which are unnecessary with Win 7.

It doesn't matter how much RAM you have. Regular maintenance of your PC is vital to maintaining the performance level. I regularly do most of the things that Lemur posted, and I also do your excellent suggestion of blowing out the dust.

I'm sorry that you disagree with me, but you'll never see a reg cleaner or tuneup utility on my machine. I've read too many horror stories, and I personally trashed an install of Vista by using them. No more.

4 GB to 8 GB RAM. Where's the performance increase?
I know there is probably a simple answer out there, however RAM is cheap right now and I though I would go ahead and future proof my system or whatever. My WEI with 4 GB RAM was 6.6 and after upgrading to 8 GB of Crucial RAM it was 6.6. I knew the difference from 4 to 8 would be negligible but I...
