Need help speeding up windows 7

Hi all, uhm I just upgraded my laptop from vista to windows 7 and to be honest I dont really notice that it is that much faster (like people say it should be). Is there anything extra I should do to speed it up? any tips? Thanks

Its speed will be determined by your system components ... please click on the link in my sig and fill out your system specs so we can see what we are dealing with...

Go to Start > Run,and type msconfig. Uncheck all entries except for your anti-virus software.

You can also disable unneeded services.

Be careful here.

Check Black Viper's site here for a good explanation:

@ Tews: I just filled in my system specs. Please help me if you are able to. Thanks
@ Reghakr: What does that do exactly? I dont want to do anything that will harm my system.

The idea is that sometimes (most of the time actually) there are entries in the startup section of msconfig that will slow your system down... once you disable them, then you can tell whether this improves your system speed or not... usually it will.... Do as Greg suggests and post your results...

Hello ComputerUser,

Usually a clean install works best instead of a upgrade, but the items listed in the tutorial below should help increase the performance of Windows 7.

I would agree. Getting rid of needless startup programs is the best way to speed up your computer.

Try CCleaner and use the function to stop any unnecessary startups.

lets do this too cause we need to go more indept with your hardware...

Download this software and run it on your computer and youw ill be amazed on how much information it will pull up on your computer

SiSoftware Sandra Lite Download - Softpedia

I would just do like a Overview / Motherboard configureation...... The overview should be good enough but the motherboard will tell us in dept on how its transfering files...

the over view will give us a good general id of what exactly we got running in that system
