Here's a couple of tutorials to get you started. Which tweaks you use are entirely up to you.

Here's a tip. Don't do ANY reg tweaks.

Win7 does not require tweaks. It will work against you in almost every case in the long run.

I uncheck everything in msconfig>Startup except AV and gadgets. Make sure you have the latest drivers in Device Manager: check optional Windows Updates and the Support Downloads webpage for your model computer or device.

Work through repeat errors in Event Viewer>Admin View by googling the text and ID number to find solution.

Clean and order the HD monthly using state-of-the-art CCleaner and Auslogics Disk and REgistry defraggers.

Mellon has it right - no reg tweaks. And if you can't help it, back up your registry.
You can check your bios settings.

also greg rocker i did that with the event viewer but never seem to find a fix and the drivers that do not load are drivers that i do not need but always are in my even viewer as an error

Which drivers? If they are erroring in Event Viewer then their absence is affecting performance. I would install them anyway, or disable the device in Device Manager.

Troubleshooting in the Event logs is an intuitive process that involves googling the error text and identification numbers to read as much as you can find until you understand the error enough to tackle it and take it down. I have sometimes had as many as a dozen chronic errors which took me from a day to several months to finally resolve. Some will even become apparent to be harmless.
