Suggestions for Proper Maintenance

IMO stay away from the fancy tweeks, they are the key to the doorway of trouble.

You could benefit for adding RAM. 4GB of ram seems works best with 64bit.
Also some AV programs will slow down your system. I have had good luck with MSE.

Not sure if mentioned in the other links, but fast boot in bios helps.

Brink and I agree on the optimize Windows 7, as it is part of my post.. It is really good. Two members suggest the same. I suggest that you give it a try. Again, stay away from the fancy tweeks.

I agree too. That's an excellent performance how-to guide.

When it comes to turning services off, do not disable superfetch as many recommend. If you don't use a homegroup, do disable the two services for that (or at least set to manual). Just remember that you turned them off.
