Windows 7: Trustworthy Performance Tweak Guides?

Trustworthy Performance Tweak Guides?

Hello, I hope you are doing well.

My friend recently purchased a notebook and netbook, both of which are rather low models, and is looking for trustworthy tweak guides to speed up his computers.

Can someone recommend me some specific guides?

Of course, I've looked through this forum and did a search on Google, but a lot of guides seem outdated and I don't want to recommend him something that isn't reliable. I've been a member of this forum even before Windows 7 was officially released, and have contributed several articles since, so my own computer was tweaked years ago.

Thank you very much,

Tweak guides are often useless as the features you use and dont use determine the settings you need and dont need for each machine, so a user who uses search etc would want indexing on and someone who never serches for local files would want indexing off. Most of it is only usefull for certain circumstances (which often end up changing). the best advice I can give is to install nothing except that which is needed. Dont have a stack of un-needed startup items and clear your junk files regularly.
