  1. Best answer

    Go to "start > msconfig > boot tab > advanced options" tick "number of processors" box and select the highest number, do the same with the "maximum memory" box.

    Also, disable the GUI by ticking the "No GUI Boot" box.

    This will speed your startup time up.
  2. Thanks for reply i've done the steps you told. If I upgrade my ram to 8 GB from 4 GB will it increase my speed?

  4. yes, although you could simply increase the pageing file until you get mroe physical ram.

    "right click my computer > properties > advanced system settings > settings tab under performance > advanced".

    There will be a button called "change". Select "custom size" and make both box's "5000".

    Paging file is a space on the HDD that is used as ram, it is much slower so physical ram is better, but this will speed your computer up as a whole.
  5. Thank you very much, help is really appreciated!
