As a newly-released operating system, Windows 7 is popular with lots of PC users right now. But on the other hand, I still hear lots of users complaint of their slow Windows 7. So is there any way to speed up Windows 7 except virus scan, upgrading RAM or graphic card? Maybe the tips below will help you quickly make it run faster.
1) To speed up Windows 7, what you need to do first is to reasonably manage your startup items. We know that no matter how strong a person is, the more he is loaded the slower he will perform. The same applies to your computer. Too many programs running at one time, will extremely make Windows 7 slow. So please press your [START] button then enter "msconfig" into the search window (this where you see the grey text Search Programs and Files and press the [ENTER] button on your keyboard to access system configuration, go to [Startup] tab and disable the items which do not need to run when booting up Windows 7.
2) Secondly, you can increase Windows 7 boot speed to solve slow Windows 7 problem. Go to Start -> type ‘msconfig’ in the search box and press [Enter]->select [Advanced Options] within [Boot] tab to set the [Number of processors] according to your own computer configuration.
3) Thirdly, you can shorten its shutdown time to speed up Windows 7. This can be easily done by modifying Windows registry. Go to Start -> [regedit] and press [Enter] to open Registry Editor ->locate ‘HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/CurrentControlSet/Control’->right click [WaitToKillServiceTimeOut] to change its value data to the least.
4) Fourthly, to avoid slow Windows 7, it is recommended that you do not use the Aero theme, which always takes a large amount of system resources, CPU usage. Simply right-click on the blank space of the desktop to select [Personalize], click on [Window Color] tab, uncheck [Enable Transparency], and then click on [Open classic appearance properties for more color options], scroll the themes down until you see the Basic themes.
