tips for reliable Computer/PC ...

12. Start Up Programs: Windows can be slowed down when programs run on start up. To eliminate this, check your Start up folder. You can access it from the start menu: Start, Programs, Start Up. Another way to eliminate programs from loading even before Windows actually starts is by doing the following: Click on Start, then Run. Type msconfig. It will take quite a long time for this program to load, but when you finally see it on your screen, explore the different tabs. They all have to do with how quickly your PC boots, so select what you want, and uncheck what you don't want!

13. Fonts: When Windows starts, it loads every single font in the Fonts folder. Therefore, the more fonts you have, the slower the booting process. To get rid of unwanted fonts, simply go to the
Fonts folder under c:\windows and remove whatever you don't want. Fonts that have a red letter 'A' as their icon are system fonts, so don't delete them.


14. RAM Matters: If you have less than 1GB then you should seriously think of upgrading it to at least 2-4GB. Windows runs much more smoothly with 4GB or higher and tends to use less
hard disk space for virtual memory.

15. Partitioning: A very nice little thing you can do to boost system performance. By partitioning your hard drive, splitting one physical drive into several logical ones, you can gain several advantages. 

  •   If you get a virus or you accidentally format a drive, not all will be lost.
  •   By placing the swap file (Win386.swp) on a separate drive, The swap file will be less fragmented and thus, faster.
  •   Place Windows on a separate drive and whenever you need to reinstall it, you rest assured that your data is safe on a separate drive. Partitioning can be done using a few programs such as FDisk which comes with DOS. However, FDisk formats everything on the hard disk before partitioning. alternatively, you can use Partition Magic from Power Quest to partition your hard disk without losing your data.
