What do you do to your vista install to make it fast?

For the love of god i cant get my vista as fast as i did previously.

With the help of you lovely people I need tweaks that wont affect what it can do, rather how fast it does it. I dont want classic interface...but if it helps that much

My main issue is transfer speeds - digustingly slow

Vista home premium SP1 not vlited

Do you want to speed up inside vista or speed up the boot?

vista should run fast on your machine

i have no issues on my setup

make sure that you dont have programs starting up that you dont need eg msn

it may be that the hdd is too slow

sorry should have read your first post more thoroughly, what are you transfering and from what to what?

Normal Transfer speeds are approx:

USB Drive to C: = 20mbs

ESATA to C: = 60mbs

My Pc transfers from C: to usb at about 5 mbs

I dont know if this correlates to your pc. I did read that disabling a setting in the "windows Features" of the programs section of control panel can increase transfer speeds by up to 33%. The setting is "Remote Differential Compression". I havent tried this so cant guarantee anything, just remember it from my searches.

I have found that using a good after market defragger and a registry defragger have made an impact on my transfer speeds.

Hope that helps

Ok I'll bite. I leave it off the system and use XP or 7.

i dont care about the boot, could be faster..sure (if theres a way of speeding this up then do tell) but primarily i want to sort inside of vista

yeh it should do and im sure iv had it running sweet before, as for startup items i always set it to minimum to startup (display driver, antivirus kinda thing)

yeh it could be the hdd - OS is on a seagate 7200.10 320gb drive defragged with perfectdisk

Hiya, general speeds hardly ever hit that. Going to my usb devices is usually sub 10mb/s (even tho my rally2 usb drive is capable of over 20MB/s) and hdd to secondary hdd (exactly the same as primary) is about 40mb/s

Latest drivers for everything.

Emphasise on the everything part.

When I say drivers for everything I mean USB drivers, Optical drive drivers, etc.
