Windows XP Registry Tweaks

It's not often that I post about windows

So for my first post on the subject I thought I'd post this, mostly taken from my website.

I'm going to trust you understand the registry, the use of .reg files and the possible consequences of your actions.

I normally use these reg files after installing from a custom slipstreamed XP SP2 Disc (with firewall, win update & sec centre removed).

You will notice on the system tweaks the UDMA for intel is commented, this is for people who have different chipsets. Just uncomment for intel chipsets.

The files can be downloaded from my site:

disable-services.reg

sec-tweaks.reg

network-tweaks.reg

system-tweaks.reg

To disable services you dont need to mess with the registry You can either go to

Control Panel/ Admin Tools/ Services or

Start/ Run/ msconfig/ services tab (need restart)

Disabling almost half my services is one of the first things i do (after driver install)

Or simply download a reg file and double click on it

All the network tweaks do mainly is speedup DNS resolution. So it wouldn't effect your network like that (as it only tweaks the cache). It also stops windows from syncing the network on logon(which drops a lot of network traffic).

here's a link to the intel reg file

It's the same as the other one with the UDMA bit uncommented I am using it on my P5W without problems. Altho I'm not sure it's needed for the newer drivers/chipsets
