Speed Up Ur Internet connection

Speed Up Internet

Windows 2k/XP

1. First, open the Windows Registry using Regedit, and (after backing up) navigate to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\Tcpip\ServiceProvider
2. Note the following lines (all hex dwords):
Class = 008 ( biggrin.gif - indicates that TCP/IP is a name service provider, don't change
LocalPriority = 1f3 (499) - local names cache
HostsPriority = 1f4 (500) - the HOSTS file
DnsPriority = 7d0 (2000) - DNS
NetbtPriority = 7d1 (2001) - NetBT name-resolution, including WINS
3. What we're aiming to do is increase the priority of the last 4 settings, while keeping their order. The valid range is from -32768 to +32767 and lower numbers mean higher priority compared to other services. What we're aiming at is lower numbers without going to extremes, something like what's shown below should work well:
4. Change the "Priority" lines to:
LocalPriority = 005 (5) - local names cache
HostsPriority = 006 (6) - the HOSTS file
DnsPriority = 007 (7) - DNS
NetbtPriority = 008 ( biggrin.gif - NetBT name-resolution, including WINS
5. Reboot for changes to take effect

2. Windows 9x/ME

1. The tweak is essentialy the same as in Windows 2000/XP, just the location in the Registry is slightly different. For a more detailed description see the Windows 2000/XP section above
2. Open the Windows Registry using Regedit, and (after backing up) navigate to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\VxD\MSTCP\ServiceProvider
3. You should see the following settings:

4. The "priority" lines should be changed to:
5. Reboot for changes to take effect

3. System.ini IRQ Tweak - Windows 9x/ME ONLY

1. Find your Network Card's IRQ

1. In order to add the entry to your System.ini file, you'd first have to find your NIC's IRQ
2. Right-click on My Computer icon on your Desktop, then left-click on Properties (a shortcut for that would be to press the 'Windows' + 'Pause' keys). Navigate to Device Manager and double-click on Computer. Under "View Resources" you will find a list of IRQs, each with description of the device that's using it. Note the IRQ number used by your Network Adapter

2. Adding the entry to System.ini

1. Once you've found the IRQ of your Network Card, you need to reserve some RAM for its use, by adding an entry to the System.ini file. You can edit the file in any text editor, however the easiest way is to use Windows' built in "System Configuration Editor"
2. Navigate to Start > Run and type sysedit . Find the [386enh] Section in the System.ini file and add Irq[n]=4096 under it, where [n] is the IRQ number of your NIC and 4096 is the amount of RAM you want to reserve in Kbytes. We recommend using 4096, however you can experiment with different values if you want. Save changes in the file, exit and reboot for changes to take effect.
Note: If you choose to try different values, keep in mind that reserving too much RAM for your NIC will decrease the amount of RAM available for applications, while reserving too little might not give the desired effect

3. Additional Thoughts
1. The only negative effect of the System.ini IRQ tweak is that it will reduce the amount of RAM available for running applications a bit, by reserving some specifically for your Network Card's use. The gain in performance usually outweighs the negative effect by far, considering any Computer with 32Mb of RAM or more
2. This tweak may or may not work for you. It is not a documented tweak by Windows
3. Keep in mind that if you add hardware to your system the IRQ of the Network Adapter might change, in which case you will need to modify the setting in System.ini
4. In systems with multiple NICs, you might want to add the setting for both IRQs. Also, you could reserve RAM for other IRQs if you wish, just use common sense and don't forget it reduces the amount of RAM available for running applications
5. If you are using an USB device, it does not have a specific IRQ, however you can try adding the entry using the IRQ of the USB Controller
6. For internal Cable Modems, you'd have to add the entry using the IRQ of your modem, rather than the IRQ of a Network Card

Increase Hard Drive Speeds in XP

Simple Tweaking and also works with Windows 2003...

NOTE: I only recommend doing this if you have 256mb of RAM or higher.

STEP 1: Start > Run > then type SYSEDIT.EXE

STEP 2: Expand the system.ini file window.

STEP 3: Scroll down almost to the end of the file till you find a line called [386enh]

STEP 4: Press Enter to make one blank line, and in that line type


NOTE: The above info for the new line is case sensitive

STEP 6: Select File > Save

STEP 7: Close SYSEDIT and reboot your computer

NOTE: Once your computer has been rebooted, you should notice a change in your hdd's performance. I have tested this on IDE hdd's and it has worked fine. I've read in a few locations online that it could possibly work for SCSI disks but I don't have any to attempt the theory. If someone does test it and can vouch for the SCSI's improved performance, please let me know.

How To Create A "Shut Down" Desktop Shortcut

Have you ever wished there was a quicker, simpler way to shut down your computer? Do you wish you could sidestep the whole process of clicking "Turn Off" or "Shut Down" from the "Start" menu, only to have to click it again on the dialog box that comes up? Following are some simple steps to help you create a desktop shortcut so you can shut down in one swift step.

Step 1

Right click anywhere on your desktop, making sure your cursor is not on an icon. Point to "New" and then click on "Shortcut."

Step 2

A "Create Shortcut" wizard will pop up. In the field following "Type the Location of the Item:" enter the following: %windir%\System32\shutdown.exe -s -f -t 00. Simply copy and paste this code, starting with the first % and ending with the 00 (but not the period).

Step 3

Click "Next." Under "Type a Name for This Shortcut:" enter "Shutdown."

Step 4

Click Finish. A new icon called "Shutdown" will appear on your desktop.

Step 5

If you want to customize the icon, right click it and then click on "Properties." Go to the "Shortcut" tab and click the "Change Icon" button.

In the dialog box that opens, click on the icon you wish to use. Click "OK", and then "Apply", and then "OK" again.

Step 7

When you are ready to shut down your computer, simply double click your new shortcut.

Arrange windows on your desktop

In Windows, you can arrange windows side by side, which can be especially helpful when comparing two documents or when moving files from one place to another. Note: If you’re using a nonstandard setup (such as dual monitors), the tricks below may not work as expected.

Windows 7
Drag the title bar of a window to the left or right side of the screen until an outline of the expanded window appears.

Release the mouse to expand the window.

Repeat steps 1 and 2 with another window to arrange the windows side by side.

To return a window to its original size click the Maximize button in the window’s title bar and the window expands to full size.

Windows Vista and Windows XP
In Windows Vista and Windows XP, it’s easy to display any two (or more) windows side by side on the desktop, all equally sized. Press and hold the Ctrl key and click two or more of the window buttons on the taskbar that you want to open. Release the Ctrl key, right-click, and then do one of the following:

Windows Vista users, click Show Windows Side by Side.
Windows XP, Tile Vertically command.
