Increase Windows Speed with Paging1-Clicck-fixIt doesnt take long for a new computer, or upgraded operating system, to becomeclogged with new files and programs. Also, the way Windows stores files -- by savingparts of new files wherever there is space, rather than next to the original file -- cannoticeably slow your computer down, even if youve only had it a few months.The best way to improve your computers performances to increase the Random AccessMemory (RAM). RAM is your computers storage space for programs you have open. Itsshort-term computer memory that keeps all the parts of your programs open and availableto use. More RAM means a faster computer, and thats what were going to cover in thisarticle.When your PC is using all its available RAM, it begins to create Virtual Memory. Forexample, if your computer has 512MB (mega bytes) of RAM, and youre using programslike music, internet browser, movies and photos, you might be using say 700MB of RAM-- straining your PC almost 40% over capacity compared to the 512MB available.Windows will fill up the 512MB, and then open up nearly 200MB free space on the harddrive to store the difference. This is called the Paging File os Virtual Memory, andWindows will increase or decrease the size of this file as needed. Sounds nice andefficient, but writing to the hard drive takes a lot of time, so when Windows creates aPaging File, you will notice a decrease in performance.The good news is, you can change the settings for the Paging File to make it easier andfaster for Windows to do its job.To change the virtual memory settings, go to Start -> Control Panel and select System.Push the Advanced tab and under Performance, click Settings.In the Performance popup window, click Advanced, and Change in the bottom panel(Virtual memory). This will open a popup window where you can change the virtualmemory settings.* The simplest setting is to create the Paging File on a different partition and differenthard drive from your core partition (which is usually the C drive on Windowscomputers). This just means that Windows will be able to process more data, moreefficiently, which is exactly what we want.* If you want to get more advanced, you can create a new Paging File on the C drive, andcreate a second Paging File on different hard drive in its own partition. The advantage ofthis method is you will be able to access your data easily in case of a computer crash.* Whichever you are more comfortable with, its best to create the Paging File in apartition with no other data. This will ensure the extra RAM does not get fragmented asWindows stores information for other files and programs.
* If you create one partition, set the initial and maximum sizes to 1.5 times the amount ofRAM you have.* If you have two partitions, select the boot partition -- the first partition -- and put bothsettings (initial and maximum) at 250MB. On the second partition, select Custom Size,then set the initial and maximum values to 1.5 times your PCs regular fixed RAM. Tofind this value, go to Start -> Control Panel -> System. Your RAM is displayed in thebottom row of text, on the right.Increase this settings if you still notice sluggish PC performance.For more information Click link below.1-Click-fix
