Here's one: use msconfig from the Run menu. This lets you control which programs are allowed to run at start up. Very useful if your computer is running a little slow -- it's amazing how many otherwise good programs want to either be running in the background all the time or check for updates every single time you turn on your computer.

this is a tip on how speed up menus in XP Go to Start -- Run -- Regedt32 Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop Locate the key called "MenuShowDelay" and it is probably set to 400. Change that value to 150. Reboot your computer. You should notice a slight increase in the speed of your menus for more tips you can visit this blogs: http://it-aid.blogspot.com http://blogging-for-starters.blogspot.com

I use Windows. I have used it for about 6 years now. I'm not sure if there are any tricks to it or not. I do know that you have to make sure to do your Windows updates and keep your computer up to date.
