Most of you will have at some point read or even used Baddass' excellent Windows Performance, Optimization, Security and Tweaking guide. Now it is getting a bit old I think and there is this new version of Windows called Vista or something apparently. So I've taken on the task of sprucing the guide up with a view to replacing the current guide with a newer sticky that has hints and tips for XP and Vista. Now the problem is that I don't have Vista so I don't know any hints/tips etc that you clever bunch may know for Vista. Also the Windows XP hints might still be valid for Vista but follow a different process compared to XP so please let me know if an XP tip works in Vista but follows a different procedure. So I call out to you OcUKers brave enough to use Vista! Help me! No seriously, if you have any hints, post 'em here, I will collate them and amalgamate the two threads into a brand new super hybrid, all conquering Windows Performance, Optimisation, Security and Tweaking guide. This thread isn't just for Vista tips, oh no. Any tips for XP that you use and think someone else might find useful and aren't already in the guide, post 'em here and I'll get onto working them into the guide. Anyone silly enough to post a tip that is already in the original thread will be reported to the Dons, arrested, shot at dawn and perhaps even banned as well. Do NOT attempt to confuse me by making me add something that is already in the guide OK? So read the original guide (link at the top) and see if you think of anything new or perhaps a link you know of to complement a tip. Thanks for reading this and I hope we can update Baddass' thread and bring it up to scratch for 2007/2008.
