I’m running a computer that I purchased around 2002. It has Windows XP with only 1 gig of RAM. It has been running slow, particularly when switching windows or recovering from a long period of “rest”.
After deciding to play with the settings, I’m blown away with the improvement simply by making a few changes.
Here’s what helps:
Right-click “My Computer” and choose “Properties”.
This brings up the System Properties window. From that, select the “Advanced” tab.
Next, under the “Performance” section, click “Settings”.
The result will be a window called “Performance Options”.
Make the selected options look like this and things should improve!
Please comment if this helped. Enjoy!
