What is the proper way of debugging a slow Windows installation?
I recently feel my Windows machine slows down a lot.
Formatting is not an option as I cannot afford the time. I diasbled all I can in
msconfig startup. I also have defraged the computer and canceled all fancy Windows graphics.
What else can be done?
Assume that my hardware cannot be changed and the System can't be formatted. I see many programs that promise to help but all of those look suspicious. I use both XP and 7
This is what I've done so far:
msconfig-> Startup -> Disable all -> OK -> OK
Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Performance -> Defragment -> Analyze -> Defrag
Right Click My Computer -> Properies -> Advance -> Performance -> Adjust For best Performance
Open the computer case and removed dust, as per this Microsoft guide.
- Ran CCleaner.
