Published by Sajid

Windows Add/Remove Programs and Hard Disk Maintenance

4. Add/Remove Programs

Unused programs can take up space in your hard drive that can cause your system to slow down. It is best to get rid of them. To do this we need to go to Add/Remove programs section of Windows XP, to check out what programs are installed on your computer. Launch Add/Remove programs by clicking Start>Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs

5. Hard Disk Maintenance

One of techniques to keeping your system running fast is to maintaining your hard disk drive since this is where all the files that you access reside here. Windows has tools in helping you maintain your hard drive. These are:
  • Disk Cleanup
  • Disk Error-checking
  • Disk Defragmenter

Cool re:misconfig

I have tried to uncheck the entries their but windows automatically goes to safe mode and keeps reminding to go back to earlier state.So I am quite certain that this piece of advice is wrong.You can't touch any entries in msconfig directly.

You could have mentioned few utilities to help maintain the harddisk.

There is no problem using msconfig, that's what it is for. You must be doing something wrong. As for your 2nd point that is what Google is for.

make sure you are not unchecking items under the services list. Removing too many of those will send windows bonkers. The startup list is simply items which are invisible to your startup list under all programs, I edit this list weekly.
