What to do if your computer’s memory is too small?

Table of Contents

The way to save memory and speed up boot speed on XP system is as follows:

Disable the compressed folder function

If you use WinZip or WinRAR software to open zip files, the following optimization is a pretty good one. Windows XP has a built-in one for ZIP files, so we can browse zip files as folders. However, the system has to use some resources to achieve this function, so disabling this feature can improve system performance. The implementation is very simple, just unregister zipfldr.dll and you’re done.

Click "Start" --- "Run", type regsvr32 /u zipfldr.dll

Reduce boot disk scan wait time

Click "Start" --- "Run", type "chkntfs /t:0", and you will see the effect immediately when you reboot.

Delete system backup files

After the various hardware and software are installed properly, XP actually needs to update the file is very little. Click "Start" --- "Run", type "sfc.exe /purgecache"

Then just enter, you can save 100 megabytes. If you are worried about it, don’t do it, it will only save space, not speed it up.

Turn off the services that come with XP

Click "Start" - "Run", type services.msc to enter XP's own service modification list, in the properties of each service in the list, you can choose "Close", "Manual", "Automatic". alerter - Error Alerter (can be turned off) (can be turned off)
