I started your recommendations with Microsoft updates. I have it set to automatically update anyways but when I went through Update History I found a slew of updates that failed. Any idea why? Could it be that they aren't for Win7 x64? Any way I can reinstall them? I couldn't find a way to do it manually from the list.

Thanks, Michelle

Okay, I haven't been awake long nor have I finished my morning coffee. While going through comments I realized the article is for Win XP. I have Win7 64bit. Will this all work for me too? Lesson learned, coffee before net!

EDITOR'S NOTE: Yes, pretty much all of these tips apply to Win7 as well.

I have a simple remedy.

Give up Microsoft Windows and join Linux Company, if not dual boot with Windows with Linux.

SimplyMepis has a sweeper to do this and PClinux can be set at install time to clean up at boot time.

Worse come, you reinstall without formatting Home partition.
i used to clean windows by booting up with Linux but I do not advocate if you are new to computing, lest you delete the system files too.

Now i do not have any of these problems, since I do not Microsoft at all.
Join the Linux Band Wagon!

Very nice post and thanks so much for your kind share! Also, I have found a very powerful registry cleaner at Advanced PC Tweaker site to speed up your computer. If you like, you can have a trial with it!

You're wrong on one point: Ram memory isn't going to help the most. Buying an SSD and installing windows (or an other OS) on that is going to help even more.

Example, we have two laptops both running vista (don't ask me, my parents bought it and don't want to reinstall). One has a dualcore 1.3GHz cpu with some crappy onboard videochip and 1GB Ram. And the other has a 1.41GHz dualcore cpu, also some crappy onboard videochip and 2GB Ram. But the first one, which should be slower, has an SSD instead of a HDD like the other, and it's a LOT faster.

Thank you! This was super helpful. I'm always hesitant of going in and changing the registry, so I think I'll avoid that. One question: what do you think about defragmenting the pagefile?

EDITOR'S NOTE: I came across a pagefile defrag program, and tried it on my XP system that I run 24/7. I have not defragged for several months and my pagefile showed no fragmentation. Neither did any of the other system files. Here's the tool:

And the legitimate location of corefoundation.dll file is C:\Program Files.You can corefoundation.dll by a virus or spyware, run an antivirus program to scan your PC. Then remove the infection.

Sleep and Hibernate are big time savers that lots of people seem to be unaware of. I rarely shut my laptop down. At home I use Sleep; takes about a second for laptop to be ready to use. And all my active windows are still open, as I left them. When travelling I use Hibernate, to avoid the risk of the laptop waking while on the move. Hibernate is a little slower than Sleep (because the hard drive is used, rather than just keeping the RAM powered up).

(BTW, Bob, I don't know if this point has already been made. I don't know how to quickly search the 158 comments because they are on multiple pages. Is there an easy way?)
