    you're welcome ? :shrug:
    maybe if you post the problem we could help?
    Also doing a registry backup before doing the tweaks would undo the damage, as could the rollback feature of XP.
    :rolleyes2

    :cry: Dude , A little better attitude would work wonders . These guys answer all ....... I would try fresh install and only do one tweak at a time ( if thats the prob ) i did the tweaks and only used the ones i felt good with . I am a begining tweaker and thats just the way to do it ...slowly... not all at once . Try it if it works keep it and go on , then do the next .... i learned the hard way ... looks like you are too. Do not alienate any who might have a better understanding than you or I , One mans opinon though ............. Overclocking and tweaking are fun but hey if its not broke ... you know : peace2:
    Vulcan chicks are hot .......... Cezch chicks are hot ............ my left palm is not

    This is the usual sort of post made by idiots who do not fully read articles, don't understand what certain tweaks are for and don't make the appropriate backups just in case of probs plus we can do without rude impatient little ****s.

    Don't call us, we'll call you. :hammer:

    Even though you're being particularly rude (I wrote two of the XP guides here), I am willing to help if you just say what your problem is and what particular guide you tried.

    Literally thousands of people have used the tweaks in those guides and I have seen probably only 1% of them have any real problems.

    Even then, if you read the guides carefully, you'll note they tell you to use System Restore and back up before doing any tweaks, so if anything goes wrong you can restore to your original configuration.

    Anyway let us know your problem in a nicer way and we'll try to help.

    There's no way you can roll back your PC without a backup, so we can't just do that.

    What you're describing sounds like a hard drive slowdown. Have you gone through my first XP Guide and carefully applied all the settings? I know it's a pain, but go through the guide and make sure you use the settings I recommend. They are virtually guaranteed to work for everyone.

    It's very difficult to figure out what in particular you've done but I think the best strategy is to make sure you used the tweaks from the guide with the right settings. In particular

    In particular, with 512MB of RAM, set your paging file to a fixed size of 768MB min and max. Make sure you run Cacheman again and use the recommended settings - they're meant for 512MB of RAM. Finally, under Control Panel>System>Hardware>Device Manager go to your Disk Drive and double click on it. Make sure your hard drive has write cache enabled. Go to the IDE/ATAPI Controllers device in Device Manager and check that the controller is set to the highest possible UDMA mode for your hard drive (UDMA5 for ATA100 hard drive for example).
