in Value


First, speed up Vista startup
First: click “Start” > “Run”, then type “regedit” in the Open box, then click “OK” to open the Registry Editor. Find  ”HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Control Panel \ Desktop”.
1. find “AutoEndTasks”, set its key to 1;
2.  find “HungAppTimeout”, set its value to 200, the default is 50000;
3. Find “MenuShowDelay” primary key, set its value to “0″ so that you can remove the menu delay;
4 find the “WaitToKillAppTimeout”, set its value to 1000, the default is 20000.
Second: find “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ System \ CurrentControlSet \ Control”.
The value of “WaitToKillServiceTimeout” is set to “200″. After these settings, the speed of startup will faster than a lot.
Finally: Navigate to the branch of “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SYSTEM \ CurrentControlSet \ Control \ Shutdown”, then in the right window create a  new string value called “FastReboot” and set its value to 1. Quit Registry Editor and restart the computer to take effect. You Vista start up much faster.
Second, reduce Vista boot time of scroll bar
To speed up Windows startup‘s the blue scroll bar, open the registry editor, then navigate to “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SYSTEM \ CurrentControlSet \ Control \ Session Manager \ Memory Management \ PrefetchParameters” and find “EnablePrefetcher” primary key at right, set the default value from 3 to 1. The time of the scroll bar will be reduced.
Third, clear the unused DLL files
Open the registry and navigate to: “HKKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion”. Add an item “AlwaysUnloadDLL” to the  ”Explorer” and set the default value to 1. (Note: If the default is set to 0 , it means it disables this feature.)
Fourth, open the Startup optimization
Navigate to: “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Dfrg \ BootOptimizeFunction”, and set the value of the Enable to “Y”.
Fifth, speed up broadband
Windows Vista is defaulted to retain 20% broadband, which many have no great effect for individual users. Why not make full use of broadband. Click “Start” > “Run”, type “gpedit.msc” and then click OK to open the Group Policy Editor. Find “computer configuration” > “Administrative Templates” > “Network” > “QoS Packet Scheduler”, then select “to retain the bandwidth limit” at right, then select “Properties” to open the dialog box of properties of broadband limit, select “disabled”. This will release the reserved broadband and we can fully use Internet broadband.
Sixth, optimize the visual effect
Right-click the “computer” on the desktop or Start menu, select “Properties”, in the left Category View select “Advanced System Settings”, click “Advanced”, in the “Performance” tab click “Settings”, then pop-up “Performance Options” window, in the “Visual Effects” tab click “Adjust for best performance”, then “OK”. You can get rid of the menu‘s animation effects.  You will feel your Vista speed is faster a lot.
Seventh, reduce the delay time of disk detection
Execute commands “chkntfs / t: 0″ in a DOS environment to reduce the waiting time of disk detection, which means the wait time is 0 seconds.  If not specify 0 or other number of seconds and just execute chkntfs / t, it shows the current settings.
