How To Speed Up Windows 7/ Vista Boot

Windows 7 has become quite a hype lately and it claims to be faster than Vista.. And it is.. Just a lil bit though.. But personally am not content with just a lil bit if i can have the option of going all the way.. And neither should you be.. Go through the tutorial below and find out how you too can speed up your Windows 7 [or Vista]PC..

On a Core 2Duo 2.2Ghz System with 1GB of RAM it took about 15-17 seconds while Vista took just over 20 secs..

1. Type " msconfig " [without the quotes ofcourse] in the Windows 7 start menu search box and hit the " Enter " key..
2. Click Continue if you get a UAC prompt by default.. But if you are using Windows 7 you will not get a UAC prompt..
3. Navigate to the " Boot " and click on the " Advanced Options " button..

4. Put a check in the box named " Number Of Processors " and from the drop down list select the number of processors.. In my case its 2..

5. Click " OK " and restart to see the difference..

Note: This tip is mainly for PC running with multi-core processors.. Microsoft also mentioned the importance of this tweak in their KB959233 article recently. So make sure that you tweak your PC asap..
