A Personal Computer with minimum 64 megabytes (MB) of memory or 128 MB recommended, and Pentium 4 processor requires a Windows-XP Operating System. If we using Windows-98 OS in the above configuration, system will perform more faster.People using Pentium 3computers could use windows 2000 or if they have ram more than 256 MB then they can use windows XP. Nowadays most of the systems have more than 1 GB memory, using XP in that type of computers is a better idea and thus we can perform each tasks at the speed of thought. There is no need to install Vista systems having below 1 GB memory.

4.Partition:-If you are having more number of partitions, it would help your windows more to find required data easily from your hard disk, when you run any file or program. Allocate more than 5 GB for C: Drive(or Windows installed Drive).

5.Defragment Your Hard disks:-

Partitions become more fragmented when you create or delete folders, save new files, delete or move them and they become scattered on you hard drive and as time passes, windows become slower and slower due to time needed by the system to find required file on hard disk. So use Disk Defragmenter regularly, at least once a week.

6.Format and Reinstall Windows:-Formatting your partition every 3 months and installing fresh copy of windows will considerably increase your computer's performance. Many people think that formatting hard drive is not good. That is almost a wrong illusion.

7. Make C: Drive spacious:- Do not save junk, programs, movies, games and almost anything you can on your windows partition that is usually C: It is better you make your ''My Documents'' folder in other drive than C: as well as make also Program Files folder so install everything like Microsoft office e.t.c there not in windows installation drive. Do it and feel the difference.

8.Desktop and Taskbar:- Don't place many applications in the Desktop and Taskbar of your Computer. That will slow the performance:

9. Do this simple tip to increase the performance:

10.Delete unwanted Files:-

Start---->Run-----> %temp%

However we can delete all temporary internet files and unwanted applications, clear the history section and fix registry errors using a simple small size freeware known as "Ccleaner". This is only 2.60 mb size. This software is very effective for deleting junk files and temporary internet files and provides a better user interface to do all cleaning activites in a single step.
