Speedup Windows XP by Memory Trick

Dear Friend,

Here is one of the not so known method for free-up the RAM to make the Windows run faster.When programs run in Windows XP, they frequently use what are called DLLs (Dynamic-Link Libraries).

These contain shared programming instructions and other files like icons, graphics, sounds, etc. that different applications use in order to run. DLLs are stored in RAM whenever the applications load them; when you quit a program, XP is supposed to release the DLL from memory. But some DLLs can get stuck.

Here is the method to mend this up:

Step 1: You can force Windows XP to release DLLs by adding a Registry key.

Step 2: Select Start > Run >Enter regedit >Hit Ok

Step 3: This will open the Registry Editor and navigate toMy Computer -> HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> SOFTWARE -> Microsoft -> Windows -> CurrentVersion -> Explorer.

Step 4: Right click on EXPLORER in the Left Pane, Select New > Key.

Step 5: Name it as AlwaysUnloadDLL and set the default value to 1.

Step 6: Restart Windows to activate the change.

Dear Friend,

To view all of the user accounts:

1. While logged onto the computer, click on Start>Run>and type: CMD > Press Enter

2. From the command prompt window type: net users >Press Enter

This will show you all user accounts that is made onto the computer whether it is hidden or not.

Step to change an account password:

1. While logged onto the computer to an account that has administrative rights, click on Start>Run>and type: CMD>Press Enter

2. Type: net user > then the name of the account> then * > press enter.

For example: Inter commend prompt type: net user administrator * then press Enter; or net user "Love_CAM" * . Put the name in quotes if it contains spaces.

3. From there it should ask for a new password.
Type in your new password (type very carefully - the command window won't display what you type) and once more to confirm it.

If you get the message that the command succeeded successfully you're all set!!

NOTE: This does not work from the "guest" account.
