Go over here, register an acct and take the test. When it's done, copy/paste the URL in your reply.

You got to do it from IE and it's only a couple of Active X Controls.

Start with Ccleaner

uninstall all toollbars and programs you do not use with Revo Uninstaller, run disk cleanup, turn system restore down as close to 1 gig as possible, disable indexing and delete all the index files, turn your power scheme to always on or home/office desk, defrag w/ Auslogic, set you browser cache to 50megs and history to 7 days.

There's more that can be done and I'd be willing to help you with ALL of this if you'd like.

How do i do the subjects you said above in bold??

Ok, so i did the Ccleaner , revo uninstaller, and Auslogic. But i got a question. On Auslogic, there 2 options, theres just defragment, and then theres defragment and optimize( use once a week). Whats optimizing do??
