    Default Want faster gaming?

    This article describes how to perform a clean boot procedure to start a Windows Vista-based computer or a Microsoft Windows XP-based computer. When you use a clean boot procedure to start a computer, Microsoft Windows starts only basic devices and services when it starts.

    When you start Windows by using a regular startup, several programs start automatically and run in the background. These programs may include third-party antivirus programs and system utility programs. These programs may interfere when you install, run, or use a game or program such as Microsoft Flight Simulator or Microsoft Streets and Trips. If this occurs, you can use a clean boot procedure to prevent these programs from starting automatically. You must be logged on as an administrator or as a member of the Administrators group to complete a clean boot procedure. If the computer is connected to a network, the network policy settings may also prevent you from completing the clean boot procedure.
    Vista Users

    1. Click Start button, type msconfig in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.

    2. On the General tab, click Selective Startup.

    3. Under Selective Startup, click to clear the Load Startup Items check box.

    4. Click the Services tab, click to select the Hide All Microsoft Services check box, and then click Disable All.

    5. Click OK and restart.

    XP :thumb: Users

    1. Click Start, click Run, type msconfig in the Open box, and then click OK.

    2. On the General tab, click Selective Startup.

    3. Under Selective Startup, click to clear the following check boxes:
    Process SYSTEM.INI File
    Process WIN.INI File
    Load Startup Items

    4. Click the Services tab, click to select the Hide All Microsoft Services
    check box, and then click Disable All.

    5. Click OK, and then click Restart.

    just a nice tip for vista users, use win+r instead of open the startmenu, locate the run box and type the command.
    Win+R is basicly the same

    Thanks for the tip. I'll definitely try it out.
    So does this mean like, there will be no lag for games like CS:S and Team Fortress 2?

    No, this just turns off programs that are not needed from eating up your CPU power. Most of the time you will hardly notice a difference. Just depends on how much stuff you have running in the background.
