12. Improve the on/off speed
If you have 768MB or more of memory you can disable virtual memory. XP kernel memory management is already quite good and virtual memory (pagefile. sys) and hibernation mode (Hiberfil.sys) use different files which can avoid the failure of normal standby and hibernation when the virtual memory is disabled in the Win9x system. On our test system it only took 9 seconds to shut down after a whole day of booting.
Right-click on the 'My Computer' icon and enter Properties-Advanced-Performance-Settings-Advanced-Virtual Memory-Change check No paging file and then click Settings and confirm.
No matter when increasing the memory is the fastest way to increase the relative speed. Therefore if you are not a friend of advanced calculations image processing and DX9 3D games you should consider the memory capacity first when upgrading. .
