Windows Tweaks
Right-click My Computer, select the Performance tab, click on the File System button. Change the machine role to Network Server. Instead of rebooting your PC, go to the Start button, Run..., type in REGEDIT then go to to this key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\FS Templates\Server\. Make sure the NameCache and PathCache are set to these binary values: NameCache - a9 0a 00 00 PathCache - 40 00 00 00. Exit Regedit and reboot. This will drastically enhance the use of upper memory, especially in machines with more than 32MB of RAM.
Speed Up the Launch of Windows
Edit c:\MSDOS.SYS with a text editor. Add the following under the [options]: Logo=0 Bootdelay=0 You may leave the Logo value 1 to keep the boot up splash screen. When you restart, hold down the shift key while you click on OK.
This will restart only windows and is much quicker. If you cannot save the msdos.sys after you have edited it,
right click it, click on properties, uncheck the read only box. Now repeat the steps above.
