    6 months ago,i upgraded memory from the factory installed 64 to 256. It works,etc.

    Is there any additional tweaking/ajustments i can do? i read something with virtual memory setting could be done for one thing.

    Unless you have Win95 you likely don’t want to go messing with your virtual memory. And even in that case it is the vcache you would be more interested in tweaking. Win98 and higher handles memory well.

    If you watch your system monitor and are sure you aren’t using your virtual memory you might do the ConservativeSwapfileUsage=1 INI tweak. Unless you are doing graphics, video editing or something RAM intensive you likely aren’t using the virtual memory and the tweak won’t slow your computer. It doesn’t speed it up, it just stops needless writes to the hard drive during idle time. Information if you want to do that: http://www.aumha.org/a/memmgmt.htm

    Don’t let anyone talk you into Cacheman or any of those Mem/RAM/Turbo/Boost type programs. They were written for Win95 and counterproductive in anything since.
