Streamlining Vista

These are the performance tuning steps I usually take after a fresh install of Windows Vista:

  1. Disable System Restore
  2. Adjust for best performance (System Properties-Advanced Tab, Performance)
  3. Disable User Account Control
  4. Pick one or the other: Google Desktop or Windows Indexing (most Dell computers have Google Desktop installed by default)

These are great actions to take on slower and/or less graphically capable computers. Everything just seems to pop once these changes are made. Far more responsive…and much more of a Windows XP look and feel.
