Just for the record. I stumbled upon these pages on the internet and the auther seems very well educated when it comes to tweaking a system.
I know most of us are allways looking for the most optimal settings.
Well: this guy is actually explaining if something is a tweak or not, and if so: what it is meant to do. Next thing he looks into, is explaining why it is usefull on some windows versions, and why it has the opposite effect for other versions., and so on and on… very nicely done and available for everything from XP to WIN8.1.
I do not say this is the nr.1 place to be, but this is definitly a very thourough oversight of do’s and dont’s.
You will be probably thinking more then one time: o jeez… i crippled my system…
have fun reading it. (it are A LOT of pages…)
