					How to Speed up your PC by this simple RAM tweak

Well this is a little tuto or in other terms tweak for the techs. SO… Faster PC ,
first of all why a faster PC ?? Well its not a question of a faster PC but this is more
a question of when. If you’ve been running a large application (or several large
applications, maybe a game, Photoshop, something like that) the RAM can get
taken up quickly. Even when you close down these programs, RAM can still be

You’ll notice this effect at the end of the day. When you first power-up your PC
it’s running smoothly, by the end of the day it gets sluggish. Yes, you can get
various softwares to solve this. May of which costs but when free things matters,
heres how a simple trick can work (in both XP and Vista)

   •   Open up Notepad
   •   Type in

   •   MYSTRING=(80000000)
   •   Save the file as MEMORY.VBE (or RAM.VBE if you like…just remember
       the .VBE)
   •   Make sure you save the file to your DESKTOP.
   •   Just double-click the newly created file on your desktop whenever your
       PC seems sluggish. It will give your RAM a much needed boost.

Not that if you have less than 128mb of RAM (do you really? If so then Oh! wake
up you need an upgrade) change the 80000000 to 160000000 and it should work
the same.

How To Get Email Address

There is now a free and simple way to get an email address instead of
the regular email address. Previously the only way to get one was
to be an MSN subscriber.

To get an email address just use this link:

Check Download Links Code:
Then just register as normal.

It's also a Live account (for Xbox, etc).

I use it for MSN only, good to remember the address

Speed your Pc 100% great...

This makes your computer faster by using part of your HD space as virtual
RAM. ( Takes around a gigabyte of space,when initialized. but still speeds up
your computer greatly!)

If your HD has less than 20GB of free space left then don't do this.

Alright, this is how you do it:

1. Right Click on "My Computer" icon and select "Properties".
2. Click on the Advanced tab.
3. Under Performance, click Settings.
4. Then click the Advanced tab on the button that pops up.
5. Under Virtual Memory at the bottom, click Change.
6. Click the Custom Size button.
7. For the initial size (depending on your HD space), type in anywhere from
1000-1500 (although i use 4000), and for the Maximum size type in anywhere
from 2000-2500 (although i use 6000).
8. Click Set, and then exit out of all of the Windows.
9. Finally, restart your computer.
10. You now have a faster computer and 1-2gb of virtual RAM!
I did this personally and it worked great for me.


This trick work with AMD and Intel

first go to start and then Run
and go to regedit

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Session
Manager\Memory Management

in the right side you will see SecondLevelDataCache clik modifier and change it
to .....

writ 256 if your processeur is
Intel pentium 3 E
Pentium 4
AMD k6-3
AMD Thunderbird
Cyrix 3
Pentium 2 Mobile

writ 64 if your processeur
AMD Duron

writ 512 if your processeur is
AMD K6-2
Pentium 2
Pentium 3 Katmai
AMD Athlon

writ 1024 if your processeur is :
Pentium 2 Xeon
Pentium 3 Xeon

and 128 for processeur
Pentium Celeron
Pentium Celeron 2

Actually this tweak is completely useless on newer computers, all it does is set
the L2 cache size. Here's a better explanation of it:

Myth - "Adjusting the SecondLevelDataCache Registry value to match your
CPU's L2 Cache size will improve performance."

Reality - "If you do not set this registry value, Windows will use the HAL
(Hardware Abstraction Layer) for retrieval of the L2 cache size automatically on
boot up. If this fails, a default value of 256KB is used. This is where the myth that
XP can only use 256KB of L2 cache comes from. But it's false. The
SecondLevelDataCache is designed as a secondary source of cache size
information for computers on which the HAL cannot detect the L2 cache. The
HAL is able to retrieve the L2 cache size from any CPU using the set-associative
cache design (Pentium II or newer), it's only the relatively few older processors
with direct-mapped L2 caches that the HAL will not recognize. This tweak only
applies to older computers (Pentium I or older) with over 64MB of memory. On
these older systems, this tweak can improve performance by about 0.4%.
Pentium II and later CPUs are not affected."

Open Regedit by clicking Start>Run and type in regedit.
Once Regedit is open, click the plus symbol next to the HKEY_CURRENT_USER
folder, the plus symbol next to Control Panel, and then click the Desktop folder
icon to display its contents. In the right pane, double-click MenuShowDelay to
change its value. (This Registry location is referred to as
LAY.) The default Value Data is 400, or 4/10 of a second. Change the Value Data
to 0 for the least delay, and click OK. This will make menus appear instantly on
your computer instead of having a delay.

L\FILESYSTEM. Right-click Filesystem, select New, and DWORD Value.
Rename NewValue#1 on the right-side pane to DisableNTFSLast-AccessUpdate.
Double-click this new entry, change the Value Data field from 0 to 1, and then
click OK. This disables the constant updating of the dates when a file or folder
were last updated. This will speed up the system.
NTVERSION\EXPLORER. Create a new DWORD Value called DesktopProcess,
and set its Value Data to 1.
Expand HKEY_CURRENT_USER, expand Control Panel, and click Desktop.
Double-click the AutoEndTasks string and change the value to 1. This causes all
of the components of the explorer to run in one process, making your computer
There is a caveat for some users here. Do not make this change if you are not
running at least a Pentium processor and 16 MB of physical memory.

Expand HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, expand SOFTWARE, expand Microsoft,
expand Windows, and expand CurrentVersion. Right-click Explorer, expand
New, click Key, and name the new key AlwaysUnloadDLL. Click
AlwaysUnloadDLL, double-click the Default string, and change the value to 1.
Windows tries to keep some DLL's in memory when the program uses them. If a
user has low memory, this can cause performance issues.

Expand HKEY_CURRENT_USER, expand Control Panel, and click Desktop.
Double-click the HungAppTimeout string and change the value to 1000. Now,
double-click the WaitToKillAppTimeout, string and change the value to 2000.
This sets your system up to more efficiently handle application hangups. It also
will optimize the amount of time a system takes to close a program when you try
to end Windows.

Expand HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, expand System, expand CurrentControlSet,
and click Control. Double-click the WaitToKillServiceTimeout string and change
the value to 2000. This optimizes the time that it will take for Windows Services
to close when the system is set to shut down.

Expand HKEY_CURRENT_USER, expand Control Panel, click Desktop, and
double-click the MenuShowDelay string in the right-hand pane. Change the
value to 100. This will cause Desktop menus to appear almost instantly.
Close regedit.

Set Recycle Bin to 1-3 percent of the hard drive space. To do this, right click on
the Recycle Bin. Select properties. Move the slider down to the desired amount
and click Ok. By default, the Recycle bin takes up too much of your space.
Tips & Warnings


This tutorial will help you get the most out of your connection while
downloading from rapidshare premium account. As I see alot of user are not
downloading at fullspeed.

Now there are alot of download accelerator out there but I found that this one
works the best.

Download Internet Download Manager 512 lastest release:
Check Download Links Code:
Install the program and patch/crack it.
Launch the program.

Now we need to tweak it a bit.

You can setup anyway you want it. From monitoring your browser to not at all.
This is the way i set mine up as it gives me fast access to the download links
which I will explain through out this tutorial. So I suggest you copy my settings
and see how it works first then you can play around once you get the hang of it.

I set mine to default. Here you can set which file type the download manager
will catch when you click download.
Set the directory where your file will be saved.

Now this is important. Make sure you check "Start downloading immediately
while display.... " You want this because when you start a link, the manager will
check and see if it's broken or not. If it's broken you will get a dialog that shows a
broken .html link. If the link is good then you get the file type and size. More on
this a little later on...

This will determine how fast you will download. Make you sure you select your
correct Connection speed. I have mine on Lan/10mb because I'm on a 10mb
connection. Set your approriate speed. If you don't know your speed then run a
test here at Next set the "Default Max Conn. number to 16. If you
have connection issue with 16 then set it to 8. But so far I have found no problem.
16 will defenitly be your best bet for a fast download speed.


No need to set proxy since we have a premium account already.

Here you will enter your username and password. Click on NEW then select http
, enter and enter your login info

Who the hell is still on Dial Up? I left this tab untouch.

I don't care too much about sounds. But you can customize your own if you like.

Ok you're ready to start downloading. Lauch IE or Firefox

Now for the downloading part. Highlight all the links then right-click and select
Download with IDM
Next you will get a window like this. Remember how I said Make sure you check
"Start downloading immediately while display.... ". This now acts as your broken
link checker. If the link is dead then you'll get that 512kb of html document. If the
link is good then you should get the size of all the files. It should look something
like this.

Now Select where you want it to download and check select all or just the file
that you need.

Now click ok and your download manager will look like this:

Ok we are ready to download...almost. Click on the "Schedule" icon at the top
and go to the "File in queue" tab. Here you can select how many files can be
downloaded at the same time. The Ideal setting is 2-3 since 1 connection won't
always use all the bandwidth. But you should select 1 first to see how fast it's
downloading compare to your regular download speed. Click Apply and close
when you're done.

Alright let's start downloading at MAX speed! Click on the Start Queue Icon and
BAM! You're downloading as fast as your connection can give you!

I hope this tutorial will help some of you get the best out of your connection. I
normally get 250-500k kb/sec while downloading regular. But with IDM I get a
stable 1.3MB kb/sec on a 10mb cable.

How to lock a folder with a password without a

Let me show you how to lock a folder without a software!

1- make a new folder ( name it as you like )

2- inside this folder make a ( TXT ) file & copy inside it this (the entire thing)

Quote: cls
title Folder Private
if EXIST "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}" goto
if NOT EXIST Private goto MDLOCKER
echo Are you sure you want to lock the folder(Y/N)
set/p "cho=>"
if %cho%==Y goto LOCK
if %cho%==y goto LOCK
if %cho%==n goto END
if %cho%==N goto END
echo Invalid choice.
ren Private "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}"
attrib +h +s "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}"
echo Folder locked
goto End
echo Enter password to unlock folder
set/p "pass=>"
if NOT %pass%== password here goto FAIL
attrib -h -s "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}"
ren "Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}" Private
echo Folder Unlocked successfully
goto End
echo Invalid password
goto end
md Private
echo Private created successfully
goto End

3- After u copy the Commanding go to line 23 (or try using shortcut- CTRL+F and
type password to locate the line) u will find this word : password here (Change it
with any password u like.) is :

eg: if NOT %pass%== narnia1234 goto FAIL
//so ur password here becomes narnia1234 .//

4- After that go to ‘save as’ & name this file as "locker.bat "

5- Now back to the folder & u will find a ( LOCKER ) commanding.

6- Double Click on it & u will find a new folder (Private )

7- Ok ,, now copy what u want in this "private Folder" & after that come out of
the folder, and Double click on locker again. It will open and ask if you want to
lock your folder? Y/N ?

8- Type Y. your private folder will dissapear.

9- If you want to UNLOCK your folder ,go to (locker) & type your pass and you
will see your private folder.

it not only hides the fodler, but incase, u unhide all files... and try opening it
without entering password, it'l take u to the control panel...

Also, if u want to store files on your Pen-Drive, u can use this script. No
Software Required

Incase u delete your Locker file (just in case), then u can make a new one (but
with the same password) and open it from that.

Alternatively, u can keep this locker file somewhere else, and when u want to
open ur folder, only then bring it back to that place ..
