Lots of tricks out there.
Few things that have benefited me...
Always leave your case on, otherwise it gets dusty, and keep it off the carpet.
I dusted my PC... it was so clogged it really improved my gaming.

Another is to increase your RAM, or, increase the size of your page file, guides are online.
Also..


Lot easier tips.
Don't download from limewire or any peer2peer, your PC will just eventually die of aids.
When your PC starts up, I find noobs always have... MSN, Anti-virus, YAHOO, AOL, I-tunes and a whole bunch of noob-cake programs that will lag your PC.
Go to run, type in msconfig.
go to start up and uncheck some things.
If you say 'OMG I LYK I-TOONZ 2 START UP @ START LOL"
then your PC will lag. so, stfu and stop whining!1!


Otherwise, Good luck with your PC.

man i didnt mean offense, just messin around, trowing the old "mac vs. pc" debate in here. i personally dont use either, im a linux guy, but widows 7 was a huge step up.

Tips:
1) Keep your desktop clear
2) increase RAM
3) dont hide stuff in sub-directories too much (makes it harder to search for it)

Yeahhhh I have a mac. I just make sure not to let my download folder get full of crap that I don't want anymore, and I make sure to restart every once in a while to defrag. Other than that, there isn't much I have to do to keep my computer happy. Every time I do DAW work, I make sure to shut everything else down too, that's really important.

Oh man, GP is awful to my ram. It makes everything bad. Sometimes I minimize it, and forget I have a window open (thanks, snow leopard! awesome minimize system! (not sarcasm)) then everything lags til I figure it out.

First off, partition your hard drive.

Ooh, that sounds sexy.

Seriously, though. Start fresh with Vista (or Mac) or whatever on TWO partitions and LINUX or something on another. If you get a virus.. start up in another op system and take care of it. No big deal. Most viruses assume you have C:/Windows and that's it. Log into D:/ and clean that **** up.

p2p downloads are fine as long as you're not stupid. Limewire on the other hand should die in a fire.

There's a reason why things run at startup. It's because lot's of people like just having them run automatically rather than having to start manually every time.

There are plenty of things that can easily be removed from startup though. Also, just having things run on startup won't make your computer lag. It might make it take a little longer to load everything (if you've got a shitty computer), but it won't lag.

Another thing you can do with partitions (not sure how much of an effect it actually has though), is to install your OS to one partition, but then set everything up so that all your program folders, personal files, really everything that's likely to change on a regular basis, on a different partition, that way you're OS files and stuff stay nice and clean and aren't liable to get fragged too badly.
