XP - Tweaking for Games
Can anyone link to a good guide on tweaking XP for games?
Also, how do I control what user processes get loaded into memory on startup? There's some Creative stuff I don't want to delete, but I don't want it on my control panel every time XP starts.
That's the best way to keep control of startup programs. All the crap that every application automatically installs these days in a list waiting to be disabled!
X-setup at http://www.xteq.com/products/xset/index.html is a good all-purpose Windows tweaking utility.
