  1. Found this old article over at but I believe it still applies now. I'm going to try it on my computer and tell my results. Thought some of you guys might need this, I know I do. I hate waiting for my computer to boot.

    Wow... I haven't seen those for a LONG time! The msdos.sys file is 0 bytes in my WinXP PC. I remember that is has to be at least 1024 bytes in older Windows releases. I suppose this tweak is for WinME and below.

    None of these applies to NT. I used these years ago with Win9x.

    My bad, just saw the article and figured some of them might could be applied to XP as well. Guess not, oh well.

    Here is some little ones that I found for 2000 and XP.
    Also, there are other tweaks for the msconfig and whatnot in the article. Maybe these can help a newbie or someone like myself who just hasn't taken the time to do this. :)

    Got both the Win9x & 2k/XP stuff covered in our Startup guide also.

    WinXP loads at around 45 seconds for me and I'm impressed. I wonder if I can make it to 1 second.
