Turn off Indexing to speed up XP

Post by Streetz on Mon Oct 13, 2008 6:32 am

Windows XP keeps a record of all files on the hard disk so when you do a search on the hard drive it is faster.

There is a downside to this and because the computer has to index all files, it will slow down normal file commands like open, close, etc.

If you do not do a whole lot of searches on your hard drive then I suggest turnning this feature off:

1. Control Panel

2. Administrative Tools

3. Services

4. Disable Indexing Services
