Turning a PC setting off to make computer much faster..???
I remember on the laptop I used to have (XP Pro.), it had 512 RAM and was very slow. Then I had this DVD that I wanted to rip to post excerpts of it on YouTube. Anyway, I had downloaded a program to rip the DVD and after setting it up and launching it for the first time, the program told me that something was set a certain way and because of its being on (as opposed to off I guess, not sure how to phrase this), it was making my computer perform worse than it should and asked me if I wanted to turn this setting off. I did turn it off and it was like night and day - The PC was actually quite fast after that! Anyways, I have no idea what that DVD Rip program was called and also no idea what settings I changed and no longer have that PC. Does someone know how I can chance the setting on my current computer, because it is quite slow for the amount of RAM it has (which is at the PC's maximum amount by the way) and I'd like it to be faster! Thanks.
