Windows XP Boot Help
My computer has been running exremely slow, so I have been doing cleaning up. I've been doing maleware and spyware fixes, managing RAM, and of course, deleting processes, and then nuking the programs of them from the hard disk so they can no longer be fetched, or ran in the RAM for more important things. Here is the problem with it though, Windows upon booting still tries to fetch the files from the disk into the RAM even though they don't exist, and this will slow boot up more than it needs to. Is there a way to control what programs get loaded into RAM so boot up will be faster (and run faster when booted)? By the way, I know what processes and files not to delete, and which ones are important. I accidentally terminated the explorer.exe process, and the computer looked like it was seizing and having a stroke. That was fun.
