First we'll start with the system.ini file.
Open your system.ini file located at C:\windows\system.ini. Make sure you cut and paste exactly, as entries are case sensitive.|
Under the [386enh] Section, add these lines:
Enables 32-bit disk access|
Increases your 16-bit Direct Memory Access (DMA) channel buffer to 64.|
For Windows 98/SE only. This causes the swap file to be handled the way it was in Windows 95, and forces the use of the computer's RAM first, before the use of the swap file. Big performance increase if you have over 64MB of RAM installed.|
For stabler and faster performance. Replace x with your PCI/ISA card's IRQ number (will work with shared IRQ's). This does decrease system RAM available to programs, recommended only if you have 64MB or more of RAM.
Next, add these lines to your msdos.sys file (be sure to remove the read-only attribute first, else you won't be able to save changes):
Doublebuffer=1 (if you have no SCSI devices, use DoubleBuffer=0 instead)
Let's move on to the config.sys file. The only thing you probably want in there is:
This will improve your computer's stability. If you have a lot of stuff in there, and are leary about deleting it, you can either backup your config.sys file or rem the entries out. To rem a line out, just put "REM" and a space in front of each line (no quotes, of course).
The same goes for your autoexec.bat file, just backup or rem the lines out. The only lines you want in there are:
@DelTree /Y C:\WINDOWS\Temp
This will get rid of all those temporary files that keep piling up in your Windows\temp directory every time you reboot.
