Windows XP myths

Via Digg I found this gem - XP myths. Turns out many/all of the "go faster" tweaks you here for for Windows XP actually do no good, or even worse.

Particularly interesting was the fact that CCleaner - which you can get via the button on the right - actually slows systems down by deleting "old prefetch files" - bad! Untick that box! Its "registry issues" function is also virtually pointless - there are just no "issues" to fix.

Enlightening! I am of the idea that XP is actually a very well designed system (or, at least after SP2 it is). It seems that Microsoft put a lot of back-end tweaking into it that you're never aware of and you should just let your system get on with it.
