Its been a long time i had customized foobar and

So as i found out a exact method i am posting a

Hacking Vista: Optimize Core OS Components

Hacking Vista: Optimize Core OS Components

The core Windows components can be thought of as the steel beam structure of a skyscraper. This basic structure of the building provides support for all the other components. Windows Vista is a massive program that has various layers of components that support each other. This chapter is going to help you tweak the core components of Windows to increase the overall performance of your computer. Instead of a steel beam structure,Windows Vista’s core components are short-term memory (RAM, a.k.a. volatile memory), long-term storage (your hard drive, a.k.a. non-volatile memory), and the CPU. All the programs that run on Windows, including Windows itself, eventually break down to these three core components.

To get started, you are going to tweak your system’s short-term memory using some techniques and features of Windows Vista to increase the speed of memory operations. Then, you are going to hack another critical component, the paging system, and then speed up your hard drive and adjust how your CPU does work. These tweaks and hacks will help you speed up the overall performance of your computer.

Fighting Viruses in Vista Without Antivirus Programs

Fighting Viruses in Vista Without Antivirus Programs

Way back in November 2006, when Windows Vista went from beta to RTM, Microsoft’s Jim Allchin suggested that users might not need an antivirus program, thanks to the new OS’s stronger security features. While the statement was subsequently clarified until it lost all its meaning, the question remains: Do Vista users really need an antivirus program running in the background at all times?

Vista is full of anti-malware features, and one of the most powerful is User Account Control. The controversial routine blasts users with a confirmation request virtually any time they try to run a program that might alter the state of the system. Vista users, you’ve seen it: when you try to install a program, to launch Device Manager, or run something as Administrator, the screen goes dark, the system plays an alert noise, and a dialog appears asking for permission to proceed.

DDR3 Memory: Not Ready for Prime Time

DDR3 Memory: Not Ready for Prime Time

Time for another memory transition!

Well, not quite. DDR3 memory has arrived on the scene, but the move to DDR3 memory is looking a lot like the transition from DDR SDRAM to DDR2. What’s happening is that newer memory trades off latency for bandwidth.

The recent release of the Intel P35 and G35 chipsets is the beginning of the shift to DDR3, a new memory technology that builds on the foundation built by DDR2. We’ve seen a plethora of DDR2-based P35 and G33 motherboards arrive on the scene, but only a handful of DDR3-based boards. Part of the reason for this is the high cost of DDR3. Right now, 2GB DDR3 kits, consisting of a pair of 1GB modules range in price from $400-$500. Speed doesn’t seem to be a factor, with DDR3 1333MHz pairs costing roughly the same as DDR3 1066MHz kits.

These types of transitions are always painful. Make the jump too early, and you’ll end up spending way too much money for expensive RAM that drops quickly in price—and get to help debug new motherboard BIOSes in the process. Jump too late, and you may end up with a motherboard that can’t take newer CPUs and older memory.
