Hey all, long time no see.
I've had my rig with the same W7U install for the past 5 years. I know that's a little too long to have an install, but I have so many important files that would take forever to reinstall and even find in some cases (mostly VSTs for producing audio with strange file names.)
I know the standard procedures to take like msconfig disabling start up apps, service disabling, defragmenting ETC, but I feel there's more steps I could take.
My HD now is 2tb, I have more than enough space right now. I just feel my PC isn't performing as fast as it should. I have a second installation of Windows 8 which runs exactly at the speed, but let's face it, Windows 8 is a mess. I don't like it's interface, but it's performance is 5 times faster than my Windows 7 install.
What else could I do to make my W7 faster in terms of start up and general usage?
Thanks in advance.
