I think this has been posted elsewhere a couple of times but thanks anyway because it has reminded me to take a proper look at it. :)

I am a little dissapointed by it. I went through the guide and disabled quite a few things yet my CPU usage when my system is idle has not gone down at all. If anything it has actually increased.

What results do other people get when trying these tweaks?

i tried a lot of things to make mine go down because it would go from 8% to 11% and keep going down and up like something was going on in the background so i changed everything to a low priority and it worked.

i also tried to end task on everything it would let me end task on to see if i could figure out what was eating up my processing power.

this aren't going to drop the cpu usage they are just basically taking things out of mem and save a bit of ram, explorer with its luna xml interface is what is using your cycles most likely.

Glad you posted it,

It is about time I had a look at my brothers computer and how it is running XP. (C500 - 64PC100 :o)
