don't dare to disable Superfetch or Security Center like this article says! You may see an increase on ram performance but the overall system will run much more slower. But if you have an antivirus like 95% of them now come with anti-spyware too so disable the windows defender instead (not the Security Center).

Exactly, and if anyone doing this has any doubts just leave it be. Not worth messing up your PC just for a half of a second off of a load time or something dumb.

Why don't people just use CCleaner?

Unless your pc is seriously lacking in power, these tweaks really aren't worth it.

true. I bought a 60gb OCZ Vertex in 2010 for $180. I I paid the same price for a crucial 128GB. I bought an OCZ solid 3 120GB for my laptop. 60Gb for $80. The price is still high, but it is the single best purchase where I have seen such a different how my computers perform. More so that my CPU or memory. I upgraded to an i7 with *gb of ram. Outside gaming, I see no difference to my old AMD.
