Tweaking WinXP for optimal operation of server no GUI...

Postby InGearX » 2004-11-26 12:09

What features could I turn off and tweak to give my 24/7 server optimal edge on processing? (since it's CPU 800MHz (512MB RAM) it's possible to stall it...)
I only VNC into it (or Remote Admin)...

What I have already done:
- set theme to windows classic
- in "Control Panel" -> system -> "system properties" -> "Advanced" tab -> performance oprtions -> set it to "Adjust to best performance" (OS GUI has no animations, shadows...)
- disabled background
- set resolution to lowest yet usable 1024x768 and 16 bit color (8 bit (256) colors is too harsh on the eyes), refresh rate to lowest (60 Hertz)
- I use StartUp Organizer 2.4 to manage all starting up programs and services.

So what else could I do?

See the screenshot, what's the optimal setting for me?

What other tricks could I do?
Any useful downloads?

Thank you...
