An XP tweak

OK so to turn off LUNA and run XP lean & mean. The most immediate and powerful are as follows:-

1) Goto My computer, right click on this icon and from the small floating menu select "properties", next you should see system properties page which has several tabs. From these tabs select "the advanced" tab. On the advanced tab there are a number of different options. Select the "Performance option" i.e. settings button. You should now see a dialogue page called "performance options" which as x2 tabs, first select "visual effects" and now select the button entitled " Adjust for best performance" and by doing this, XP should switch off all the graphics gobbling stuff and then gives you the second or hidden classic interface which is more like windows 2000. Doing this makes a BIG difference to your system and free's up vast amounts of resources as the memory & cpu aren’t bogged down with stupid visual effects and user clutter.

Of course if you don't like it, just reverse the instructions to return to bloatware.
