Increase the Browsing and Downloading speed in Windows Vista

Posted by Shashank Krishna Monday, August 4, 2008


sharethis: To make Windows use multiple Start Menu Columns instead of a single scrolling column (in Programs), like Windows 9x had. Also if you are using Classic Mode in XP:

1. Open RegEdit (by start>run)
2. Go to the key
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ Software\ Microsoft\ Windows\ CurrentVersion\ Explorer\ Advanced
3. On the right pane, right click and create a new string value StartMenuScrollPrograms
(the above string is case-sensitive)
4. Right click the new string value and select modify
5. Set the value to FALSE
6. Close RegEdit.

First click on Start button and type CMD in Run option then press Enter.

At Command Prompt, type the following command and press enter.

netsh interface tcp set global autotuninglevel= disabled

This command will disable the TCP autotuning feature. Now close the command Prompt and restart your computer after any changes to go into effect.
