I want to reduce the intensive disc activity immediately after log
Hi,

I do not have a problem with my Home Premium, as such, but I would really
like to be able to reduce the time during which there is intensive disk and
memory activity which goes on for many minutes after my desktop background
first appears after logging in.

I did try to see what was going on by running Task Manager > Processes, set
to show CPU usages, but the movements were too frequent and too fast for me
to pinpoint any particular program. All I could see were services etc using
large chunks of memory and CPU time.

Are there any unnecessary services or tasks being run? How can I find out?
Or is it a function of the power of my CPU and the amount of memory
installed? Do you think adding more memory will speed things up? I have 1GB
of fast memory and suppose I could add another 1GB. The CPU is another
matter. I do not think that I can upgrade the CPU any more. It would need a
later motherboard and a whole new set of components.

Many thanks for your views
Roy Mayo.

Re: I want to reduce the intensive disc activity immediately after log
The CPU usage and the drive usage immediately after booting to the Windows
Desktop is the SuperFetch cache being populated. This will continue till all
of the RAM has been allocated, either to running programs or cached. I would
you suggest you allow it to do what it is designed to do.

The more RAM you have the longer it will take to do this.
