      Another thing which some people dont realise is that, If you connect with ETHERNET you should set your NIC to 100Mbps/FULL Duplex. Changing this setting mean your computer will get files faster from the router!

      Because I didn't know a great deal about this subject I did a bit of reading before I posted this. What I read is to manually hard code the speed and duplex on your NIC is quote "very, very wrong" and all major manufacturers recommend auto-negotiation. It seems that before 1998 manufacturers used different settings which required hard settings. Since the 802.3u standard this is no longer necessary. In fact hard setting is actually inhibiting the newer gigabit ethernet. Out of curiosity I checked my Realtek onboard Nic and my Marvel Gigabit Nic and they are both set by default to auto-negotiation.

      if you want Manually Clean Out The Temp

      Click on Start and then Run.

      In the text box in the Run window, type %Temp% and click OK. A folder full of files and other folders will appear.

      you can erase the entire files in the folder

      This simple operation will clean out the junk that helps to slow your system down, it uses Windows own recourses

      1 Click your start button on your desktop (bottom left)

      2 In search type cmd , this will bring up your jump list and you will see the black cmd Icon right click on it and in the drop down menu click (run as administrator)

      3 In the black cmd (command prompt) window type cleanmgr/sagerun:1 and press Enter/Return on your Keyboard, the cleaning process will run.

      4 After the process has run (a matter of seconds) in the cmd window type exit and press Enter/Return, the cmd window will close and your system has been cleaned.

      My OS is Windows 7 x64 - (works in XP)
