Forgotten Tweak

By jrslyrics ·
Okay, so I went on this interview early in my career and got reamed by the hiring manager. He was asking me ridiculous questions for a job that only paid 30K. years later I relaized that it was nothing personal he was probably jsut trying to hook up a friend. But that's besides the point. One of the things that I learned, in an effort to not make this fiasco a total lost was a great little tweak that once applied to the registry of a windows 2000 server, performance would/could increase by up to 40%! Anyone know what i'm talking about! Thanks in advance!

Interesting - I'm experiencing performance problems on my old Dell laptop & have tried most 'performance enhancing' advice/apps. Would this work with W2K Pro wkstn? There is currently no reg entry for this key.

Using XP, I found WaitToKillServiceTimeout in that reg location. It contained 20000, so I reduced it to 2000. Time will tell if it works.
