    What you have is default now, here are some instructions, what you have already done you do not have to do again:
    First bring up REGEDIT, type REGEDIT in your run box and hit OK.
    Under Registry at the top of the box, click on that, now click on Export Registry File, a box will come up asking where you want to export it to, just put it in your C drive, then name it at the bottem of box, Registry. Click on ALL at the bottom so it copies all of your registry.
    Click on save.
    Now if you ever get in trouble or want the old regestry back, bring REGEDIT back up and click on Registry and click on import registry file, go to your C drive and click on registry and click open, reboot and your good to go.
    Anytime you add a new program, backup again, any program, back it up to the same place as the last one, it will overwrite it. If you do not backup after each new program is instaled you will not have those setting's in regestry if you have to backup for some reason.


    Do nothing else in this box as it is the heart of your computer, just what it says above and no more!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    1. You probaly need to PRINT these instructions!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Go to main page on Speedguide, go to patch page (Listed on left)
    2. Download the faster loading of webpages for your OS, download the speedpatch for your OS, becarefull, there are alot of patches on this page. Please read installation instructions for these patchs on patch page.Please read how to install speed patch.
    3. Download the back to default patch for your OS, do not install this patch, just download it in case you ever want to change patches.Please ead instructions on patch on how to install speed patch.
    4. Download Vtcp386 Fix patch if you are running WIN 95,98 or 98SE and install (Big V). Additionally, if your OS is Win 95, you will also need to download and install the vtcp386 .zip (small v) and the Windows Socket Two patch.
    5. Go to www.dslreports.com/tools bookmark this page as you may wish to return. Run tweak tester, check the verbose box, turn off firewalls, if you have one, copy the results by highlighing everything in the box with your mouse, then hit Ctrl & c, with your key board, come back to Speedguide and in same post you were in reply, when box comes up , cursor blinking at start of box hit Ctrl & v, this will copy results in box so I may look at them.
    7. I do not recommend adding any other patches, all these tests change by the minute so don't be fooled an start adding patch after patch.
    8. The best time to test for speed is early in the morning when no one (or not many) people are on the net.
    9. Nothing should be running during any test, no virus stuff, firewalls,
    and always clear (Delete, no this will not harm your system) your temp internet files before each test, not once during testing, after each test.
    10. Do not add other speed patches on top of each other, always go back to default before trying another patch, I am aware of only one patch that will remove previous patch without having to return to default.
    11. In the future, here are some other sites you may wish to visit, go to www.testmyspeed.com. Please bookmark that page as well as www.pcpitstop.com so you may return. Also another good dowload site would be www.happypuppy.com click on 10 demos and a large download file, do not download the whole file, just most of it.
    12. You may in the future wish to go to www.AnalogX.com and download Net Stat Live, run this while downloading a large file.
    13. Please take your time and good luck. I would suggest at least 128 RAM and read up on all this, but be care full.
    14. The most accurate way of testing speed is downloading large file as explained above from somewhere like www.happypuppy.com (not all of it, just most of it). All other speed test sites will vary, www.AOL.com is another fast server, you may download from this site also, remember to delete temp internet files before doing test. Try both sites as 1 may be having problems.
    When refering to speed Kb is Kilobits, KB is Kilobytes Divide by 8 kilobits to get kilobytes.
    Also you may wish to download Dr.TCP from www.dslreports.com to adjust MSS, MTU. RWIN and other numbers in future, this is for advanced people and I do not recommend changing any numbers that patches put in.

    RUN DEFRAG AT LEAST EVERY 2 DAYS
    People runnng WIN 98 or 98SE should run System File Checker once a week to make sure you have all files, all you really care about should be the Windows files and subfolders. To get to this, start, programs,accessories,system tools, system information. Click on tools in System information and it will be there. More information about it in Help.
