This week Gail, Joe and Deepak are holding an informal discussion about RAM.

Make a new DWord Value, TCPWindowsSize, then change it to ffff (hex) close and
Also in RegEdit: Disable Paging Executive, Local Machine\System\Current Control Set\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management, DisablePagingExecutive, and Change from 0 to 1.
In Services disable Indexing and Messenger (not to be confused with Windows or MSN Messenger)
