Windows Vista comes with lots of new features. These new features take lots of system resources and thus the system becomes slower day by day.

We should avoid some features from which our windows can be faster than before. Below are some services which are useless, by disabling these services windows will be faster than before.

1. Disable indexing

Windows Vista’s real-time search option needs an index of the contents of your hard drive to be created and constantly updated. It reduces the search time and makes it faster.

But this index updating process automatically runs on the background which takes a good amount of system resource. Naturally, it will slow down the overall system performance.

Now you can configure and or disable this indexing feature. Open vista control panel and click system and maintenance than open the indexing options.

Here on the indexing options dialogue box, you can control which drives and folders it will index. By going to the advanced option you can also choose specific file types for indexing.

2. Stop Auto Start applications

Stop and disable unwanted auto startup items. These items unnecessary start automatically whenever Windows starts and reside in memory. To disable startup items go to windows defender then open tools followed by software explorer.

Now go down to the list and in the category box, click startup programs. Here you can disable unnecessary programs just by un-checking those.

3. Defragment Regularly

4. Turn off visual effects

You can make Vista a bit faster by turning off visual effects. There are around 20 inbuilt visual effects are there in vista. You can unselect them manually one by one.
