How to Increase Windows 7 Speed : Run Windows 7 Faster with Better Performance
Ever wondered whether you can increase the performance of Windows 7 by running it faster. There is a tool called SilverSoft Speed Freeware 6.35, which will utilize all your full CPU power to run Windows 7 applications faster and thus increase your Windows 7 performance.
SilverSoft Speed is available for free i.e it is a freeware and you need not pay anything to increase your Windows 7 speed. The download size is also small i.e 1.84 MB. As per the download page it works on Win 2000/XP/NT. But I have tested on Windows 7 and it works fine.
When you download, install and run SilverSoft Speed, you will be presented with the following screen.
Click on Settings. You will shown the below screen.
You will be provided with a windows to optimize the speed of your Windows 7 system. The optimization options will be “Fast”, “SuperFast”,”UltraFast”. Depending upon the CPU power and RAM memory you can select the option that is best for you. The recommended option is “Fast”. If your CPU is faster and you have better RAM power, you can select “SuperFast” or “UltraFast”. I have selected “SuperFast” and it is working for me.
You also have a “Game Speed” option where you can increase the performance of running your games. I didnt test this feature, but hope it will work. Using this option, you can enter a value to “increase the game speed”. The value can be in between 100 and 1500. But if you think you have low CPU you can also decrease the game speed.
Note: Do not run SilverSoft Speed along with other system optimizers.
Update(07/05/2010): Please use only “Fast” mode as other modes seem to cause problems.
