    Wow that TuneXP proggie is from May 2004 already, and works fine with Vista, nice to know. However, I was wondering, isn't there such a feature included in any tweaking program made specially for Vista?

    Anzial...

    The thread is not even three days old and weve asked people to not just throw things in the open. You have the knowledge to understand blackviper but many do not and will jump right in and supertweak their system not knowing the ramifications.

    If you have an idea, by all means PM me; the thread is created for all levels of users. If its used, you will get credit.

    If you don't like the thread, there are tons others.

    Synthesia,

    No, for some reason there is no other Vista specific freeware that accomplishes this so well.

    unlike you, flamenko, i believe ppl can decide for themselves what they can and cannot do. Besides, blackviper's site is for ALL levels of users. but by all means, continue rep-, i don't care.

    I'm getting "failed to get data for Start" error message when I start TuneXP. No processes showing after doing the ultrafast booting. This is running as administrator. Without that, I'm getting "failed to get data for DisablePagingExecutive"

    any ideas?

    Ignore the first little msg box. You need to open Task Manager after it says its complete and to wait until defregging is completed and watch the two processes (defrag.exe/NTFSDfrg.exe) When they dissappear, you are done.

    As for the last I am unsure.

    Make sure that "Show all processes from all users" is checked and they should be there. Also, if they arent there, click on 'Image name' which will put everything alphabetically. They take 20-30 min to complete.

    1) "failed to get data for Start" will happen on vista because this is not XP.
    2) because of this, you should use ONLY the "ultrafast booting" option, many of the other stuff will be broken by the differences in vista.
    3) try opening taskman first, then sort by name, scroll to around the d's then run the defrag. If no defrag anything shows within 10 mins, reboot, uninstall the program, and reinstall the program, make sure you select the windows partition and give it one more try. If it doesn't work, then you might be out of luck until someone can reproduce and fix this bug.
