    I was reading up on alot of the tweeks that ppl use for WinXP and I was just wondering if anyone had a collection of tweeks specificly for Windows 2000. One tweek I would like to see for Win2K is faster boot up......right now my system boots up at 1m - 1m 20sec and thats kinda long. Thanks for any responces! :cool:

    Not flamming you or anything, but you probably would be better off looking for W2K tweaks in other forums, like neowin, for example. If you already knew about that other forum feel free to disregard this post. Just trying to help is all.

    Just for further info, most of the tweaks for XP will also work for W2K, not all, but some,

    Microsoft makes a program called bootvis, but Im almost sure it only works in win XP :rolleyes:

    You can read about it HERE

    The last time I rebooted was over a week ago....9 days + as you can see in the file attachment and it was 34 secs or so.

    You should consider installing XP, and joining us ;) :p

    trust me, I wont be goin to XP anytime soon.....lol. I tried WinXP twice and I got rid of it each time not long after....I am content with Win2K cause it has the NTFS file system like XP, without all of XP's bugs.

    No offence to WinXP users by the way, Its a great OS but its just not for me! :cool:

    does anyone else know if Boot-Vis is only for XP or if it'll work for Win2K as well?
