    i just found out winguides 'AlwaysUnloadDLL' is different from this program instructions.

    Winguides
    Open your registry and find the key [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer].
    Create a new sub-key named 'AlwaysUnloadDLL' and set the default value to equal '1' to disable Windows caching the DLL in memory.

    XP-Tweak 1.4
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer
    Create a new DWORD value named 'AlwaysUnloadDLL' and set the default value to equal '1' to disable Windows caching the DLL in memory.

    just wanna which one is correct or both are right and working

    unloading dlls is definately not a good idea for most people.

    when the os is not using a dll. the memory is allready released

    when the os is using a dll, you do not want to unload it, do you

    pretty simple, and this tweak is counter productive

    there just aren't too many actual performance tweaks that do anything for xp that prove beneficial to most people

    they were concieved before x... people just continue to use them as if they are a holy grail

    pretty much the only thing you can really do to help this os is set ou the interface as convienently as possible

    that will speed you more then even valid tweaks

    things like putting your often used utilitiies at your fingertips, and stuff like that

    never the less, this guide is an amazing resource, and it will continue to be an abundant download.

    I can't seem to download this damn thing. I keep getting put to a page that says- Sorry, you cannot leech this file. You must visit the home page here

    doom: I am not sure why this is happening... let me know if you are still having some issues and I will PM you a direct link.

    What browser/additional security apps are you running?

    EP, I am having the same issue with trying to download from the home page. It says that I am trying to leech the file. I have cookies blocked from netshelter.adtrix.com, and my security settings are pretty standard in the medium range... so I'm not sure what the deal is. :confused:

    muzikool: Are you directly clicking the link on the frontpage? I just redownloaded the file, and it seems to be working fine.

    I think I need to link to the file info page...

    Basically I am protecting the link now as sites were linking directly to the file (ie not thru php)
