4. Memory Hacks > 37. Pin the Kernel in RAM

Pin the Kernel in RAM

Force Windows NT operating systems to keep themselves in RAM for faster performance.

An excellent performance hack for Windows 2000, XP, and 2003 is a feature that lets you specify whether or not to allow Windows to swap the main portion of itself, the operating system kernel, and swappable drivers out to the swap/pagefile or not.

This hack is intended for systems with large amounts of RAM (512 MB or more) and involves editing the Windows registry or using a system tweaking program. If your system has 256 MB of RAM or less, consult [Hack #30] before taking advantage of this hack.

To use the registry editing method follow these steps:

  1. Start the Registry Editor by opening the Start menu, then selecting Run.
