Chapter 36. Upgrading Your PC's Memory > Stretching Your Memory a Little Farthe...

Stretching Your Memory a Little Farther

Upgrading the memory in your PC is definitely one way to improve performance in your PC, but you also want to make sure that you are using the memory you have wisely.

Whatever version of Windows you are running, don't automatically start every program you think you might need. Even though Windows NT/2000/Me/XP do a much better job of managing memory than Windows 95/98, opening unnecessary programs wastes systems resources and degrades performance. If there are programs starting that you did not set to start, check your Startup folder to remove the programs. To remove programs from your Startup folder, simply drag the icon out and place it into another folder.
