Feeling sluggish?

Posted on February 29, 2008. Filed under: Computers, Tips & Tricks |

Ever felt that your computer is behaving sluggish and lazy after running for long hours? Felt that a restart would do the trick? Well you are right. But, there is another way around.

Go to start>run, and type in the box “rundll32.exe advapi32.dll,ProcessIdleTasks” without the quotes. And press enter. This is as good as a restart. It cleans idle processes in the system memory. Your system should return to normal pace after 1 minute, if its nothing serious. You can also create a shortcut with the target set to the above string, so that you don’t have to refer the net always or worse, try to remember it!
