Speeding up Windows by disabling indexing services E-mail

Windows - Windows usability
Written by Thomas

With the indexing services in Windows, Microsoft have tried to help the user find files and content more quickly.

That's a nice attempt, and it may speed up things for some people. However, if you don't search in your files and mails on an hourly basis, the two Microsoft search services are more of a hassle than help. For files without registered filename extensions they don't work at all.

Release notes


  • The package has been updated to contain Coolchris' version of Vortex. He patched it to overcome the issue that Gamespy has been shut down.


  • The latest version of Pyromania for Descent 3 is 1.5.1, but the filenames haven't changed. The new version is incompatible with earlier releases. The recommended installation method is to use the installation program, but a plain zip file is also available.

When a laptop switches itself off during the installation of Windows, this can have temperature reasons.

I know it almost sounds like a joke, but it worked on a Medion laptop.

Descent 3 - Installation, updates, and modifications

Everybody who's done or tried it before knows it already: The complete installation of Descent 3 takes at least a few days, and novice computer users have no chance at all.


descent3mercenarycoversmallWhen the CD installation starts, one of the first misleading things it does is make the wrong suggestions for upgrading DirectX and Flash. This may be the first, but it will by far be the last surprise potential players encounter when installing Descent 3. It's only the beginning of a long journey of outdated information and references. No wonder, the game is 10 years old.

In general, Windows is a relatively stable operating system. Applications on the other hand are not always so reliable, and even some Microsoft applications are pretty good examples for poorly developed software. Sometimes a long running computer should be restarted to clear up resources consumed by leaky and crashy software.

We show you how to implement a scheduled restart in a professional way.

"Mozilla Firefox is an award-winning web browser offering a much superior web browsing experience with benefits such as faster browsing, real privacy and security, and smarter searching."

These are facts we all know. Even Firefox's download functionality is much more sophisticated than the one of other web browsers like Internet Explorer & Co.

If it only was configured properly by default.
