XP Tweak?
« on: October 14, 2010, 07:32:25 AM »
How effective is this XP tweak. My Computer>Properties>Advanced>Performance>Setting>Adjust for best performance> Custom> Check only last 2 i.e. Use drop shadows for icon & Use visual style on windows & buttons?

This makes the browser fonts lighter & less sharp...can that be corrected by checking some other option?

Hoping to hear your experienced views.

Regards!

The tweaks do make some things faster like opening menus but whether they are necessary or not is debatable.

Comparative screenshots would help. I use Chrome and don't find the fonts light.

not sure if starting tens of topics not Avast related,and not security related even in the general topic section is quite acceptable here. Yezinki, use Google sometimes and better, go to the appropriate forums to ask your question, each software company having its own forums generally. I mean this is no computer course section, if you go on that way and if the admins here just let go as usual, this section will be filled up soon with stuff that doesn't interest people who came to talk about Avast and Windows security in the first place. I mean seriously you can't ask here for help about every single detail that you don't understand in Windows and third party software.

Well, if everyone is asking every computer-related question we could run into troubles. ;)

I agree, all though i have been responding to some of Yezinki question's there certainly has been alot of them which i feel could have been answered by googling and not clogging up the forum as much, we must have rebuilt his computer by now  ;)

What's the big deal ??? If you're tired of his or any one else's questions, simply don't answer. :)
Maybe someone else will or, if no answers are given, the post will eventually disappear.  ;D

Yes you have rebuilt my computers, for which I am grateful to all Avast members who contributed positively to my threads, but not you. If you are bit software literate stop acting smart, witty, cynical & arrogant.

Sorry Logos but the only wrong Forum is one where you can't get any good answers.
That's something that's never been a problem on this forum in all the years I've been here.
It's actually one of the reasons why I've been here this long.  :)

I am very grateful & thank all Avast members who contributed by their recommendations based on their practical, tried tested experiences.
