    Will deleting one or both of these CLSID {} in Windows registry boost your browsing speed?

    HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\RemoteComputer\NameSpace

    {2227A280-3AEA-1069-A2DE-08002B30309D} Value data - Printers
    {D6277990-4C6A-11CF-8D87-00AA0060F5BF} Value data - Scheduled Tasks

    No it will not.

    Edit: in the spirit of being helpful, there are a few ways of possibly boosting browsing speed. None of them are necessarily reliable, or apply universally.

    In approximate order of usefulness and likelihood of working...

    1. Use in-browser content blocking of some sort. Sluggish Javascript is common on a lot of websites. Blocking it on a whitelist basis will usually speed things up, and has security and privacy advantages.

    2. Use a better browser. Internet Explorer is much better than it used to be, but still slow in my experience.

    3. If your ISP's DNS is slow, you could try an alternative DNS service like OpenDNS.

    4. If you have a home network, and connection bandwidth is limited, you *might* benefit from setting up a local caching proxy. You could also throw in web filtering, which could further reduce the bandwidth used (and improve security/privacy). OTOH this might introduce latency, cause page loading issues depending on what pages and how it's set up, and in general be a bit involved... And obviously how much it helps depends on the network and the browsing habits.

    5. You could try a compressing proxy like Opera's. I have serious doubts that this would be helpful.

    Thanks Gullible Jones:

    I was more interested in what these registry settings actually do and if there needed.
    {2227A280-3AEA-1069-A2DE-08002B30309D} Tells Explorer to show printers shared on remote
    machine

    {D6277990-4C6A-11CF-8D87-00AA0060F5BF} Tells Explorer to show remote scheduled tasks.

    Don't know if this info is accurate and how this can boost browser speed according to
    another post I read. Can't believe everything you read.
