    Ran across a mod for Reseident Evil 4 PC that requires a memory tweak to function properly. The user says this also supposedly optimizes memory in Xp which by default is not. Thoughts from anyone with expertise in this area?

    No expert here but the tweaker says to set the page file at certain sizes but would the reg setting "DisablePagingExecutive"=dword:00000001 turn off all paging or only certain system paging o_O

    BOOT no tweaks:26.22 tweaks:24.39 (lower is better)
    Logon + Services no tweaks:38.60 tweaks:33.96 (lower..and you know the end)

    PCMark05 higher is better
    no tweaks 4343
    tweaks 4499 (without Win32PrioritySeparation tweak, it gains stability)

    Now I'll go ninja:ninja:
    Most of those tweaks are false myths. If you want all performance out of you system use this reg and disable unnecessary services. Over down there is visual section if you do not want to change visual look for performance delete it.
