Unnecessary Windows Effects (Aero Glass) I know it looks great but it just consumes too much of your resources

Check out Black Viper for disabling services, he has been giving fantastic advice for years on streamlining PC performance,
I do not like registry cleaners, having had some bad experiences in the past, so I do it by hand. (Not for those unlearned, you can smash your system fast) but the main idea is
1 BACK UP YOUR REGISTRY
2 run down programs disinstalled by name and editor name using search tools

What about one for advanced system care as well? I use that to clean out junk files from programs and things like that.. also i use the smart defrag 2 for the full feature which takes a while but it really helps.

use "end it all 2 " before firing your cad application,it shutsdown other nuisance creating processes .it's quite powerful so use it carefully
you can get it from here http://www.docsdownloads.com/enditall-1.htm

it won't speed the whole system.but momentarily you can run your application with slight more juice from system

always check task manager for process that can be ended and not needed

A better task manager is supplied free on Microsoft : Process Explorer from Sysinternals, it replaces transparently the W$ tool, and stays nice in the taskbar. They have a suite of nifty tools for admin purposes, file and network

in windows 7, you can go to the tab Compatibility and check ''Disable Visual themes'' that way, the theme will be more light when you run your cad software
