    Good idea Saaya, i guess we will see if this acutally helps the problem.

    Edit - I think it would be a good idea to make this an Announcment so that people have a better chance of seeing it.

    I know this is 3 years old but, shouldn't it be updated? Im a newbie(for now) and I couldn't seem to find "Computer related open discussion" only to find that it is called "Tech Talk" now :\

    This needs an update.
    Windows 7 + SSD:
    Mode: AHCI, default Microsoft driver or latest Intel RST
    Defrag: Off
    Hibernation: Off (use Sleep mode, recommend a UPS)
    Indexing: On (it only indexes a few locations, not your whole system unless you tell it to)
    Page File: On (set to the minimum of 16MB if you have a large amount of RAM, disabling not recommended)
    Prefetch: On
    Superfetch: On (RAM is always faster than an SSD - use it)
    System Restore: Off (with regular backups)
    Browser Cache: RAM Only, Disk Cache Off (How to with Chrome)
    Documents, Music, Pictures, Videos, Downloads to HDD (Public Libraries too, see above link about junctions)
    UAC: On!
