Speed up your Drives.
There are a couple of settings to change that will allow windows to read ahead on your drives, thus improving performance.
Double-click the System icon in Control Panel. Click on the Performance tab and then on the File System button. On the Hard Disk tab, make sure the read-ahead is set to full. On the typical role of this machine, change the default which is Desktop Computer to Network Server. This allows Windows to set a bigger read-ahead buffer.
On the CD-ROM tab. Make sure all the read-ahead is set to the fullest. Even if you have a CD-ROM lower than 4x speed, change the optimize access pattern for quad-speed or higher. That will also cache older CD-ROMs better.
To delete an item immediately without sending it to the Recycle Bin. (Windows 98)
