If you are using an NT based OS (NT3,4, 2000, XP, Server 2003 (Why on a laptop?)) and were only interested in using it for RISC OS, try stopping all of the un-necessary Services from running?

MDM (Machine Debug Manager) is the one I hate! - no point, jsut crashes IE and does nothing else that I can see.

This significantly speeds up the startup, and frees memory up . (More for RISC OS :D)

You also might want to try a program called RegCleaner (Part of a bigger program now, but I still have the Free version if anyone wants it).

I have found that this gets my 192MB 30Gb K62 (400MHz) running very well! :)
