Tweak Name: Disable system paging of windows kernel
File Type: Registry File
This is something for vista users who want to speed up their computers. The system kernel is the heart of windows and controls alot of low level functions. It’s a system component that you want working at it’s best.
Unfortunately if you run out of RAM the kernel’s processes can be shunted off onto the page file on the hard drive. This could cause a dramatic decrease of kernel performance. However this tweak forces windows to keep the kernel in the faster RAM memory, thus speeding it up.
A note of caution. If you keep the kernel in memory this could cause a shortage of RAM for other applications and could actually slow down your computer. This is why I (and others) recommend that you only use this tweaks on computers with 1.5 GB of RAM or more.
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management]
Change the value of the “DisablePagingExecutive” key to “1”.
Hope that helps.
