During the normal operation of a Windows system, registry data is constantly being written to and removed from the registry. Over time this data becomes scattered within the registry file and when information is deleted from the registry holes are left which fragment the data within the registry.

The Vista/XP Virtual Desktop Manager is a PowerToy designed to compensate for the limitations associated with the boundaries of a single desktop. The tool is designed to support Windows Vista RTM and Windows XP SP2, but it also integrates seamlessly with Vista Service Pack 1 and on the same line with the third and final service pack for XP, which does not bring such a consistent evolution to the table in comparison with SP2. But either on Vista or on XP, the tool enables users to run virtually an infinite number of desktops, with the only limits imposed by the amount of RAM.
The PC Decrapifier is designed to remove a specific list unwanted software in an unattended fashion. The PC Decrapifier will run on any Windows XP or Vista variant. The PC does not need to be new, however, the older the PC is, the less likely it will have any of the software that it can detect.

Learn how to do this with your copy of XP.
