Load Kernel Into RAM

Programs in Windows 98 could be loaded and Kept in RAM as long as user want. Even the user could load a video clip into RAM and play it directly from there; Windows XP is much  more restrictive due to security reasons. But Windows XP provides functionality to force kernel to run into RAM. By Default, only required components of XP kernel are loaded in RAM at boot time. Here, in this Tweak I will explain how to force Windows XP kernel run from RAM.

Navigate to:
HLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session_Manager\Memory Management

Set the Value of the "DisablePagingExecutive" to 1 which will make the entire kernel be loaded in Memory (Reboot is required.)

Note: Use this hack only if you have sufficient memory (Recommended 512MB or more). Also this hack may affect some programs that use the Windows swap file directly, like Photoshop.


About This Blog

The Windows Registry is a database which stores settings and options for Microsoft Windows operating systems. It contains normally information and settings for hardware, operating system software, most non-operating system software, and per-user settings. Registry is used to optimize the security, enhance the functionality, modify the functioning of any software OR settings and many more.

In this blog I have tried to collect all the tweaks and hacks available on various website. I have tested many of these hacks before posting but still I would suggest you to take backup of your registry before trying any of these tweaks and if anything goes wrong while trying these hacks I or this blog will not be held responsible.
