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.
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.
