    Question Any tips to reduce the memory footprint of MS-Vista and XP?

    Hi All,
    I have MS windows Vista one a HP laptop(Intel Core 2 duo 1.83 ghz and 2 gb ram) & xp on acer laptop(AMD dual core 2.2 Ghz & 1gb ram). I recently downloaded windows xp black edition from a torrent and installed it in VM and noticed that it takes a mere 95 MB after bootup!!! I would like to have similar small memory footprints for my vista machine (currently taking up 1.12 gb after bootup) & xp (currently taking up 450 MB after bootup).
    Any tips to get similar results??

    But the version of Vista and Xp on the laptops is 100% legal.
    Does that soothe your nerves?

    It's already a whole 2 gb for the 1gb xp laptop and 4gb for the 2gb vista laptop.

    If you have Aero effects turned on in Vista, it takes a lot of memory. Turn down the lights and see what happens.

    Just to mention, if it does not make you crazy.(Caution:mentioning pirated software ahead.)
    The XP black edition had a memory footprint of 95MB against that of 435 MB of the legal XP install on my laptop.
    I have turned off all the fancy stuff and tweaked most of the settings, but unable to understand as to how can we really get such a small footprint!!!

    Download this software 'minimem'.. You can use it to reduce it to reduce the memory footprint of individual softwares. As for your os a fresh installation will always have a smaller footprint than an older installation. Try defraging your comp or better defrag your pagefile using 'pagedefrag'... Also download 'autoruns' for a comprehensive look at all you startup programs... Me using legal WinXP (dunno if same applies for Vista) and after all dis got a memory footprint of 134MB..
