Game XP

ABOUT:
     Game XP is a new generation and unique *FREE* tool to optimize the performance of your computer, corrects problems and helps you to set up your system to match your gaming needs.

     Game XP Game XP extends your operating system's capabilities and makes Windows faster and comfortable for maximum gaming experience.

It tweaks and modifies various XP settings (cache settings, CPU priority etc.) and optionally disables or stops several Windows services that are usually not needed. A full list of actions is included in the readme.txt and is shown below. The program does not require any installation, and does not need to be running at all times. The program makes quite a few changes, and is mostly suited for strict gaming machines, or as a temporary optimization.

INSTALL:
Copy GameXP.exe (and GameXp.htm as a Help File optionally) to the folder that you want.
If system analysis of Game XP match your computer then simply press the Go to Warp Speed button.
After re-booting your computer, you will notice your computer working faster and overall performance greatly increased for maximum gaming experience.

HOW IT WORKS:
When GameXP runs, you can
Save the current state of Windows or restore the state to its previous saved state.
Disable all tweaks and return to default Windows settings.
Or press the Go to Warp speed and make games to run faster and boost overall performance of your computer.
