If you want to gain some extra space and optimize the performance and customize your computer then follow the below tips and tricks......All TESTED only.....these are common and well-known tips and tricks so anyone could do it

1.Reclaim CD ROM Cache:

If you do not use the CD-ROM drive very often, you can reclaim some precious memory. This can be especially useful for low-end computers.(like mine)
1. Open Control Panel > System > Performance > File System.
2. From the CD-ROM tab, configure the amount of cache that is assigned to the drive.
3. Adjust the slider according to your needs. The minimum amount is 64 KB and the maximum is 1238 KB. Changing the Optimise access pattern for drop-down selection also affects the amount of memory used.

2.Dummy entries in Add/Remove Programs:

Is it bothering you whenever you open 'uninstall programs' and still find the entries of already uninstalled programs then do the following, because sometimes, even after programs are uninstalled, or due to the files being deleted instead of uninstalled, the entry in the Add/Remove Programs list do not get removed. To remove them from the list:
1. Start the Registry Editor and navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\
2. Locate the program entry here and delete it.

3.Bitmaps As Icons:

You can preview bitmaps (BMP files) as icons in Explorer instead of the default icon of the application it is associated with.
1. Click Start > Run, type regedit and press Enter to open the Registry Editor.
2. Navigate to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Paint.Picture\
3. Double-click the Default string and change it's value to "%1" (without double-quotes).
4. Close the Registry Editor and restart

4.Preview Media Files :

Internet Explorer 4 and higher allow previewing media files (wav, mid, avi, mov, mpg) in Windows Explorer.
1. Using Windows Explorer, navigate to the folder Windows\Web.
2. Open the file Folder.htt in Notepad.
3. Look for wantMedia = false and replace this with wantMedia = true.
You should now be able to preview media files in folders that are viewed as a web page.
