Some of those "tweaks" will end up doing more harm that good and some could just plain screw up your computer.

Enabling PAE is a bad idea. People were enabling PAE and then finding out that it created all sorts of compatibility and performance issues so starting with Windows XP SP2, Microsoft capped physical address space to 32-bits regardless of if the PAE flag is set or not. Microsoft disabled PAE's extended address functionality for a very good reason and it's not a good idea to enable it.

For that matter, people shouldn't be using 32-bit versions of Vista anyways.

Second, enabling advanced performance is not likely to provide much benefit (other than placebo) on a typical consumer-level setup. It basically enables very aggressive write caching which might benefit a server but it's going to do nothing for things like games or multimedia that are dependent on read speeds. In addition, without a backup power supply, enabling this option is downright foolish unless you have a penchant for data loss.

There is some very good information in that guide.

Unfortunately, there are also alot of [incorrect] opinions in that article, where they claim that this or that isn't necessary, with nothing to back up what they're saying.

Just like with XP, where people often swore by disabling this & that, this is another guide for those who like tweaking things they don't need to.

I suppose that if one feels they're going to see a massive different from disabling a few things, saving them a couple MB of RAM usage, all power to them
