I assume you've turned off all the unrequired services ? Check www.blackviper.com

there are also a few registry tweaks you can check out.. try using a prefetch value of 3 or 4, it will speed boottime.
if you want more speed, shift your swapfile to a fat32 partition on the first partition o a separate hard-disk, or better yet distribute two swap files over partitions.

If you still need more speed, you could consider junking explorer.exe for a lighter GUI replacement.. maybe something like LiteStep or similar

There's loads of good stuff on that BlackViper site. Reminds me of the last good site I came across, Firewall.cx or something..

If I remember correctly isn't FAT32 best for speed and NTFS for stability? If this is true, its kind of a toss up of what you really want.
