Windows In previous OS News articles, I described how mature computers up to ten years oldĀ can be refurbished and made useful. One article identified and evaluated different approaches to refurbishing. This article tells how to performance tune a mature Windows computer to make it serviceable again. I hope it will interest anyone who wants to tune Windows.

It's not a good idea to install an old Acrobat reader because of the security risks, it's one of the most used vector of attack on Windows. While Foxit Reader is nice, you should mention lightweight open-source alternatives like sumatra pdf which loads faster than Acrobat and Foxit.
