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.

Agreed. The amount of time spent is non trivial, and as you said the risk is that you will leave some malware around. I still do it every now and then for people who have lost their install cds for their os and apps. Its not for the faint of heart or those that charge by the hour. There are no guarantees that it will work, which is okay if you are charging them in non monetary amounts.
