Introduction I'm using a 2.2 GHz processor and it's taking me up to 10 seconds to open a 20 kB word document. Most of the time is the time it takes to open the software itself. It takes up to 3 seconds to open the file when the software is already running. Problem I need this process to take a fraction of a second. Is there anything else I can do but to increase the computer's CPU? I also want internet explorers to open up in less than 0.1 seconds. Is there anything I could do to the regedit with respect to increasing the time it takes to open an internet explorer? I also want my computer to change its priorities. As it takes up to 1 second to open up an internet explorer, within that time I've already managed to copy files, move files and open folders etc. So while I've got my folder open, I don't want to be interrupted by the process/software (internet explorer) which is being opened. I don't want it to maximize. Is there anything I can do to prevent my computer from interrupting my work? I also want my computer to start certain processes sooner than others. Is there anything I can do to force my computer to prioritize this? For example, my computer might open 30 .exe files which is related to the sound card, graphic card, software supports, virus softwares etc, while trying to connect to the internet might be the 50th thing it might do. But maybe I'd like my computer to go ahead and connect to the internet asap, or maybe run some other service or .exe file first. Is this possible? If so, how? I also want to know if it's possible to add multiple CPU units together, and achieve far beyond 4 GHz processing speed.
