For the many out there that are running Windows Vista with 512MB RAM and are left helpless without video card driver support, optimizing your computer’s appearance can mean the difference between a slow and a fast computer. I have just recently switched to Windows Classic and it cut down loading certain windows from 3-8 seconds to 1-3 (Yes my PC is really slow.)
Windows Classic has always been a popular theme for gamers because it gives a great performance boost to your computer.

So in this guide, we’ll go through how to switch to Windows Classic AND how to optimize your computer so it can speed up while maintaining the whole Windows Aero feeling.
