Optimizing Performance in Virtual Machines

I don't have a lot of information on the subject, but figured maybe collectively we can put together enough information to create a good resource.  I plan on doing some research in the next week or so and I will consolidate that with whatever folks post here into the lead post.
This coin declares Caesar is "Dictator for Life." He did serve as Dictator for the remainder of his life, but his life would end only a few weeks after this issue. For Caesar to put his image on coins and essentially declare himself king was too much for Brutus and his republican allies.

I once found this script somewhere and have been using it ever since. There are probably more services in Windows XP that could be shut off to increase performance.

That's a nice 'lil batch file, and don't forget that those and more, can be turned off in msconfig throught the 'run' command.
