    Security Center

    Superfetch

    Windows Search

    Make it easy on yourself and try Yamicosofts VISTA manager 1.23. It is by far the best tweaking application out there.

    Did you take a look here? I need to make some changes (which I keep promising to do but never have enough time) but generally speaking it could give you a hand. But TBH, there isn't much tweaking to be done in Vista because most of the older tweaks have been phased out by M$ and it's already pretty quick anyway most of the time (although people will argue otherwise :rolleyes:). If you're worried about how much memory Vista is using, it would be a good idea to remember that Vista is very good at freeing up RAM as soon as a memory intensive application is launched, so don't worry too much about that.
