Intel Application Accelerator

Well perhaps you can, Intel has made their Application Accelerator (IAA) available since last September. It reduces storage sub-system bottlenecks apparently. If you have a compatible Intel chipset (810 to 860) and a Pentium Celeron, III , 4 or Xeon chip then get on down to :

Read through everything before you start downloading and installing. You may need to pre-install the Intel Chipset Software Installation Utility if you have XP running on a 830 or 845 chipset. Intel also provide a chipset identification utility if your unsure of what you have - it's linked from the same page.

Intel claim very significant increases in boot times and application speed. On a personal note, on my P4 2GHz, applications do start a lot faster. I suggest you do some benchmarking first (a stopwatch is an easy way to measure boot time). I would be interested in results people have had. This also works for 98SE,ME,NT4 and 2000.

NOTE: IAA works well for most, but not all. Judge for youself. It's easy enough to uninstall if you don't like it.

    This may or may not help Your system. Evaluate the performance of Your system using SiSoft Sandra before and after using IAA. If there's no noticeable change, You'll be better off with one less application running.

    Because you say that uninstalling is easy, while in fact it's not possible atall to delete the driver after install.

    The IAA can indeed improve performance. It can also cause some difficult to find problems. On one system I tried it on it seemed to work well, but the Event Viewer revealed some intermittent disk errors. Uninstalling the IAA resolved the problem. So be careful.
