First, i wish you a happy new year .
So we have 1000 Xp SP3 Client and we woud like to set the option "Adjust for best performance" on System Properties on all clients.
Is anyone have an idea if is it possible to do that with GPO or is it necessary to modify registry ?
We have Windows 2003 R2 server Domain Controller.
Thanks a lot,
as far as I know, no GPO exists for this.
But the setting is stored in registry:
0 = Let Windows choose what's best for my computer.
1 = Adjust for best appearance.
2 = Adjust for best performance
You coudl create a custom .reg file with this setting and deploy it to the clients in your preferred way (also possible with GPO!)
That reg setting is only for the GUI radial marker. It doesn't actually apply any changes :-(
I found more settings, which I've listed here: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-us/itproxpsp/thread/1092434a-c80e-47c5-9c88-478385f30591
But it still doesn't apply the changes :'(
Have just spent most of my morning trying to crack this.
Download this - http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?app=core&module=attach§ion=attach&attach_id=3726
It works flawlessly every time. Have tested on XP, Windows 7 & Windows 8 machines.
The original compiled code can be found here - http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/31999-adjust-for-best-performance-through-command-line/
I grabbed AutoIt, and pasted the code in, making sure to change the following below, to provide an additional, separate script for 'Adjust for best appearance'.
;click on "Adjust for best performance"
So glad I came across this, thought it might make a few more people happy.
