@="{C2FBB630-2971-11D1-A18C-00C04FD75D13}"
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AllFilesystemObjects\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\Move To]
@="{C2FBB631-2971-11D1-A18C-00C04FD75D13}"
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop]
"AutoEndTasks"="1"
"HungAppTimeout"="1000"
"MenuShowDelay"="8"
"WaitToKillAppTimeout"="2000"

"NoLowDiskSpaceChecks"=-
"LinkResolveIgnoreLinkInfo"=-
"NoResolveSearch"=-
"NoResolveTrack"=-
"NoInternetOpenWith"=-
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control]
"WaitToKillServiceTimeout"="5000"


STEP 2: Apply Visual Performance Tweak :

2. Now go to "Advanced" tab and click on Performance >> "Settings" button

1. To customize Windows 8 services configuration and to change services startup type, you'll need to open Services Manager. You can open it by using any of following ways:

a. Move your mouse cursor to bottom-left corner of screen and right-click on the corner, you'll see a menu containing various system shortcuts. Its called "Win+X Menu" because you can also access it by pressing WIN+X keys together. Now click on "Computer Management" option and it'll open a new window.
OR 
b. Open My Computer and you can click on "Manage" button present in the ribbon.
OR 
c. If you have enabled My Computer icon on Desktop using Desktop Personalization window, you can right-click on the icon and select "Manage" option. 
Once Computer Management window is opened, click on "Services and Applications -> Services" in left-side pane. It'll show the services configuration screen.

2. Alternatively, you can directly open the same screen using services.msc command in RUN dialog box.

3. Once you access services manager, you are ready to configure Windows 8 services startup type. You can sort the services by their startup type by clicking on "Startup Type" column. It'll help you in find all running services easily and quickly.

4. Now you can double-click on a service and read its description to know whether its an important service or not. If you think the service is not important, you can set its startup type to MANUAL.

If you are unsure which services should be set to manual, following is a small list of services which can be safely set to manual/disabled without causing any problem to your Windows:

Computer Browser (If your computer is not connected to any network)
Diagnostic Policy Service
Distributed Link Tracking Client (If your computer is not connected to any network)
IP Helper (If you don't use IPv6 connection)
Offline Files
Program Compatibility Assistant Service
Portable Device Enumerator Service
Print Spooler (If you don't have a printer)
Remote Registry (You can set it to DISABLED for Security purposes)
Secondary Logon
Security Center
Server (If your computer is not connected to any network)
TCP/IP NetBIOS Helper (If you are not in a workgroup network)
Windows Error Reporting Service
Windows Image Acquisition (WIA) (If you don't have a scanner)
Windows Search (If you don't use Windows built-in Search feature frequently) (Check this)
5. Once you change services startup type, close services manager and restart your system to take effect.

Now you should notice a little bit improvement in your system performance. If you face any problem, you can restore the services startup type to automatic using services manager again.
