    Best methods to improve Windows Server Performance

    1. Use a dedicated drive for the pagefile

    By default, Windows creates a pagefile that it treats as virtual memory. Because Windows uses this file frequently, it's best to place it on a dedicated drive (not a dedicated volume). Doing so ensures that Windows will not have to wait on another application to finish using the hard disk before it can read data from the pagefile.

    2. Keep your hard disks defragmented

    Schedule set dates for the drive to be automatically defragmented

    3. Use the NTFS file system

    Although NTFS is the default file system for Windows servers, Windows does support the use of FAT and FAT-32 file systems.

    4. Remove seldom-used utilities

    Running an application you're not actually using is a waste of server resources.

    5. Disable unused services

    By disabling unnecessary services, you are shrinking the size of the executing code base, thereby reducing the chances of the server containing an exploitable security hole.

    6. Log off

    This is another example of a situation in which you can increase security and performance at the same time. You should always log off of a server when you're not actively using the console.

    7. Adjust the server response

    A server is different from a desktop computer in that applications are not usually run from the server's console. That being the case, it's best to optimize the server so that applications running in the background take priority.

    You can do this by opening the Server's Control Panel and double-clicking the System icon. When Windows opens the System Properties sheet, go to the Advanced tab and click the Settings button found in the Performance section. Windows will now open the Performance Options properties sheet. Go to the properties sheet's Advanced tab and make sure that Windows is set to provide the best performance to background services.
