Windows Align

When Windows 98 and Me are initially installed, they run a DLL called WinAlign.

This utility will place your applications in a specific location within memory so that they will load faster when executed.

You also should have this utility within your task scheduler.

If you do not normally leave your computer on to run tasks, it is still a good idea to occasionally run this utility from the task scheduler.

To see which programs WinAlign has set to align, you can look at Winali.ini.
