Question on WinXP Command Line Rundll32.exe advapi32.dl

Recommended Posts

I saw in on the TweakXP forum a reference to a "run command" that supposedly "unloads idle processes" to free resources. The command line is Rundll32.exe advapi32.dll,ProcessIdleTasksDoes anyone know what exactly this command does? I created a restore point and a HD back-up then ran this command, lots of HD activity but no noticeable change in performance.Thanks,Bruce.

Copied from something I turned up using google:"Windows tends to run some tasks -- particularly the system defragmenter -- as background tasks that run under system idle time. Imagine the impact this might have on benchmarks that use the hard drive. This command forces those idle tasks to complete, then shut down."-Basil
