So you have windows xp on your Netbook, And you want it to run faster?
Or do you just want it to run fast when your running certain programs or games?

I don't know any other programs like end it all but you can setup your Netbook manually for best performance by stopping certain windows services, disabling windows themes, and effects and a few other tweaks if thats what your after?
