Tired of slow Productivity Software?

So, like me, I’m sure you view MANY PDFs as well as Word, Excel, and Access files. Maybe you’ve also noticed that those applications (especially Acrobat) seem to load S-L-O-W-L-Y. Well, the culprit way be a little application called wisptis.exe. What is it? In a nutshell, it’s Windows’ way of helping you be “productive” by readying itself for use with a pen or tablet PC. How convenient? The problem is it CAN be quite a resource hog, and on a laptop (or machine with a slow hard disk), you’re still loading another app.

You may be thinking, “I want it gone! I don’t use a pen/tablet and don’t plan to, so I’m going to erase it”. I know that’s how I felt, so I’m including the instructions below on how to do that. They’re pretty simple . . . and by simple I mean overly-difficult-because-microsoft-forgot-that-we-like-FAST-computers-without-bloatware.

Download this zip file, unzip the byebyewisptis.reg file, run it, and then continue to the following step. Feel free to look at that file. It does a bunch of registry deletes.

Now delete wisptis.exe from your WindowsSystem32 directory. If you can’t, it may already be running. If so, open Task Manager and kill it.

Tada! A faster computer!
