*'''Close Unnecessary Windows:''' Things like the Security Panel can take up lots of resources if you have it open, especially if you have a lot of content in it. Just close it after you're done using it. Same goes for search windows, transfer windows, host cache, etc. Some code will be added in the future to optimize the viewing of windows, however.

*'''Restrain Your Search:''' Shareaza doesn't include a limit on how many search results you can get, so you may get so many that it will seriously affect preformance on some computers. The best things to do are either search for specific terms (therefore reducing the results) or clicking 'Stop' when you have gotten the amount of content you want.  If you're done with searching, then close the search window.

*'''Minimize Shareaza:''' If you are waiting for a download to complete, or just sharing files with the Shareaza community, it is not necessary to keep Shareaza maximized all the time. Try closing all open windows you don't need (searches, transfers, host cache) and send Shareaza to the tray. If you don't have Shareaza set up that way, go to the [[Options.General|General Options]] [[(Options.General|Shareaza Settings > General > General]]) and configure the 'Tray' options to what you want.

*'''Do not run as a hub:''' As a hub, Shareaza will use most of its resources to maintain network traffic and hence uses a lot of bandwidth, CPU and RAM. To prevent this, force Shareaza to run as a leaf node, by disabling ''"Allow this node to become a hub."'' in the settings.  [[Options.Gnutella|Read more about becoming a leaf]]

*'''Too many security rules:''' If you have a huge number (>1000) of security rules in the security window (press F7 to open it), then Shareaza may use a lot of CPU time for matching every incoming and outgoing connection against those rules.  Unfortunately, this code is not optimized for a huge numer of rules, yet.  Using the Shareaza Security Update is no problem, you can find it on the forum.
