Sometimes your computer's system may be slow and the performance of the computer may not be as you want, but there is feature in windows 7 calld "ReadyBoost", you can use this feature to speed up your system when you have USB flash drive.

how does a USB Flash Drive Speed Up Your System?

1. Put your USB Flash Drive in USB slot on your computer and you will see an autoplay popup as picture below. Choose to “Speed up my system using Windows Readyboost”.

2. If you don't see autoplay popup, go to "My Computer," you will see Removable Disk "USB Flash Drive," right click on your USB and select "Properties." 

3. In the Properties window, go to ReadyBoost Tab.

4. Select the option to “Use this device,” and set the amount of space you want to be used in increasing your system’s speed and then click to “Apply,” you can select "Dedicate this device to ReadyBoost."

Windows will then create what is called a paging file on the disk which allows faster access. Note, this only works with SD cards and USB 2.0 devices. Now your system can work faster.
