Not so much a hint, but more Wishful thinking.

"Yeah, lets find some processes that seem to be related to screen refreshing or similar and kill them dead. Then ooh that was satisfying, I think it even sped things up a bit, yeah I'm sure of it, of course it would have, wouldn't it?"

That's the thought train here, without that last check.

Where is the science in this claim? No measurements before or after. No real indication of how much it was sped up, even as a real rough estimate.

I'll put this down to one of those 'hints' that just slipped through without much vetting. I mean, how useful is this really?

The most this could have sped your situation up by would not even get onto the left side of the decimal point in percentage terms.
Best to get more RAM and a speedy SSD RAID setup for any real tangible performance gains.
