Getting a slow Internet connection on Windows 7 is extremely annoying and frustrating. If your Internet is running slow on this system, then the good news is that you can speed it up pretty easily by fixing some very simple and common problems that often make it slow. Here’s what you need to do…
The first thing you need to do is to Close Any Programs Other Than Your Web Browser – Many people tend to “multi task” on Windows, opening many different programs at once. Although this is great for productivity, it actually slows down your Internet connection by effectively “splitting” it between your programs. This means that if your Internet was a pie, your browser would only be getting a small part of it – making it seem really slow. In order to speed it up, you need to make sure your browser gets the whole share of your connection, which is done by closing any of the other programs that you might have open in Windows; especially all the Internet messengers and email programs.
After you’ve done that, you can then use a little trick that will boost your connection speed dramatically. The “trick” to making Windows 7 Internet speed a lot faster is to clean out all damaged settings that Windows 7 uses to run your Internet. The problem with many Windows 7 computers is that they have so many settings that your system gets confused about which ones it has open and saves many of them in the wrong way, causing your entire PC (and Internet) to run slower.
The problem that many Windows 7 computers have is actually down to the registry database, which stores all the settings for your PC. Every time you want to browse the Internet, 100’s of settings from the registry are called to help Windows 7 process all the web pages and content extremely quickly. However, because there are so many Internet settings open at once, Windows often gets confused and saves a lot of them in the wrong way, causing your computer to struggle to read them, slowing it down.
You can Clean Out The Registry Database to make your Windows 7 Internet speed really fast. To do this, you should use a “registry cleaner”, which is a software program that will scan through your PC and fix any damaged registry files inside it. There are a lot of registry cleaners on the Internet, and if you can get one which is able to clean out the most damaged / corrupted files on Windows 7, you’ll be able to make your computer and Internet run a lot faster and smoother again.
