Having a slow computer isn’t fun at all. It is frustrating and stressful. I have compiled a short list of things you should do to speed it up.
Do you have a million things starting up when you start your computer? These programs are slowing your computer down. You should limit the things starting at start up. You can go into each programs options and uncheck the start program at start up option. You need to just run them when you need them. Having lots of programs running at once will take a toll on your systems resources causing it to run slow. You can also go to run and type in msconfig. Msconfig will show you a list of all your start up programs. Be careful what you uncheck here.
Clean your desktop of all the icons on it. You only need a few icons on it. I have seen some people with the whole screen covered in icons. Having all those icons on there slows down your computer. When you delete some of them off your desktop, you will notice a difference.
Run a good registry cleaner. A good registry cleaner will clean a lot of stuff for you then just the windows registry. It will clean up all the temp files for you to get your computer moving faster. This is one of the best things that you can do to speed up your computer. A good program will make it easy for you to use it. Some programs are as little as one click.
There you have it, the list of speeding up your computer.
