In my opinion, no one wants to pay too much to make computer run faster such as buying a new RAM if it is really not needed. If this happens the same to you, you are in the right place here for useful tips to regain faster computer speed again.
Simplify Your Startup Selections.
There are certain programs which start every time when you boot up your system. During the startup phase, they will take up some of your system resource and CPU uasge. That is to say, additional or unwanted startup items will definitely extend your startup time, sometimes by several minutes. So to get faster computer speed, please feel free to get rid of them! To manage startup list, click on Start / Run, then type “msconfig” and press “Enter”, then select the Startup tab.Here, you can check the startup list and then UNcheck the box(es) next to programs that you do not need to load with Windows and press Apply. But please not that do not disable your anti-virus program, anyway. It helps you to real-time well protect your computer from viruses, spyware.
Remove the unwanted programs.
With use, you must have a bunch of software packages on your hard drive that are no longer needed, or they were automatically installed when you downloaded some other programs, for example, Toolbars, file-sharing programs, free email enhancers, download managers. These uninvited “guests” are the main obstacle to get faster computer speed, or make computer faster. Or sometimes, the will cause web pages to load slowly. To do easily get get faster PC, please go to Start, Control Panel, then Add/Remove Programs to see what are installed on your computer and then remove the ones that you do not need any more. You can also search the websites to learn about the ones you’re not sure about.
Well protect the hard disk.
We know that with the hard disk, we can successfully store stuffs on the computer. But both Windows and applications will temporary files on the hard drive, taking up valuable space needlessly. But most of the time, files are not put as a complete unit on the hard disk, but being cut and placed in different corners of the hard disk instead. A hard disk, which is nearly full or chaotic will slow down disk access speed and then affect entire computer speed. Besides, when surfing the Internet, the TEMP Internet file folder will become larger and larger, causing Internet Explorer to slow down or malfunction. So to make computer run faster, please remember to regularly take out the below actions:
1) go to Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> Disk Cleanup. And then run it to clean up the useless system junk files from your selected drive.
2) go to Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> Disk Defragmenter. Disk Defragmenter is an utility which helps to rearrange the files on the hard disk, making them stay in order and much easier to be accessed to.
Hence, the computer or the applications will run much faster than before.
Clean your registry on regular basic.
As days by, your Windows registry will pile up junk and is full of invalid and obsolete keys or remnants of programs left after uninstalling programs from your computer. All of theses can result in slow startups and could be the major cause for your poor computer performance. So to always enjoy faster computer speed, you sould have a good registry cleaner in hand. It will repair your Windows registry by removing these invalid keys that are left behind or added from spywares/ viruses.
