If you’ve had your computer for more than a year or so, then perhaps it’s been getting slower and slower. Maybe web pages take longer to load, or you have trouble watching videos on YouTube. The truth is, there are some simple things that you can do that will quickly speed up your computer. Some of these are free, and some of them cost money, but they all work like a charm.
If you’re computer is slower than normal, then you’ve likely got adware and spyware installed. These programs come in undetected, and they try and sell you things by spying on your web browsing habits. If you let them run around too long, your computer can quickly slow down to a halt.
There are plenty of programs that can get rid of these uninvited guests. Some are free, but most are for a fee. You can do a pretty good job with the free programs, but with the paid ones, you can set them up to consistently scan your system, and get rid of anything that doesn’t belong. Once you’ve got all these bugs out of the way, your computer will be much faster.
Your computer registry is also very important, and if it gets broken or damaged, it can easily slow down your machine. Every time you add a new program to the registry it increases in size. When you remove programs without properly uninstalling them, it can damage the registry, and this can slow down your computer.
In order to clean it up, you’ve got to get a registry cleaning program. Many times these come along with anti virus programs, so you can get a pretty good deal if you buy them both at the same time. That way you’ll be able to kill two birds with on stone.
One way to speed up your system is to configure your start up menu. This is all the programs that launch when you start your computer. Only select the ones that you use regularly. The others will still be there, but they won’t fire up unless you click on them.
These simple tips will dramatically speed up your computer. And once that happens, you can back to enjoying things the way they were meant to be.
