Is your computer slower than usual and you have no idea why? Don’t rush to get it to your IT guy just yet. A sluggish PC can have several causes and, in this article, we are going to tackle the ones that you can do something about.
Our PCs are constantly abused and cluttered by us, because we keep on downloading content, installing and uninstalling programs, rearranging files and folders, moving them around, copying them, deleting them and so on. All these actions affect the performance of your computer, especially given the fact that we don’t always know how to properly install or uninstall a program. The Windows registry is oftentimes full of broken entries, corrupt or missing entries, leftover files and so on. All these cause your PC to become slower, because it takes more time to open programs and its overall performance will decrease.
Here are some quick tips on how to speed up your PC:
- Don’t clutter your drive with all sorts of programs and data you don’t need anymore; delete duplicate, temporary files, unnecessary files and other forms of junk data and uninstall the apps you are no longer using
- Try not to run too many programs at once
- Limit the number of programs that are allowed to start with Windows, because they will only slow down the Startup process
- Don’t let your PC turned on for days in a row, use that restart button on a constant basis
- Try to upgrade the RAM by adding more
- Try to replace your traditional hard-drive with an SSD (solid-state drive)
- Install an antivirus and run a full scan to find out whether your PC is infected with any kind of malware or not; malware can also affect the performance of your system
