How to Speed Up One's Computer

April 16, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 216

Is your computer running slow? Are you tired of waiting for that internet web page to load? There are several little tips and tricks available to speed up your computer and get it working to its optimum performance level. It may be time to do a spot of maintenance on it to speed things up a little.

The obvious answer is of course to buy a new computer but we are not going to look at that option as you almost certainly have spent a great deal of money on the one you already have and that is what we shall address. If you carry out these few simple maintenance tricks, hopefully you will never have to say, "My computer is slow" again.

Firstly you need to get rid of any spyware that exists on your computer. Spyware gathers personal information, such as browsing habits and worse still, usernames and passwords. Spyware removal can prevent your computer from running slow. There are plenty of free spyware scanning software tools online that you can download and once you perform a short scan it will pick up any spyware files that exist on your computer. They do need regular updating as new spyware tends to pop up on the World Wide Web with alarming regularity.

A free tool like Microsoft Security Essentials is handy to have as it runs quietly and efficiently in the background so you don't have to worry about stopping the work you are doing or making updates.

How to speed up your computer by using Disk Cleanup

First you need to remove temporary internet files. Every time you open a web page your computer will leave a small file on your PC. They are left there even after you have long since browsed away from that internet site. Your computer needs to know that next time you access that page it can do so a little faster by accessing the temporary internet file. However, these files build up to such an extent that they clog up the access to your data so in the end it's better to get rid of them every once a week or so.

If your computer is running slow it may also be a good idea to empty the recycle bin too. Disk Cleanup actually takes care of the recycle bin and the temporary internet files in one sure-fire hit. Finally try running a disk defragmenter. Disk defragmenting will tidy all your files into blocks so that your computer will access them faster.
