5 Easy And Smartest Ways to Speed up your PC

Tech & Gadget Blog Awards 2017

PC’s can get annoyingly slow at times. It’s an inconsequential part of owning a computer, especially if you’re one to install programs with disregard. The good news is you can give your computer a new lease of life. There are things you can do to improve its performance. In most cases though, a slow PC is not the consequence of incapable hardware. So even if your PC has aged, it can still serve you, if you treat it well enough. And if you’re not sure on how to do that exactly, here are a few ideas to get you started.

Get a capable antivirus program

The importance of antivirus software cannot be overemphasized. It keeps malicious spyware, malware and adware from infiltrating your system, and keeps you protected from other likely threats. With a good antivirus program, you can periodically scan the system to remove any harmful programs that directly impeded on the performance of your PC.

Declutter your PC

Just because your PC can handle everything you throw at it, doesn’t mean you should. If there are any files and programs that are no longer of service to you, get rid of them.  The idea is to free up your computer’s resources, so it can handle basic tasks better. If the resources are limited to begin with, consider making a switch to lighter programs that don’t require much computing power. Clean your desktop, and empty the recycle bin on a regular. The idea is to free up as much space as possible.

Improve startup time

There are programs that are designed to start every time the computer boots. While they give you the convenience of access immediately after start-up, they are intensive, and only work to slow down your computer. In most cases, they don’t need to run every time the computer runs, so consider disabling them.

Conduct regular disk cleanups

Disk cleanups are natively supported by Windows, so you don’t need to install any new programs for that. Disk cleanups remove temporary and old files, freeing up more hard disk space. You can define the frequency of the cleanups, depending on your computing habits. Heavy users should consider weekly cleanups.

Consider inexpensive upgrades

PC’s are built to support upgrades. As you evolve as a PC user, your needs evolve with you. The computer that served you well last year might be a little underpowered for you today. Consider getting inexpensive upgrades, such as RAM, graphics cards to improve on some processing qualities of your PC.

Finally if all else fails, consider doing a clean install. This is only a plausible option if there is no risk of losing your files (such as when you have a partitioned disk drive). Freshly installed Windows runs flawlessly, and this option is popular with some users. It undoes any changes made to the Windows registry as well as program fragments that refused to quit, making your PC run faster than it ever has before.

These few tips should help you inject some new life into your PC.

    Thanks for sharing, Ige.

    In answer to your question, I do actually know a great way to streamline and speed up a PC. Here are the results of my latest research effort with the Boost Software highly acclaimed registry cleaners:

    PC SpeedBoost is in many ways a cosmetically altered version of
    PC HealthBoost, but with 3 new features.

    * The ability to enable/disable CPU Processes Manager which
    can help optimize the processor’s workload.

    * The ability to enable/disable Software Launch Boost, which
    can speed up the loading time of your programs.

    * Can optimize speed in the system by disabling purely
    cosmetic features that can impede system performance.
    Includes a backup separate from the registry backup. This
    way you can restore previous system optimization settings
    after a cleaning without restoring the registry settings.
    This is in case you don’t like the new visual appearance of
    your desktop.

    If you haven’t tried the registry cleaners that are reliable, there are some wonderful tools for improving the PC speed and economize processing resources.
