Ways To Speed Up My Computer

Mar 22, 2008
Whenever we purchase a new product, we expect it to last for a lifetime and that is no different especially when the product you are buying is a computer. However, that ideal situation seems to never come through as you would find out in months to come. As the days past, you will realize that your computer not only does not maintain its efficiency but will decline in performance as you use it more and more.

There are several factors leading to the decline in your computer's performance and also different methods to stop them or to slow down that process.

Clean out your Registry

The registry of the computer is often overlooked by users as they have no idea that its there! Being one of the most important parts of your window's system, it records and makes entries to every installation or every thing you do in your computer. The only problem is, it only knows how to add new entries and not delete the old. As such, when you delete certain programs or applications, the entries remain and are useless and clog up the system. This slows the computer down as it has to go past all these useless junk entries in order to process the right one. With time, the files in your registry can also become missing or corrupted. This will no doubt hinder the performance of your computer as well.

Check for Viruses and Spyware

Once of the most problematic things you can ever encounter while having a computer is with spywares and viruses. Viruses are made by people who have nothing better to do than to want to hurt your computer and sometimes they even delete and corrupt precious information or data in your computer that you have been working on for months! Spywares are not uncommon nowadays and they are almost impossible to be prevented. As we surf the web, it is almost certain that websites would plant little programs, spyware, into your system without even you knowing and its sole purpose is to spy on your surfing patterns and etc. With all these little programs working behind your back in the computer, it is no doubt that your computer would be processing so slowly. Thus, search the web for a good anti-virus program or spyware remover and get rid of all these pesky programs from your computer today!

To maintain your computer can be an easy task to do, but it takes discipline and patience. Do not be hasty in wanting to get a new computer when your old one seems to be working at an unsatisfactory rate. Sometimes, you just have to search for the root of the problem and you will realize that you can save so much money just by downloading free softwares from the net to solve the problems your computer is facing. That beats burning a hole in your pocket just to buy a new computer. So choose today, whether you want to regularly check up on your computer or you would rather fork out a larger sum of money to but a new computer when it is spoilt.
