Ways To Improve Computer Stability

Jun 23, 2008
Computer stability may be an issue for many users, and ways to improve the stability of your PC can be both fast and simple. You do not have to be a programmer to keep your PC stable and avoid annoying and risky computer crashes. Error messages for any program or process can be a sign of instability in your system, and these methods will prevent those pesky error messages from appearing as well. Keeping your computer stable is an important key to protecting your PC while also improving the speed and performance of your system.

Only open one window or run one application at a time. Many users try to multi task on their computer, with an e-mail window open as well as other programs running, and this can decrease the computer stability and lead to crashes. Only do one process or task at a time, and when you open a new window close out the other one. This will help your system run faster, perform better, and eliminate a lot of error messages.

Computer Stability And Quick Fixes

Go through your system and be realistic about which programs you want and need, and which programs you will never use. Remove any programs you never use or do not want. The more programs you have installed, the longer it will take for your system to run. Installed programs may be taking up resources that your computer can use somewhere else in the system, so only install and keep programs that you use and need regularly. Go through the games you have, and remove any that you have beat or that you do not play any more. This will improve your computer stability.

Install and use an anti virus program. Viruses and other harmful electronic infections pose a major threat to the stability of your PC. Some viruses, worms, and trojans may even cause physical damage to your hardware, or a fatal system crash. Only open e-mail attachments from people you know and trust. Some viruses are sent as an attachment, and when you open this attachment then the virus executes and starts causing problems. Ignoring attachments from strangers and regularly scanning your system for these programs will increase your computer stability.

The registry of your computer plays a big role in computer stability, and if there are errors or issues in the registry then the stability of your PC is compromised. This can be resolved by cleaning the registry thoroughly and repairing or removing any errors and unneeded keys or entries. When you remove an installed program, file fragments are sometimes left behind. These can clutter up the registry, and this causes your system to become unstable and may result in error messages being displayed.

A registry cleaner is the safest and easiest way to clean the registry and increase your system stability. This software installs quickly and easily, and then it is ready to go. Unlike manual editing, the registry cleaner can clean your registry in no time, usually just minutes. There is also no risk of deleting the wrong entry, which can be a fatal mistake for your system and occurs frequently during manual editing. A Registry cleaner will greatly improve your computer stability.
