Analyzing Various PC Speed Up Techniques

Aug 18, 2007
If you want to speed up your PC, there are many options advantageous to you. Some of them are completely simple to do, and predictable, but the others would want you to certainly put in some efforts. Here is a brief analysis of dissimilar PC speed up techniques and what effects they will actually have on your computer:

(i) Increasing RAM. Many people, when their computers become slow, update their random access memories. This is where the impermanent files are placed by programs that run on the computer. Increasing RAM does show a quantitative increase in your PC's performance. But there are chances that this pepped up speed will not last for a long time. Within a couple of months, your computer could again become slow. The reason is that, the programs that will be writing on your RAM will continue to write new files. There are glitches in many programs that do not allow the old files to be deleted when new ones are written. Consequently, the new RAM will also soon be cluttered with needless files. Increasing RAM is needed for updating your computer, but it won't work for speeding up your PC for the long term.

(ii) Deleting programs from the computer. You can get a short spurt of additional speed on your PC by deleting some of the programs that are utilizing a great deal of space. You can easily delete programs from your computer's hard disk using the options in the Control Panel. But the problem is, most programs will not be deleted completely. Temporary files will need to be removed manually. In short, every program leaves some traces on the computer's memory.

(iii) Deleting temporary files. You can delete temporary files from the computer's program folders. This will free up some resources and speed up PC. But remember that you will not be able to find and remove each temp file that exists. Also, it will be easier to remove the temp Internet usage files, but much more difficult to remove temp program files.

(iv) Formatting PC. Many people use this PC speed up method as the last resort. This is when nothing else works. So many files are written on the computer that they just add up to the space. There may also be viruses come from the Internet, that automatically download files from the Internet and install them on the hard disk. If that happens, that can interminably slow down your PC. The result is to format the PC and make it like brand new once again. But you must bear in mind that formatting the PC will take a toll on its resources and also have you lose some data if it is present on the drive you are formatting.

(v) Memory optimization. This is by far the best PC speed up technique available today. This is a software tool that can be installed on your PC and can be kept running. It will work continuously at deleting the temporary files that accumulate on your PC and free up good space for new files to come in. As a result, your PC gets cleaned up, without needing to resort to drastic damaging techniques like formatting.
