How often has it happened that you need to get some work done fast and your PC slowed down to a miserable pace? It can be very frustrating when you have to wait for windows to minimize or websites to open just because your laptop or PC isn’t running as fast as it used to. You haven’t done anything ‘fishy’ but have no clue why your computer is slowing down!
Technology can be confusing at times but you can make your PC run much faster by following some simple steps!
- People tend to install free software or programs that seem interesting for the moment but then don’t even take a second look at it! Go through the list of programs installed on your PC and uninstall anything and everything that you don’t use.
- Files can take up a lot of space on your hard disk drive and this can be causing your PC to become slow. So delete any file that you don’t really need including videos and MP3s. Games installed on the PC can also slow it down so if you are not playing it, send it off to the recycle bin!
- Your PC could be slowing down because it has limited RAM space. Check this up and upgrade it if you need your PC to run much faster. Having less that required RAM on your PC would mean that you can’t open too many windows or run multiple programs at one time.
- Defragment your hard disk drive regularly. Simple go to My Computer, then go to Local Disk. Click on the Tools button and follow the steps to defragment.
