The first, what first. Make sure that your PC is not infected by a virus, worm or other malware

Used has a infected computer is scanned, a computer is painfully slow as a virus infected. More tech-savvy users, the speed of the infected computer depends on the type of malware. To be honest, it does. Based on my personal experience, I can however say that while some malware are specifically designed for computer slow and unresponsive no longer making the most malware tend to reduce computer performance.

It is if your computer is infected, is the first thing, that you need to do a deep scan your entire hard drive, to remove all traces of the virus. Also, scan your secondary storage devices to ensure that they are also clean. Make also sure that follow best security measures to avoid infection in the future.

Remove unused and unnecessary programs

Now that we are sure that your computer due to a virus is not slow, get rid of all unnecessary programs, you must have installed on your PC. To remove these programs, go to programs in Control Panel and uninstall your unnecessary programs. If you’re like most Windows users (myself included) are and a hard time figuring out which programs to uninstall, there seem to be all of them important, follow this rule: If you have not used the program in the last few months, it is probably unnecessary. It is better to uninstall the program, given the fact that you can install it again if necessary. It is also a good idea, remove all useless software that came with your computer. If you want to, you can remove unused Windows functions, as well as to other sound on your operating system.

Try you faster alternatives for your daily programs

If you have applications that use too much computing power to operate, you better off with applications, the same job as they but quicker to replace. Some resources are hogging applications that you can replace,:-
1) most resources intensive anti virus software can be replaced by the light Microsoft Security Essentials .
2) Microsoft Office can be replaced with OpenOffice, an open-source alternative that has great additions of lots of.
3) Adobe Reader can be replaced with the free Foxit Reader.
4) the newer versions of Internet Explorer (Internet Explorer 10 and higher) fewer resources are intensive. If you have used an older version, it’s time to update IE or replace it with Mozilla Firefox or Google chrome. This gives you even faster Internet speeds.

Remove unnecessary startup programs

Startup programs are programs that automatically at each start a user logs on. Not only you lead a slow start, but they also persistently run valuable system resources (CPU and RAM), until she manually, continuously consumes you when they are running. Disable unnecessary startup items produces a faster start and a fast computer, means that these applications not continuously, more RAM and CPU for the operations, you have on the computer run as. 

To disable unnecessary startup programs, enter Msconfig in the search bar in the start menu (in Windows 10 , Windows 7 and Windows Vista) and on the start screen in Windows 8 and 8.1 . Give Windows XP the following in the field Run dialog. This will start the system configuration utility . Click “Startup” tab on the , and disable all applications that you think are necessary not when you start the computer. Start your computer to display the changes. Because your security products not clear thinking, because, make your computer more vulnerable to infections.

Run your computer often

PC speed

Which requires that you use your computer for a long time. Each time you close a running program in Windows. It frees the memory that the program was occupied. However, it may happen that some parts of the store does not exempt, making fewer system resources available for use, which ultimately leads to a slower PC. When you restart your computer, you will receive these occupied areas in the memory released. Although this memory problem in newer versions of Windows has been fixed, it remains restart a good idea, the computer at least once per day.

Check your hard disk for errors

In the course of time as you use your computer, chances are that some errors could creep in, on your hard drive affect the performance of your computer. The best way is utility in all versions of Windows to solve this problem with the built-in check disk available. To use it, run the command from chkdsk/r at the command prompt. Remember, open the command prompt as an administrator. It may be prompted to restart of the computer. Run from Y the PC restart. chkdsk / R command scans your hard disk for errors and restores human-readable data. Depending on the size of the hard drive, this step may take some time. Phenomenal, this step could increase the performance of your computer, if there are a lot of errors on your hard disk.

Make sure that sufficient free disk space

System speed is not only dependent on CPU and RAM. If your hard drive about 95% is full, notice, that your system not yet with the fastest speed was running. This happens because Windows require empty space for swap file to increase in size and also as a space for temporary files. It is essential that the more cluttered and filled a hard drive, the harder it is to read. To resolve this issue, delete unnecessary data or move to external storage devices.

Repair protected system files from Windows

As you use your computer, is it possible that one or more system files corrupted or damaged are, which could adversely affect the performance of your system. Therefore, it is important to check whether all your system files are original and behaving as they should. The best way to get your system files check is through the System File Checker. Open the command prompt as an administrator to run the System File Checker, and then run sfc/scannow.

Make computer fast

Use a registry cleaner to keep your registry in good shape

Which is Windows registry a place holds information about all installed programs and active system files on your system. Over time, how to install and uninstall programs, the registry with useless entries that could increase reading difficult can get stuffed.

Delete temporary files

Temporary files are stored on your computer, because Windows works. They are files, the list of your most recently accessed files, log files, Internet history, form history, cookies and temporary Internet files contain. In the course of time, the number is increased of the these files and cleaning important. CCleaner (see above) you can she or the built-in Windows Disk Cleanup in utility to clean by running cleanmgr.exe , run dialog box. You can set that a disk cleanup so that it happens automatically.

Disable Windows search indexing service

Fast computer

Find the Windows indexing service scans all files and folders on your system and stores information about them in a database search to make faster. This is of course, consumption of resources. If you do not frequently use Windows search or are ready to trade faster searches for a faster computer (as you should be), disable the indexing service.

High energy scheme if you your computer on a battery and note who’s slow change, change the power scheme on the high performance system speed to increase. Keep in mind, that’s the amount the power consumption of the computer to increase. To change the power scheme, power options you from the control panel. You can directly on the search for power options in Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 from the screen/start menu.

Check you, if your computer

It is overheated, if your computer is overheating, then it is possible that it to slowly run your computer is created. And this, because most slow down modern processors when the machine is overheated, so that the computer can cool down.

Prevent overheating, make sure that the fan is working properly and that no dust, plug it ventilation slots, because it prevents air flow leads poor cooling. Clean your PC case with a light brush and place it somewhere, where can it be cooled effectively by air. If you are using a laptop, a cooling pad might be useful.

You defragment your hard drive

When Windows saves a file on your hard drive, it doesn’t for a single place look to save your file as a whole. Instead, the fragments of the file stores at random, i.e. at any empty space to store you will find the fastest. For this reason the fragments of a single file scattered all over a hard drive. A hard drive that has many files distributed, such as this as is fragmented. Of course this leads to slower access times file because Windows must these pieces and put them together (something like a puzzle), before the file can be accessed.

Defragment harddrive to increase PC speed

This is what corrected defragmentation. When you defragment a hard disk, the scattered pieces of a file are compiled and stored on the hard disk in continuous cell (assuming a hard drive to a large number of cells, with each cell representing a certain space occur).

to defragment your hard disk, you can the built-in Windows defragmentation utility . It can be browsed on the home page / menu in Windows 10, 8 & 8.1 and is located at the beginning > programs > Accessories > system tools in earlier versions of Windows. To increase, use ReadyBoost to speed up your Windows computer

If you have a computer, not enough RAM, will give you a significant improvement in the speed and can run from a flash drive with ReadyBoost technology. As with ReadyBoost, the Flash drive is stored a cache in the files that you need immediately, giving faster access times than had stored these files on a hard disk.

Remember the ReadyBoost straightens up briefly after the condition of your Flash drive and speeds of devices which were RAM to increase. If you already have a sufficient amount of RAM, that very little to no improvement in speed could see her chances. Reinstall Windows

This is one of the more drastic methods and should only be used, if all the above methods fail to bring a significant increase in the speed of your computer.

Speed up Computer

If you have still not Windows installed in a really long time, it is possible that the system with useless clutter got stuck as due to constant use, has, that no amount of tweaking his State to resolve. Reinstalling Windows is the only option.

Reinstalling Windows brings a significant increase in the speed, but gives you a new PC without your software and customization. Modify according to your needs will take much time though, but this is something that you have to sacrifice for a faster PC.

If you are using Windows 10, Windows 8 or Windows 8.1, you can update your PC without your installed apps and settings. To your Windows 8 to update PC, open update / restore by going change to PC settings from “the settings button, which appears when you move the mouse pointer on the right side of the screen. Windows 10 users can search directly from the start menu “Refresh”. Click below, recreation. Then under your PC without files , click on upgrade get started.

Upgrade to a solid-state drive

Although solid state drives are much faster to write and read data than older optical drives, their high price is something that keeps them out of the range of many. If you are able to get one for your PC the change in speed will be yet, immediately visible.

When all else fails, get more RAM

Contains RAM or random access memory all files of currently running programs, which are now required by the computer. Accessing files from RAM is much faster than doing the same from a hard disk. This means that more RAM you have, more programs that you run.
