Simple Ways to Boost the Speed of Your PC

Just like the human body needs regular maintenance to stay healthy and fit, the computer system also needs care and attention for smooth and better functioning. Having a slow PC not only affects productivity but may also damage the data. Discussed below are some of the tips that can help in boosting the speed of PC.

It might sound cliché, but the system in-built cleanup and defragmentation tools are still the best solutions to clear the clutter of unwanted files and cache memory. The disk defragmentation configures the drive for the way it stores information whereas the disk clean-up search for the unused and large files and asks for their removal. As one uses the system, they keep stuffing the system with many programs and applications. Over the period of time, most of them are not being used, but the user forgets about them. These programs and applications keep sitting in the drive taking up large space. It is therefore to regularly uninstall the unused application and programs. Otherwise, they keep running inn background for the updates and the scans.

The system regularly creates some temporary files; sometimes as the recovery files and sometimes the autosaved files. Even when the program is closed these files sit in the pane. Thus these files must be regularly cleared off from the system. Following the sequence of steps may be flowed to delete temporary files; “My computer” > “Local Drive” > “Windows” > “Temp”. This can be explained as opening ‘My computer’ in the system and selecting the local drive which is mostly c drive and then opening the folder ‘Windows’ followed by opening the folder ‘Temp’. Using the right click of the mouse on the ‘Temp’ details can be selected under the ‘Option’ tab. The files older than the current date can be deleted using the ‘delete’ button.

In the case where the system uses regular internet for a longer duration, chances of viruses and bugs increases. It is therefore advised to run a virus scan. The scan not only detects the issue but also fixes the issue. This also frees up the space that the virus was consuming.

As the work progresses after installing the system, there arises the need for more space on the drive. It is generally recommended to keep 15% free space on the drive thus if this space is took, it is always better to get another drive with more storage. Low memory or RAM is another cause of slow performance. This is also affected with the increased number of programs and software in the system because the system has to access multiple applications with limited memory resulting in slow performance. Generally when the hard drive is extended the RAM is also improved for its storage.
