How to Speed up your PC

To Speed up your PC is a common saying today. Thousands of troubleshooting steps, fixes, resolutions are available online to fix this slow computer or speed up your computer issue. However most of the time majorities of them do not prove to be worked well. There may be two major reasons behind this failure. First the solutions are given are not up to the mark i.e. they cannot resolve the issue. Another reason might be that a user cannot apply the steps or follow the sequence properly. Also there are few solutions that are available online, very difficult to follow from a user's point of view. A technical person can perform those steps but it is very difficult to get them followed by a naïve user. So the solution always should be simple and effective that a user can also perform in order to speed up his PC. I want to share few important steps that can be performed easily by anyone who runs PC.

1. Use disc cleanup utility: - Disc cleanup is one of the great features windows has provided. This is not only effective but also very easy to use. You just need to go to my computer's properties OR computer (in windows vista and windows 7) and click on disc cleanup. It scans for unnecessary files and remove them from your PC. This is very good feature to Speed up your PC for sure.

2. Defrag your PC after a certain interval: - After a long while using a PC continuously it becomes fragmented due to various files and folder inside a disc. There is a facility which window provides and that is defragging the disc. In disc defragmentation all the scattered files get defrag and which saves memory and speed up overall performance of your PC.

3. Run sfc /scannow: - This is again a great tool provided by Microsoft in all windows system. This utility repairs windows damaged and corrupted files and intact them. With windows XP an installation CD was required however in windows vista and windows 7 the essential files are already backed up and when we run sfc /scannow command, it takes files from the backup storage.

4. Use good antivirus programs: - Virus is a strongest cause behind a slow PC. In order to Speed up your PC we need to run a good and updated antivirus program. There are various freeware also available nowadays. You may use them they really work fine.

5. Do not use more than an antivirus program in your PC: - This also creates problems in your PC if you are using more than one antivirus programs in the same pc. If you are doing the same so remove one of them.

6. Do not use any unnecessary program in the PC: - Using lots of programs even they are not important or are not being used now is necessary unessential. I have personally seen in thousands of PC users they have kept them as preservation and they even do not know much about them. I would suggest uninstall them if there is any such program in your PC. These program conflict with each other, takes CPU usage and resulting in slow performance of the PC.
