How to Fix Slow PC Performance
There is nothing marginally irritating for a person who’s working on a computer than the experience of sitting in front of a computer that takes forever to load and takes an eternity to follow every command. This sometimes has to do with the age of the machine, but much depends on how nice we treat the gadget. Here are a few tips for “how to fix slow PC performance“.
Kick out less used programs!
The package of your PC has a lot of programs that are installed at the time of purchase itself, and we don’t use a lot of them that often, or use them at all! You are always free to kick these files out and you can do so by going to start, control panel and then select Add or remove programs. Scroll through, highlight the ones you don’t use more often and click uninstall.
Clean out the closet
There are many temporary files that we save in our computer that stay forever because we simply forget the existence of those files. We recommend you to perform a “useless file” hunt once in a while, so as to remove files that aren’t worth keeping!
Expand your hard disks reign!
If at all you don’t have the liberty of cutting short your files and deleting programs, then you have no other option but to expand your hard disks size! We would ideally recommend you to have a 512 GB hard drive and in case you use your PC for heavier works, there are storage units available that are over 1TB.
Don’t let the apps sneak on you
As soon as you start your computer, there are a few apps that will for sure sneak on you and will eat up the entire processing! We recommend you to keep an eye on the programs that use the background memory! You can look for apps that use background memory in the task manager, by right clicking on the taskbar and going to task manager.
In case you want to control the apps, please go to the start menu, type run, and in the box that appears, key in msconfig. There pops up a list telling you what all programs start with the “Startup” of the company too.
Do you even RAM, bro?
We talked about expanding your hard disks, ROM. But expanding RAM is a whole different ball game and will support your Slow PC perform better!
