When noticing the computer is running slow, some will decide to reinstall the system trying to increase computer. But they rarely notice that with the reinstallation of the programs, the computer speed will also become slower. So how do we easily increase computer speed without an entire system reinstallation?
Here are some very easiest ways that we can do in daily like to increase computer speed or avoid a slow computer:
Firstly, Free up as much disk space as possible, which includes:
1) Uninstall some unwanted programs from Add/ Remove Programs.
2) Use Disk Cleanup utility within System Tools to remove temporary Internet files, downloaded program files, Windows temporary files such as error reports, empty the Recycle Bin and so no. (Note: Normally, temporary Internet files are generated every time we visit a website and they take large amount of valuable disk space, which greatly slow down computer speed)
Secondly, Increase speed to data.
1) If using Windows XP, Microsoft reserves 20% of your available bandwidth for its own purposes. To increase computer speed, first we should get back the reservable bandwidth: Click Start->Run->type “gpedit.msc” to open the group policy editor-> go to Local Computer Policy->Computer Configuration->Administrative Templates-> Network->QOS Packet Scheduler->double click “Limit Reservable Bandwidth” and then change the default 20 to 0.
2) Use the Disk Defragmenter to rearrange files on the hard drive, making them always stay close coherently and then much easier to be accessed to: go to Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> Disk Defragmenter.
Thirdly, well protect the computer against Viruses /spyware.
No matter what kind of computers you are using (old or brand-new computer), an anti-virus program is needed. Besides, it is necessary for us to regularly scan the computer for viruses and upgrade to the latest virus database.
Fourthly, Frequently optimize Windows registry.
When installing/uninstalling programs, or browsing the websites, there will lots of valid registry entries left on the computer. As the main soul of a computer, registry decides the proper running of the computer. If corrupted, problems like system slowness, freezing-ups, blue-screen and crashes will come on the neck of another. So do remember to always optimize windows registry.
