Tips to increase speed of the computer:

Use following tips/ways which help you to increase the speed of the computer you are using.

Remove Temporary files:

Delete temporary files from your computer because these will share memory of your hard disk. Temporary files are those created during surfing the internet, using any software on PC. You can delete the temporary files by going to temporary folder by writing %temp%command in Run menu. Once you are in temp folder, delete all the files there. These will increase some memory already used by temporary files. You can use CCleaner or Glary utility software to do this.

Use Disk Defragmentation:

Use system tool named 'Disk Defragmentation'. This is the process of allocating files and folder in an arranged manner so computer can allocate future space in disk to files that will be written later. By defragmentation you can optimize search speed when you look for any file. Disk defragmentation will eventually increase the life of your computer's hard disk by efficiently managing data and its handling.

Clean Startup programs:

During startup, if you computer becomes slow, un-tick all the startup softwares by using MSCONFIG command which can be executed from Run. Un-tick all the softwares which require start up memory.

Keep PC Desktop clean:

Always use Desktop with less number of icons/items on it. These will save loading time during start up of PC during booting. This is one of the most frustrating moment for any person to wait for complete desktop to load due to heavy and large number of icons on the desktop. Clean it to load quickly.

Free up hard disk space up-to 15%:

Always use hard disk with at least 15% free space in all partitions. Because this amount is needed for defragmentation and accessing work during process of any program. Use disk cleanup program of Windows to clean unnecessary files and folders.

Use Registry Cleaner:

Always use registry cleaner software to remove unnecessary and old registries of your computer's operating system. Registry cleaner helps you manage and maintain your computer task.

Use default Theme:

Always have a habit of using default theme that came with your PC because changing themes that are very attractive will increase memory and RAM usage. This ultimately will lower the speed of the computer when essentially you needed to use it at increased speeds.

Use of updated anti-virus software

Always use antivirus software with latest updates to remove and spyware/malware/Trojan horse and dangerous viruses. Some virus lowers down the speed of the computer by using computer memory resources. Always scan complete system once a week to remove unnecessary threats.

Computer speed mostly depends on RAM size and processor speed. If possible use latest processor and have RAM size compatible with it.
