You might have used or overused your freshly loaded and configured system for a while and there are fair chances that you have started complaining of slow PC performance. Every machine requires proper maintenance and care for functioning properly and same is the case with your computer, which if not maintained properly, may show a diminishing performance with time. Here are some simple tips which can help you in boosting your system performance even if you are an average computer user.
1) PC Protection: The most common reason for a slowdown in system performance is the entry of malicious programs and viruses that along with reducing performance, may prove to be harmful for security and integrity of your system and the data it contains. All the viruses use up your system resources and Internet for functioning and biggest gate for the entry of such viruses is the Internet; so you should ideally consider strongly securing your PC on this level. Thus, you must ensure that you use the best quality Anti-virus suite and properly update it from time to time. Apart from this, you should also update your operating system as these updates are essential in patching up loopholes in the OS.
2) Proper organization and clean-ups: With prolonged usage of PC without necessary maintenance, the files in your system may get cluttered and may subsequently damage the performance of PC. For instance, an unorganized desktop with lot of files may result in slower start-ups and increased time in switching between desktop and a program. Other than this, accumulation of temporary files and multiple useless run-time processes related to small utilities also eat away the resources of your system and may lead to a pathetic system performance. For this, you should regularly clean temporary folder, uninstall all the unnecessary programs and defragment hard disk.
3) Repair: The most significant thing requiring repair in your system is registry which may get overpopulated with corrupt or broken registry. For this, there are many registry repairing software available and many of them are freeware. Many other essential system files may also get corrupted overtime leading to slow performance or total breakdown of operating system. For this, you should use appropriate utilities as a remedial measure. In case you are looking at applications to speed up your system feel free to visit our section on utilities
