Date Added: Feb 21, 2011
|Computer technology evolves at a rate faster than any of us can keep with. One of the most desired features in a system is that it should be fast, however, it becomes economically infeasible for one to keep on updating the system as soon as a new hardware component is released.
There are certain tools available within the system that help a user to enhance the speed without having to make expensive upgrades. The Defragmentation tool, that can be found within the System Tools category on Windows, compresses the space on the system's hard disks by deleting certain unnecessary files. This files have no use in particular and you can afford delete them. Running the defragmentation tool after every few weeks helps in maintaining a decent system speed.
Another cash-less method of boosting the speed of your PC is by cleaning the hard disks. Cleaning doesn't mean that you dismantle the system and spit-shine the hard disk and the processor. There are certain files stored in the hard disks like system logs and temporary internet files that take up valuable disk space and processor power. These files can be deleted using the disk clean-up available on Windows. In case you are looking at automated tools to quicken up your system feel free to visit our section on utilities
You can also free the disk space by deleting software applications that you hardly ever use or have no use for them at all. There are certain software that run in the background and put unwarranted load on the processor and the hard drives. Delete these software to increase the speed.
Also, the speed of PC almost entirely depends on the RAM in use. It is fairly easily to check the RAM by accessing the system information module of the PC. If the RAM is outdated and slow, a PC's speed will significantly increase if you upgrade the RAM with a more latest offering that has higher power.
