How to increase the speed of a computer or laptop
Over time, the computer’s operating system, especially when it comes to Windows, becomes clogged and starts to run slower than before. The launch of the OS itself and most programs is so slow that it is time to fall asleep, and already downloaded applications respond to keystrokes with a desire more suitable for a snail or a tortoise.
It’s familiar, right? Let's try to figure out why this is happening.
Dust and overheating
A computer and a laptop, most of which have fans, are essentially vacuum cleaners, just very slow. Sooner or later, the intake grilles become clogged with dust and begin to resemble moss-covered trees. In this case, you should take a real vacuum cleaner and properly clean your computer - both outside and inside. At the same time, it makes sense to check whether the fans on the processor and video card are spinning properly.
By the way, overheating is the cause of not only brakes, but also glitches - for example, the sudden closure of programs or their unusual behavior.
Auto Backup is in danger
Another reason for the slow work of a computer or laptop is too many downloads during the operating system startup. To deal with "Startup", you can download and run an application called Autorun Organizer .
It allows you to control automatically started programs - disable and add them to the list, manage the queue and so on. The program is free for all users.
Too many programs in the computer's memory is one of the main causes of brakes. Press Ctrl-Alt-Del to start the task manager, and then sort the running programs by the amount of memory consumed.
At the very top of the list will be the most "gluttonous" applications. If it is a browser, mail and Skype, then, of course, they should not be touched. But if these programs are unknown to you, then study them more closely. Perhaps these are some not the most necessary tools, and they can be safely removed - from the same "Startup".
To cope with the extra programs in memory, you can use the program Wise Memory Optimizer . It is distributed free of charge.
In the course of work, the operating system adds a lot of temporary files to the hard disk, which, as it turns out, is not its task to delete, but your very.
On the same hard drive there is a so-called swap file - a kind of continuation of RAM. The less free disk space, the less space it can take, and the slower the system runs - especially if it is an old computer.
You can clean the disk using Disk Cleaner . It deletes unnecessary files, browsing history and other temporary data that were not deleted on time and take up disk space. In addition, it can be used to defragment, that is, organize fragments of files on the media. It also improves the performance of your PC or laptop.
