Everyday I see people dealing with slow computers and I have to laugh at how easy the problems are to fix. If you are interested in learning these easy solutions, then read this article to find out more.
First of all, lets start with the reasons why you computer is running slow and how to fix them:
Your computer has a spyware. You can get spyware when you are searching around on the Internet or when you download a questionable piece of software. Spyware runs in the background while you are using the computer and uses memory.
You can get free spyware checking utilities on the Internet. These programs will remove spyware much like a virus scan tool does.
Your computer has too many programs. With too many programs on your computer, you may be using up too much memory. Think about it as your computer having too much on it’s plate at once.
Try removing old programs that you are not using anymore and restart your computer when you are finished. Windows has a built in tool for uninstalling programs which can be found in the Control Panel.
Your computer’s registry is full of old information which is slowing it down. This is the most common problem that I see when I look at computers. When you remove programs from you computer, these old programs leave behind little pieces of code and data. This information builds up over time and slows down your computer a lot.
Find a registry checking tool that will search out this garbage information and remove it.
