Anyway, you may have come across a situation where you see a lack of
performance of your PC (using MS Windows); so this article will help to

tools available for use with the registry, however only about five have

leaders is RegCure.
It was last year’s Most Popular PC Repair product. RegCure is the
easiest and best. It is easy to get scammed with inferior products so
it’s best to choose a registry cleaner with an excellent record.
2. Clear temporary files
If you want to improve the performance of your computer, one of the
easiest steps that you can take is to clear temporary files. These files
are often referred to as ‘internet files’ or ‘cache.’ When you visit
online websites, the computer system that you are using will store the
pages in the cache.
This helps to view the pages more quickly when you visit them in the
future. Typically, when you visit a page on the internet, the internet
browser that you are using will have to download certain components in
order to accurately display the page. While this is beneficial, it can
cause some issues with your computer if too many files are preserved on
the system. The following steps will detail how to go about clearing
temporary internet files from your system:
1. First, you should go to the ‘Control Panel’ of your system.
2. Once the page has loaded, you will want to search for the option
3. Once you click on ‘Internet Options’ make sure that you are on the
4. Then, simply select ‘Delete Temporary Internet Files.’
3. Defrag your hard drive
Over time, the data on your hard drive gets scattered. De-fragmenting
your hard drive puts your data back into sequential order, making it
easier for Windows to access it. As a result, the performance of your
computer will improve. An excellent registry cleaner will allow show you
how to speed up your PC using defrag techniques. Remember that the hard
drive is the cornerstone of your system. If it is in trouble your system
4. Incorporate a spyware elimination programme
Incorporating a spyware elimination programme can be extremely
beneficial when it comes to the overall performance of your PC.
Spyware is a type of software that has unique behaviours on the
system. It has the potential to gather information about you that is
considered to be personal, create advertisements that can slow down the
performance of a PC, and it has the ability to reconfigure the actual
settings that are part of your system. If your system has spyware on it,
it may attempt to place advertisement on to the internet browser that
you use, it may install a program that runs in the background, and it
could even crash your system altogether.
It is essential that you run a spyware elimination programme at all
times to ensure that your system is operating at optimal levels.
5. Adjust your computer’s visual effects
Windows provides a number of resources hogging and interesting visual
effects like animated windows and fading menus. These effects, however,
can slow down your computer and kill your PC speed. By Altering your
preferences and performance needs you can learn how to increase PC Speed
in seconds. This is one of Microsoft’s tips on how to increase PC speed
6. Manage start up programmes
When your computer is turned on, there are certain programmes that
come up in the task box near the clock of the system. In some instances,
having too many loading at start up can result in your computer running
in a sluggish manner and can affect the general performance of the
computer system. If you are running Windows XP or Windows Vista, it is
important to use the ‘Windows Defender’ in order to manage the
programmes that start when your computers do. For XP users, you must
visit the Microsoft website to download.
Vista has this programme inbuilt to it. The following steps outline
how to manage programmes with Windows Defender:
1. Click on the ‘Start’ buttonme
2. Select ‘All Programmes’
3. Locate ‘Windows Defender’
4. Next, you will see a list that displays all programs that are
initialized when your computer starts. Simply highlight a programme and
select either ‘Disable’ or ‘Remove.’
5. Be sure to restart the computer for the system settings to
7. Use an external hard drive
When it comes to performance, a lot of emphasis is placed on the hard
drive of a computer. If the hard drive becomes bogged down with
different programs and applications, it is quite likely that it will
slow your system down. I highly recommend implementing the use of an
external hard drive. You should use the external to install programs and
to keep files that are important to you. In turn, your computer is not
being bogged down by unneeded software, applications, shortcuts, and
other types of files.
8. Remove unnecessary programmes
Removing unnecessary programs from your computer will boost your
computer’s performance. For an example if your computer has MATLAB,
Photoshop, Macromedia products installed and you are not using them very
frequently then you can remove them to increase the memory (both
virtual, RAM and Hard disc space).
If you have a lot of programs on your computer, it takes up space on
your hard drive that can be used to focus on programs that you do use.
As a result, performance is hindered. Simply go into the “Control Panel”
of the computer that you are using and choose “Add/Remove Programs” for
Windows XP, or “Programs” for Windows Vista. Scroll through the list and
highlight any program you no longer require, and select “Change/Remove”
in XP, or “Uninstall” in Vista. Once you have removed all the programs
that you no longer need, be sure to reboot your computer so that the
system settings can take place.
Note: There is good utility software called ‘EasyCleaner’ that helps
you to clear registry files, unnecessary files, temporary files, remove
installed programmes, see the hard used disc space and etc. You can
download it and use it to make your windows PC runs faster!
Important: We assume that you use original windows operating systems
? (if not the next hint is not applicable).
Try to keep the OS and also the antivirus programme updated so that
the malicious programs can’t hurt your PC!
