How to Fix: Slow Computer
We have all experienced computer frustration. I'm sure you can remember the last time you felt real anger and frustration towards your PC because it’s always...so... painfully...slow.
As a certified Microsoft engineer who has built and repaired computer systems for 20 years, I have seen (and fixed) the very worst cases of computer slow-down...
And I can tell you - having a slow computer isn't much fun for anyone, is it?
The truth is that computers become slow and bogged down in almost no time at all. Old, redundant and corrupt files build up quickly causing your P.C. to feel sluggish and slow causing crashes, system errors and serious computer slow-down just at times when you really need your computer the most.
Why is my computer running slow?
When your computer comes new from the factory it is setup to give you the very best performance. Everything has been fine tuned so that it runs fast straight out of the box...
However, over time you add new programs or delete old ones, install games or download files from the internet and when you do this, those optimal factory settings get overwritten and you can guess what happens...
Your computer starts to become slow, sluggish and bogged down.
...and you start to notice that it takes a little longer to load into windows, programs open a little slower and switching from program to program just isn't as quick as before.
But that's not the worst of it.
Another cause of a slow computer is when there are too many programs running on your computer at the same time. I'm not talking about the programs you can see running in the taskbar at the bottom of your screen but the many other programs running all at once in the background on your computer that you don't see.
These programs have built up over time and they remain there hiding in the background stealing your computer's processing power, memory and other resources.
And when this happens your computer becomes very slow and unresponsive, sometimes coming to a complete stop because all of your computer's resources are used up and there is no computing power left to do the things you want to use your computer for.
How Do I Speed Up My Slow Computer?
All of this is happening because you haven't maintained your computer regularly...
But that's not really your fault... you see, if you are like most computer users then...
