Over time, the speed of computers may reduce with use and routine actions like opening files, folders, surfing the net and other activities take unbearably long time to get done. This happens as a result of the accumulation of temporary files which leaves the hard drive encumbered. Rather than having to buy a new computer, there are some steps you can take to speedup slow computer. Below are some of them:
Uninstall Unused Programs
We are often tempted to bulk up on programs and files in the hope that one day, they would be of use but just like that like those pile of antiquities underneath your garage, you are very unlikely to use them. Some of these programs don’t even stay idle; they run background processes even when not in use. To remove all these programs, open the control panel’s programs, scroll through the list of installed software and uninstall those not in use while being careful to leave programs your computer hardware needs.
Automatically Delete Temporary Files
Temporary files amass in your computer from everyday tasks and can remain on your hard disk, slowing the computer down. Riding your computer of these records including internet history and cookies frees up space in your hard drive, speeding up your PC.
Expand Your Hard Drive Size
Cleaning out temporary files from your hard disk is often not enough to increase the speed of your computer especially when your computer gets 75 percent full. If your jobs require lots of memory and hard drive space, you would need to expand your hard drive space to accommodate the extra files.
