What to do if your computer works slowly

What to do if your computer works slowly

I think that almost every user encountered slow performance, errors, freezes when working at the computer (laptop). Moreover, the brake can be on older machines and new… In most cases this problem is solved. So, you have all worked fine, and suddenly the computer started… for no reason at all slowly work. First and foremost, I recommend to pay attention on some tips that will help get rid of the brakes and the computer freezes:

1. Registry.
The add / remove programs. When you install, and then when you delete programs accumulate every “file” garbage, which once again stress the CPU at work. With the help of special programs, and in particular, the program CCleaner, it’s easy to clean the registry.

Make it simple: run the program, select the tab “Registry”. Make sure that all the checkboxes were marked, and then click “Search for problems”. This will start the search of errors, invalid extensions, rules, etc. Next, click the Fix button and the program deletes all these unnecessary files, relieving to some extent the CPU.

2. Overloaded the system disk.
Most often, the system drive on which Windows is installed or another system, is the disk, therefore, prudent not to keep on that drive large amounts of information, such as movies, music, photos, etc.
For these purposes, choose another disk. Remember, the files or folders that you save to the desktop are saved on the C drive.

3. Startup.
Often, installing some programs, we do not notice how these programs are added to startup. That is, when the system boots, when we turn on the computer, these programs are also loaded and starts to work, although not needed at the moment. Increase the loading time of the computer, memory is full.
To get to the startup folder using the program “Run” (look in “start menu”), in the dialog box type msconfig and hit OK. Next, go to the tab “startup”. Uncheck programs that you do not need to boot with the system. Click “OK”.

4. The paging file
Uses the swap file when low on memory. If you are running multiple programs at once, or any demanding games the computer freezes, the paging file setting may to some extent solve the problem.

Where is the swap file:

Windows XP:
“Start – control Panel – System – Advanced – Performance – Settings – Advanced – Change”

10/7 Windows/Vista:
“Start — control Panel — System — advanced system settings — Performance – Settings – Advanced – Virtual memory – Change“

The swap file is better positioned on the drive on which the system is installed, in most cases, this is drive C. Then set the file size somewhere 1500-2000 MB. Then “OK” restart your computer.
The minimum size of the paging file should be equal to the maximum. For example, 1024-1024, 2042-2042.

5. Viruses.
Some viruses slow down the performance of programs. Make sure that your anti-virus is fine, it works and updated. Threats, intrusion-free test utility from “Doctor Web” – “DrWebCureit”.
