Tips To Speed Up Your Computer's Performance

Tips speed up this computer in principle is to do a regular treatment either in hardware or software, the selection of applications that "lighter" and simplified tune-up on some windows settings with the goal of reducing CPU load and RAM so that in the end the computer that we use will work more optimally.

Before we make any changes to default (tune-up) to speed up your computer's performance, it's good we preview some of the following factors that could lead to computer performance is not optimal and continues to slow down, they are:
  •  ignore the Minimum Hardware Requirements, when installing an application.
All software/applications have minimal computer hardware specifications that are needed so that the application can run normally. And we remember it is a minimal specification, so that the application can run optimally computer specifications we should be higher than the system requirement of the application.
  •  Overheating on the component hardware, some hardware components which often happens overheat is a Processor, Mainboard, VGA Card and Power Supply. Overheat on the hardware components usually occurs because of its optimal cooling system does not work (for example a Processor fan), the computer is placed in a room that does have a fairly high temperature or it could be because the computers that operate 24 hours nonstop.
  •  Live time, computer hardware also can not fight age, especially for the capacitor components on the mainboard and the hard drive. In General, a computer that has been operating above 5 years it's high time it was upgraded or replaced.
  •  too much software installed, many of the processes that are running in the background, there are viruses, malware and spyware resource consuming Processor and Memory, which in turn can cause our computer is very slow.

After we find out some of the common causes of a slow computer, then it is time that we now prepare and do some tune up windows to speed up our computer.
  1. Know our computer specifications, please feel free to upgrade components primarily for RAM is still under 1 GB. If you are interested in buying a new computer, it seems to me the minimum specification is currently a classmate computer Intel Core 2 Duo 2 GHz, DDR3 RAM, 250 GB SATA hard drive and a 530 Watt Power Supply.
  2. Clear the hardware component, open the CPU casing and clean the dust that clings to the mainboard, fan and other peripherals using subtle brush and vacum cleaner.
  3. When does our computer spec pas-install install one program that really needed it. It's good also to use alternative programs which have a small size and don't take up a lot of resource, such as:
    • Open Office, to open and edit documents
    • Foxit Reader, to read PDF documents
    • Opera Mini, for faster and safer browsing
    • 7 Zip to create and open a file compression
    • VLC Media Player to run multimedia files
  4. Clean your computer from viruses, spyware and malware with virus scanner such as Norman Malware Cleaner, and then install antivirus that does not weigh my own computer, use avast free antivirus and make sure it is always update.
  5. Disable Automatic Update in windows, instead download the latest hotfix and security updates by using Windows Update Downloader from 
    windows update manager
  6. Turn off/Disable Windows Services that are not used, the trick is as follows
    • Click start – run – type in: services.msc
    • Double click on the service that is not used, at the choice of the start up type select disable
    • Some service windows are usually unused include: Alerter, Clipbook, the Distributed Link Tracking Client, Fast User Switching, Help and Support, Indexing Services, IPSEC Services, the Netmeeting Remote Desktop Sharing, Portable Media Serial Number, Remote Desktop Help Session Manager, Remote Procedure Call Locator service, Remote Registry service, Remote Registry Service, Secondary Logon, Routing & Remote Access, Server, SSDP Discovery Service, Telnet, TCP/IP NetBIOS Helper, Upload Manager, Universal Plug and Play Device Host, Wireless Zero Configuration (for those who do not use wireless device). For computers that are not connected to the network disable also
    the computer Browser, Messenger, Windows Time.
     disable windows services
  7. Turn off some of the applications that run automatically at windows startup. I use tools Start-up Control Panel to control the program whatever need or don't need at start up when windows loads. Download the program at, and then run and disable some services that are not required
  8. Turn off System Restore on some partitions or entire drives. Besides being able to increase the speed of windows, mendisable this feature will avoid the boomerang that occurs due to a virus that is entrenched in the restore point files.
    • Here's how: right-click the icon My computer-click Properties-click System Restore tab – check Turn off system restore
  9. Clear your desktop of the shortcuts and files that are not often used. To save the data file you should save it in a folder or drive. Use a wallpaper that don't take up a lot of memory resource or just use the background color on the display of the desktop.
  10.  adjust Visual Effects for Better Performance,
    • Here's how: right click My computer click Properties click the tab – Advanced – Performance on the menu select settings,
    on the tab visual effects select Adjust for best Performance.
  11. Clear the temporary files that exist provide C: documents and Settings-namauser-Local Settings-Temp and C:Windows-Temp
  12.  Run the Disk Cleanup Wizard to compress old files and clean up the files that are not needed.
    • Do I click start – run – type: cleanmgr
  13. Run Disk Defragmenter on a regular basis to spruce up data-data stored on the hard drive.
    Do I click start – run – type: dfrg msc.
  14. Run Checkdisk tools to ensure the file structure on the hard drive and direktory free from error.
    • Here's how: Open Windows Explorer, right click on the hard drive in the scan, aka select Properties, select the Tools tab, select Error Checking, click Check Now.
    • check Automatically fix file system errors and Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors
  15.  Reinstall Windows and applications. If the computer where it was too much trouble, here's the last kick that we can do to make our computer back to the original performance, save all data to another hard drive or partition and then start again it all from scratch, reinstall Windows and other applications programs.
