How do I speed up my computer and what program is best to use? Everyone is looking for a quick and easy way to speed up their computer. There are hundreds of programs out that claim to do just that. Unfortunately there is no “one button fixes all” software available that actually does what it claims to do. Don’t take this the wrong way I’m by no means saying that you can’t make your Windows PC faster again, just that there is not a single fix that will do it for you.
Windows computers slow down for several different reasons.
- Services and processes loading in the background
- Corrupt Windows components
- Left over program files, processes, and tasks
- Malware threats on your computer
A lot of different things happen to a computer over time. It’s even possible for these things to happen to a new computer. The Internet driven world we live in today makes keeping a computer clean and healthy a very difficult job.
Windows Services and Processes Loading in the Background
When you install a new program on your computer the program being made available to you is not all that happens. A lot of programs load processes and services at startup. These services and processes run in the background. These processes and services add up and cause a computer to work harder.
Computers work a lot like we do. As we are asked to do more our ability to perform is slowed. We can only concentrate on so much at one time. A computer works the same way. It can only perform so many tasks at once. Once it reaches a certain number of tasks some must wait in line. This causes a computer to work slower.
Removing unwanted and unneeded processes, services, and scheduled tasks from your computer allows it to process what is important. This will help your computer perform better on the things that you need it to.
Corrupt Windows Components
Windows is made up of a lot of different small components. Some of these components can become corrupt. You may not even notice when this happens but it will contribute to decreasing the performance of your computer. When your computer slows down checking the health of these Windows components and repairing any that are not functioning correctly will definitely increase the speed of your computer.
Left Over Program Files, Processes and Tasks
When you uninstall a computer from Windows it is assumed that the program is no longer present on your computer. Unfortunately this is not always the case. Windows does not scan your computer for every component of a program when it uninstalls it. It usually follows the directions given by the software developers. This can cause several different problems.
When parts of a program are left behind processes, services, and scheduled tasks will still load. This is actually one of the ways that some types of malware are able to remain on your computer. Some less than honest software may act like it is being removed when you uninstall it when parts are being left behind that still run and cause problems with Windows. Some of these program parts even open doorways that allow other malware to access your computer.
Malware Threats on Your Computer
It’s just the reality of today. Accessing the Internet means that you are likely to get some type of malware on your computer. These threats will slow down your computer. Some of them make your computer nearly unusable. Even with the best and most up to date malware protection chances are still high that you are going to become infected at some point. The sad truth is that 1 in 3 computers world wide are infected with some type of malware.
There’s Not Just One Way To Speed Up Your Computer
The reality is that there is no “one button fixes all” solution to the problems that can cause your computer to slow down. It is impossible for a single program to address every single possibility that may be slowing your computer down. The only way to ensure your computer is fast again is by using dozens of different programs and utilities to diagnose and repair the problems. Most of these programs and utilities are available on the Internet. The best way of ensuring your computer is repaired is to have a computer technician help you.
