Now you can fix it! Provided you’re using Windows. Computers are much like apple sorting hoppers, many people don’t know how they work, and are confused when they work slow or break down. There are simple and easy things that you can do to increase your PC’s startup time and speed. You see, most PC’s are built not by you, but someone else, filled with bloatware and useless utilities these PC’s are sluggish and can be helped!
MSCONFIG: The easiest and quickest way to speed up your startup is to go to START, RUN, type msconfig and hit enter. This will open up your system configuration window and will allow you to easily disable the startup of unwanted programs that are taking up precious system resources. In the startup tab, click the disable all, don’t worry these programs will not be missed. Also go to the services tab, and at the bottom click hide all Microsoft services, and disable all. If you see something in the services tab that you constantly use and want to start up such as Steam, re-enable it with a checkbox click.
SLIMCLEANER: One of the best cleaning programs around this little item does practically anything you would want. It provides online ratings and feedback for programs that you have installed and will let you know it they are useful or not. It has a defrag tool, performance utility, but by far the best thing this program has is the cleaner. Inside your PC are temp files, little bits of info that are not necessary to have, that take up space. Slimcleaner will search your hard drive for these unnecessary items and delete them. You’d be surprised how much junk it will clean the first time you run it!
ANTI-MALWARE: One of the main reasons for systems to become slow is Malware. Evil little programs that are built for one purpose, to make you miserable. However, if you have a less powerful PC, an anti-malware program will make your system sluggish. This is not suggesting that you will shut off or uninstall your Anti-malware, but you must find one that fits your PC. Avast! is a very good anti-malware program, however it can be a resource hog at times. Microsoft Security Essentials seems to be a good balance between resource usage and protection, it’s free too. But if you want something that doesn’t use resources go for Malwarebytes, which doesn’t offer free realtime protection, so you’ll have to scan regularly.
