This article is going to give you some advice on speeding up your slow computer! A few tips and tricks I have learned working as a computer technician. If your computer is very slow at startup then there are a few main things you need to look at. I will list them here and go into detail on each one.
– Startup Items
– Temporary files (cookies etc.)
One of the main things that could be causing your computer to be loading slow at startup will be all the programs that are set to load, if you have 30 programs that all need to load when you first enter Windows then you can see why it is taking an age. To combat this you can either go into msconfig and untick all the programs you don’t need at startup.. or you can download a program called StartUpLite which gives you a list of all un needed programs at startup, from there you can tell it what to prevent from loading.
If you have any viruses or spyware on your computer then this can also delay startup times. Run a full virus/spyware scan through to ensure your computer is clean from any infections. If you don’t already have a scanner, I would suggest you run through a program called Malwarebytes and get a constant anti virus such as Avira or Avast (All can be found on Google).
Slow startup can be aided by a bad/corrupt/overloaded registry. Try running through a registry cleaner such as CCleaner.
These are all the files that aren’t needed on your computer. These files get onto your computer when you are viewing a web page. To clean these you might want to try giving your computer a full cleanup by using a program such as Cleanup or CCleaner. I hope some of this information helps to speed up your computer. Even if you manage to get your computer to the speed you want it I would suggest you to do a full virus scan of your computer, clean the registry and get rid of any unnecessary files on a regular basis.
