Is your computer as slow as can be? We know your pain! There is nothing more frustrating than a computer slow and/or freezing computer especially while your up against a deadline. So, here are 5 ways to make your computer faster!

 

1-      Restart your machine! Sometimes computers are slow because they have not been restarted in a few days. Computers can slow down or freeze due to temp files getting huge and programs hanging due to inactivity. Restarting will delete these temp folders and free up the hanging program.

2-      Clean up your internet temp files! Those little files can make your daily internet search a nightmare. Make sure you clean up at least once a week. What happens if you don’t? The files stay in your temp folder and that can prevent websites from opening the correctly! So clean them out for a better and easier site surfing experience!

3-      Scan for Malware & Viruses! We all know how harmful the viruses and malware can be. It is very important to have an anti-virus and anti-malware software installed in your computer. Make sure you scan either manually or automatically every week to avoid much bigger issues!

4-      Look for a driver issue! That may sound like the last thing you could think of but it happens a lot. Drivers that aren’t working correctly or are corrupt can slow down, freeze, and even crash your computer. Make sure you have the latest drivers for your machine.

5-      Start up programs! A lot of the time if you aren’t paying attention during the install process, you miss the check box the says “start this program when windows starts.” If you have a slower computer already and many things starting up every time you turn it on, it may take you 10 minutes just to be able to use after you turn it on. To avoid this, turn off all programs from starting up automatically when you start windows except the ones that you really need. It will save you a lot of “waiting” time.

We hope these little tips help you get a better working computer. However, if all fails or you have ran out of patience to deal with such a slow computer, give us a call! We’ll make sure your computer starts working properly within hours at the best price around!
