10 tips to increase computer performance

Use a free software web browser


Not only are they considered more secure because it is open source, therefore anyone can help develop and fix it, it is also more obscure in general than the very popular Internet Explorer.


Clean corrupt windows registry this has a significant impact on computers' speed.  

 Intel Software and Partner Directory is a good place to select such cleaners. Other sites sources for different software selection are CNET, TuCows etc

 Defragment your hard drive every one to two weeks

This tool can usually be found by right clicking a hard drive on "My Computer" and clicking on "Properties." Then click the tab "Tools."

Some applications install things on your computer that make it run slower


Things such as having hundreds of fonts will make it load slower. Spyware and Ad-Ware will also make your computer run slower so get a good spyware cleaner like Spyware Doctor, AVG etc. Some anti-virus programs although needed for a Windows computer will slow down your computer (but it is very risky to use internet without security).

Try not to change in-depth system preferences

This can cause unexpected results. If you do change them and do not like the results and cannot undo them, execute "System Restore." It is much like a time machine for your computer. There are three different ways to execute this program:

  • Open "My Computer" and click "Control Panel." There should be a "System Restore" somewhere.
  • Click your start button. Then choose "All Programs." Then go to "Accessories." Lastly, choose "System Tools." There should the be a "System Restore."
  • In case it is not in both places stated above, it is then in this file directory: "C:/WINDOWS/system32/Restore" with the executable named "rstrui." This is only available in Windows XP, as far as I know.

If you have a lot of videos or music, keep them organized

Also, keeping them all loaded in programs such as Winamp may cause your computer to run more slowly.

Clear your e-mail in box regularly

This helps a bit, but only on Thunderbird, MS Outlook or other E-Mail clients that save stuff to your hard drive; with webmail such as Yahoo Mail it will make no difference.

Don't use a huge graphic picture as your background wallpaper

This makes your computer to work a lot harder to paint this again and again on desktop background. It's the same as trying to load a large digital picture; it takes forever, at least for slower computers.

Change the computer theme to "Windows-Standard" (Start > Control Panel > Screen and desktop > Themes)

 

Change the computers desktop to none, and change the color to black or some other basic color

(Start > Control Panel > Screen and Desktop > Desktop)
