Speed up your Slow PC in Easy Steps

This tutorial will explain Step to take in Speeding up your slow computer. A combination of issues may be slowing down your system and using up resources. You may be experiencing slow start-ups, and applications takes several minutes to open. Troubleshoot your computer and perform a few effortless tasks that will make your computer run faster and improve its performance.


Step 1:
Change your computer's BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) boot sequence to help save some start up time. Restart your computer and press the F1, F10 or ESC key to enter BIOS. Follow the onscreen instruction for navigating the BIOS menu. Choose the “Advanced BIOS” feature. Change the boot sequence, so that your hard drive is listed as the first boot device, and CDROM is the second boot device. Press the “ESC” key to save your settings and exit BIOS.

Step 2:
Click the “Start” button on your desktop and select “Run” from the menu list. Type “msconfig” in the run field box and press the “OK” button. Click on the “BOOT.INI” tab button. Change the default “Timeout” setting from “30” seconds to a lesser value, such as 10 or 20 seconds. Press the “OK” button.  A pop up box will appear on your desktop. Click the “Restart” button to reboot your computer.

Step 3:
Remove and uninstall software applications that you no longer use. Click the “Start” button and select “Control Panel” from the menu list. Click on the “Add or Remove Programs” link and highlight the application that you want to remove. Click the “Remove” button. Windows will uninstall the application and delete its files on your computer.  

Step 4:
Delete temporary files in your Windows folder. Click the “Start” button and choose “Search” from the menu list. Select “All Files and Folder” and type “*.tmp” in the field box under “All or part of the file name.” Use the drop down menu arrow to select your “Local Hard Drive,” such as (C:) and press the “Search” button. After Windows finishes listing all the files with the “.tmp” extension, highlight and delete the files that you no longer want to keep on your computer.

Step 5:
Remove applications and programs from the “Startup” list. Click the “Start” button and choose “All Programs” and then, select “Startup” from the menu list. Highlight the application or program that you want to remove. Right-click on your mouse and select “Delete” from the shortcut menu.

Use third-party register cleaning software to remove and fix invalid registry entries. Download freeware from the Internet, such as “CCleaner,” or “SlimComputer” management tool to help speed up and optimize your computer system.
