15 Steps to Speed Up your Computer

By: p.n

Your question, I can accelerate my computer? Can be frustrated when your computer is very slow. Now you can save yourself the aggravation especially when you are very busy working. We show you 15 steps to be taken to speed up your computer.

Allow me to enumerate them: As I have said, also, on my previous articles

1. Defrag your computer at least once every two weeks (I do that once a week). Going to start> Accessories> System Tools> reconstruction. You can click on the "comment" first, before you choose reconstruction, which will tell you whether you need to reconstruction. Simply reconstruction, even if the reports do not need.

2. To Disk Clean Up, at least once every two weeks (again, will do so once a week). Going to start> Accessories> System Tools> disk cleaning. It analyzes your disk and will create reports. I propose to delete files from the recycle bin and files found in the temporary files. Note: We avoid compressing files. It is your call.

3. Exygianei your program files, delete and uninstall unwanted programs on your computer. Go to the control panel> add remove programs. Make sure to restart your computer after the removal or elimination of the program, so that the complete deletion will take place.

4. Delete all files (temporary files and cookies from the computer). Here's how: open a browser. On top of the browser click tools> internet options> delete files and then delete the cookies. History that makes you (0). Others wants to at least 10. I think it is always my number to (0).

5. You must be very careful to install or download programs. Make sure that you need, if not please just avoid it. Uninstalling is really hard. Many retailers have all the power they have to suspend the program on your computer!

6. Always turn on the firewall. I suggest you only have one and a firewall from viruses. You have less safer if you have two viruses, running (I know people who want to have two viruses, the programs running on their computer, I do not know why.)

7. Run anti programs - the spyware. I trust spybot, search and destroy and Adware from Lavasoft. SD will run every week, to make immunize them before making the entire program to run. It will run each week adware, after far too long to run spybot search and destroy.

8. Run a full scan using antivirus software at least daily (some done once a week). Orycheio is scheduled at 3:00 am Daily.

9. Avoid multi-tasking too! Meaning to say, to avoid opening too many programs and all this while running in the taskbar.

10. Also, we propose to obtain a dual hard disk (which I know is now in the Common Market), one for the operating system and the other only for all programs, and database files. This way, the computer boots to a hard disk.

11. Also check the performance of your computer when connected to the Internet. Go to the Control Panel> Network and Internet connections> Network Connections> right click the mouse on the link available (eg local area network "connected", "firewalled")> click on "Situation". Make sure the state tab, you will see the speed (mine is always 100 mbps). The packets sent and kits must not have a very big difference. If it is too sends packets (as in ten times) than they receive (then to try to make a number 7!).

12. Always make sure that you have the latest updates for your computer.

13. Always make sure that all devices (drivers, etc.) is to function properly. Go to the control panel> performance and maintenance> system> hardware> click DEVICE MANAGER. We see all devices and adapters available on your computer. Make sure that you do not see a yellow question mark (?), Or it means there is a mistake in this device or adapter. If so, you should update or install the right drivers. Updated firmware may also be necessary.

14. Navigating the Internet? Well, I have a google toolbar installed on my computer and is the default search engine. In the pop up blocker is really great!

15. A memory of at least 512 RAM may be a good idea is installed on your computer

There you go, 15 steps! Good luck!
