There are five things that are easy to do that can improve your computers performance. In summary they include: removing malware, adware, and spyware; finding and fixing errors on the computers hard drive, freeing up space on the hard drive and adding additional virtual RAM.
Spyware, adware, viruses and all sorts of malware can cause significant degradations of your computers performance. You can find good programs to scan for and remove these threats on Microsofts website as well as from third parties.
Use registry fix programs. The computer registry can be described as the database that contains all of the settings and options for 32 bit versions of Microsoft Windows (including Windows 95, 98, ME, NT, XP, and 2000.) It also contains all of the settings for the hardware, software, users, and preferences of the P.C. Whenever a user makes changes in the Control Panel settings, file associations, system policies, or installed software, the changes are reflected in the computers registry. Many times a registry error occurs and this causes files and data to be inaccessible. If there are numerous minor errors (which is usually the case) a registry fix program will get the data back in accessible sequence and a slow computer will be speeded up with this fix.
Removing as much clutter and junk from your PCs hard drive and freeing up space will go a long way to improving your computers performance. There are several utilities that will help you do this but the main one people use is the MSCONFIG tool. Once you have created more space on your hard drive the computer has more room to use it as virtual memory.
