After much research into this situation, I discovered that except you are using a computer running on Pentium M and below, most of the reasons why systems are slow these days are traceable to the users. Yes, I am aware of the processor-intensive applications out there that can take over all the resources of your computer, leaving it with little or nothing for other tasks, but there are two things that a user should do to speed up the processing speed of a computer. Lets look at them below
Start up: most users tend to unknowingly have all the applications on their computers enabled at startup. The implication of this is that whenever you power your computer, these applications will start running, sometimes, in the background. When this happens, system resources are used to service applications whose services are not needed at that time leaving little for the applications that legitimately require it. To disable applications you do not need at startup, do the followings:
>> Click on search
>> Type "Task manager" and hit the enter key
>> Click on start-up
>> Disable all apps you do not want to launch on start-up
Defragment and optimize your drives: after you have disabled applications that you do not need at startup, the next thing is to clear temporary files by defragmenting and optimizing your drives . Some file have been duplicated on your computer, you need to clear them in order to free your computer memory. Computers become slow once the storage is fully consumed. To clear temporary and duplicate files, do the followings:
>> Click on search
>> Type "defrag"and hit the enter key
>> Select drive c and click on analyse
>> At the end of the analysis, click on optimize
If you follow the steps correctly till the end, you will have a faster and more efficient computer to work with. It is that quick and easy to implement.
