The third step is to defrag your hard drive. Defragging will consolidate all the empty spaces on your hard drive, that are created as you add and remove files these empty spaces cause your hard drive to take longer. Think which in turn makes folders files and programs open more slowly there are several free defrag tools available on the internet.

Using Defraggler

My personal favorite is made by the same company that makes CCleaner it’s called Defraggler just like CCleaner DEFRAGGLER offers a free and a paid version.

We can use the free version and it works very well. After installing Defraggler, open it up select the drive that you want to defrag and then click on analyze.

It’s time to defrag you’ll have two options for defragging you have the normal defrag and a quick defrag.  If it is your first time select defrag, this may take hours to complete. On your computer a useful tab within Defraggler. That is check periodically is the help tab it shows the health and the temperature of your PC temperature. You can change to Fahrenheit or Celsius in the options.

The step is to remove any virus’s malware adware and spyware from your computer if you have a virus on your computer. That usually stores itself in the system memory causing everything to slow down. Use your favorite antivirus software to get rid of these memory hogs don’t just rely on Windows Defender.

you have your antivirus software installed you should periodically scan your computer for viruses and malware to get rid of these memory Hobbs Step five is to adjust the visual effects on your computer. windows provide quite a few visual effects including dating menus and animated windows these are ok to be turned on but only if you have enough memory to support.

Upgrading Ram

Next step just might be the most impactful step upgrade your RAM.  Over the years I’ve had to upgrade the ram several times doing so I’ve seen significant increases in performance. Also upgrading your video card can significantly improve video gaming performance and can help make video editing tasks it done faster before upgrading your hardware you may want to use a free system information tool so you don’t have to open up your computer.

Speccy is another fine software products from Piriform I promise you.  They just make really good free software that I like, and they offer a free version and a pro version we can use the free version just like the other software I mentioned earlier. When you open the key it will do an automatic scan of your system.  Once this is done you can see multiple specs for your computer.

I usually go with the double up rule for ram when decided to upgrade.

For example, if your system has 2GB of ram it might be a good idea to upgrade to 4GB or even 8GB.

Upgrading your Ram just might be the best thing you can do to speed up your computer. If for some reason none of these steps work for you then the most drastic solution is to do a clean install of your operating system.

You should really think twice about doing this step because it is irreversible if you do this make sure to back up your files and make a record of any program that you want to make sure you reinstall one positive reinstalling.
