???? to speed the computer

Recommended Posts

what you have posted above might not be the legit way.

 

Computer needs energy to run, it distributes the limited power to the various programs or action, If one source is utilising too much power other side is deliberately affected. As for example if you are using too many application at once your computer gets slow that is obvious.

 

Now the story are different, computer performence is affected more by spywares and hackers activity than the normal softwares, If aren't using too many programs but your computer is still slow that means you have 2 problems.

 

1. Your hardware specification is low

2. You have spyware or someone else is driving your computer.

 

For no 1. If you have till Pentium III and 128 MB RAM you shouldn't be having too much problem to surf internet and using yahoo+some office application. If you want more sophisticated applications to run, you can buy etc RAM , for e.g 512 memory stck, There is a golden rule if you 512 RAM or above your computer must have high performance as a home user in all circumstances.

 

For no 2. You have to have the following.

 

1, Your operating system should be full patched. Patched means you should have installed all the service packs, security updates and driver updates from Microsoft. If you haven't check your computer now here

 

http://update.microsoft.com/windowsupdate/v6/default.aspx?ln=en-us this link will automatically check your computer.

 

2, Install and update spyware software, Good and free one is Lavasoft's ad-aware, here is the link for free download http://www.download.com/Ad-Aware-SE-Personal-Edition/3000-8022_4-10399602.html?tag=pop

 

check updates at http://www.lavasoftusa.com/software/adaware/ Persoanl edition shouls be good enough for home use.

 

3. Use firewall protection, There is a way to use firewall, just installing it in a default setting won't protect you, somebody might be still lurking around and you wouldn't want to know, that's the another key fact of having computer slow. All you have got to do is deny everything from your firewall,

 

what you allow ?

1. internet explorer

2, yahoo

3,msn

 

That's all deny everything else or block, sometime you might be finding an option by firewall, "do you want to allow this application ? " click no ....no....no...no...noo deny everything.

 

Here is a link for free firewall , choose personal kerio firewall and download http://www.lavasoftusa.com/software/adaware/

 

Remember you are only secure as much your software update is otherwise your lost.

 

These are the key fact that makes your computer slow practically, If you want more detailed information, ask it.

- Always note the minimum hardware requirements to run OS and other programs.

For eg.

XP Home : http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/home/upgrading/sysreqs.mspx

XP PRO :- http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/pro/evaluation/sysreqs.mspx

 

- Upgrade your PC if it is necessary.

 

- Update your windows like servicepack, security patches etc..

http://update.microsoft.com

 

- Update drivers

 

- Use anti-virus software, update regularly.

 

- Use Anti-spyware software.

Free softwares are Adware, Spybot, CWshredder, Spyware blaster, Spyware Guard, Microsoft Antispyware etc. I prefer to use Spybot and Microsoft Antispyware.

All the links are here http://chautari.wnso.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=5973&st=0

 

- Remove most of the programs from startup.

This can be done by using msconfig, go to start, run, type msconfig, click on Ok, select startup tab then untick the programs those you don't want them to run on statup.

If you want to use registry then go to start, run, type regedit.exe or regedt32.exe

go to HKEY_LOCAL_Machine\software\microsoft\windows\Current Version\Run and delete from the right hand pane.

 

- Use Disk Defragmenter

 

- Use ScanDisk regularly

Go to command prompt, type chkdsk, press enter .

use chkdsk /f and restart your PC

use chkdsk /r also sometimes.

 

- Delete temporary files using Disk Cleanup

Windows XP has built in cleanup tool as well.

This is best one http://tucows.easynet.net/files3/CleanUp40.exe

 

- Better to have more RAM for PC.

Use FreeupRAMpro to free and defrag RAM. http://downloads.pcworld.com/pub/new/utilities/system_resources_tune_up_/framxpro.zip

 

- Clean your registry

Download this tool called regscrubXP and run it.

http://files4.majorgeeks.com/files/154fa0133bf213ebda06227166605423/registry/regscrubxpsetup_3.2.exe

click on RegscrubXP find problem, once it finished finding the problems

click on select all problems

click on Fix selected problems

 

- Always shut down your computer properly
