How to Speed Up Your Computer Instead of Buying a New One

How to speed up your computer

If you’ve had your computer for a while, you might have noticed it’s not as fast as it used to be. You might be wondering how to speed up your computer and if it is even possible. The good news is that you don’t have to buy a new computer to speed it up. Just do some of the following and you’ll notice an improvement right away without spending a dime!

Get rid of your crappy programs

This is our best tip for how to speed up your computer. Programs like Adobe Reader, iTunes and Norton Anti-Virus are known for using up a lot of memory and slowing down your computer’s performance. Ditch these for superior alternatives.  Your computer will now run faster, as well as the new programs you install!

Reinstall your operating system

If you’ve never refreshed your computer by reinstalling its operating system, you’re missing out on way better performance. It’s easy to do: just backup all of your critical system data, make sure you have your product key in hand and follow this handy guide from PC world.

Perform regular maintenance

Although this won’t drastically change the performance of your computer, it will certainly help. Even performing the most basic maintenance tasks like running your anti-virus software or installing regular updates on your operating system helps. The hardware matters as well so make sure your fan is free of dust.

 Remove programs you don’t use

Many computers come loaded with programs you’ll never use. They take up space on your hard drive and sometimes run without you even knowing. So go through the control panel to your add/remove software and remove the programs you clearly don’t need. If you aren’t sure whether a program is important or not, then just do a quick Google search to see what it does.
