If you have owned a laptop or desktop for a while, you might notice that your computer is starting to get some hiccups when you’re using it. It could just be a minor issue that can be easily resolved with the right knowledge and tools, before it starts to get worse as time goes.
Read this article to find out why your computer is running slow and how to fix various user, hardware, and software issues for immediate PC performance and speed improvement.
1. Too many startup programs
Many programs will automatically run when you start your computer. Most of these programs don't need to open right when your computer finishes booting up, hence the longer startup time.
To fix this, simply set the less important programs to be launched manually, when you need them.
2. Gaps in time between reboots
If it has been a few days since you last powered down completely, it might be a good idea to give your computer a little break.
Shutting down or rebooting your computer clears out the memory cache, which will usually result in a faster, more responsive computer.
3. Too many background programs
You might not realize that there are programs that may be running in the background and using up a large amount of processing power.
Review how much processing power each program is using and close the ones that do not need to be running.
