Most people who own a computer totally neglect it. I mean, from the time they bought it, until now, they have really done nothing to it other than install and uninstall software. They basically use it for 3 things: Internet, Email, and some minor word processing stuff. But that is it. And since they only use it for this, they really do not get in to how to optimize performance. But over time, your computer will start to really slow down. You will end up clicking on a program, and waiting. You should never really have to wait. If you are waiting, then you need to do something. I will tell you the single best thing you can do to optimize computer performance.
You computer runs from a set of files called the registry files. They are somewhat difficult to get to, and if you start changing them, you can really mess some stuff up. But there are other ways these files get messed up. Sometimes, when you uninstall software, it will remove a shared registry file another program also needs. Or, if you install a program, it may change a registry file another program needs. This causes your computer to be slow.
See, registry files tell the computer what to do with a software program. If this file is messed up or corrupted, the computer does not know what to do. Sort of like if you are at a 4 way stop with 4 other cars. Everyone just looks at each other. This is similar. It is errors like this that can easily be fixed.
Find a good registry software and get a scan of your computer. This will tell you if you have any errors which need to be fixed. I promise you will have errors. I run mine every week and I have errors. Once the software finds the errors, let it fix them for you. That’s it. Probably takes about 10 minutes. This will return your computer back to top speed, and prevent the slowness. Running a registry scan of your computer is the single best thing you can do to optimize computer performance.
