Fix a Slow Running Computer - 2 Methods


Visitors: 201

To fix a slow computer there are a couple of things you can do. Some of this works better than others, but it depends on the type of computer you have and what the root cause of your issue is in the first place. Lets go over 3 things you can do to fix your slow running computer.

1. The first and perhaps more obvious thing you can do to fix your sluggish computer is to actually upgrade your memory. You can run down to Staples to do this and its pretty affordable. Obviously if you already have a decent computer with a lot of memory then this is not the problem at all. There could have been something like a static electricity buildup that messed up your memory also but its really hard to say without seeing the actual computer. Odds are you have some sort of virus or something if your computer is high end and going slow.

2. Another way to fix a slow running computer is with the help of software. I'm talking anti virus software or registry cleaning software. If you have ever downloaded any music on your computer or even downloaded a program like warez or lime share then there's a decent chance you got some sort of virus. I never ever run those applications on my computer because they always mess things up. My theory is some of the song publishers embed these virus and trojans into the songs to punish people from taking the music for free, but that's just a theory.

Visiting any sort of site where you can get cracked software will also do this to your computer. Odds are you have some sort of registry problems that can be fixed with the proper software. You can check out my bio box below for more help, good luck on your quest to fix a slow running computer!
