How to have a fast computer

22/03/2011 11:12

One of the most annoying things in life is a slow computer.

Every few years, we buy an expensive new PC and love how fast it starts up, runs programs, and downloads websites. But after some time, it starts to slow down and finally we are pulling our hair out waiting for it to do easy things.

Why is this? The answer is actually quite simple and you don't need to be an IT professional to understand the reasons way and solutions.

The good news is that your computer hardware is not the problem. The problem lies with changes that happened to the PC's software.

The problem starts to begin when you download new programs, games, or files. Your computer gets a lot of new instructions that are needed to operate that item. But when the item is deleted, these instructions usually stay on your PC.  Every time you work with your computer, it tries to follow these instructions but, because the program can't be found, your computer has a problem. Your PC is doing a lot more work than it should be and the result is a much slower computer.

But the help exists. There are programs you can find on the internet which will help you to sort this problem out.
