How Can I Make My Computer Run Faster, for Free?

 How Can I Make My Computer Run Faster, for Free?

One way to make your computer faster for free: upgrade to better browsers.

Associated Press/AP Online

Q. My computer has gotten slower and slower at doing basic things like booting up and running multiple programs at once. How do I improve its performance without spending any money?

A: You’re wise to try to fix this problem yourself, for free. There are a few things you can do to make your computer feel more like the brilliant multitasking machine you want it to be and less like the wheezer it’s turned into.

Let’s start by setting aside one thing that a lot of people try but we won’t recommend here. It’s called overclocking, and it involves tweaking your PC’s hardware settings to make the central processor or system memory run faster than their manufacturers officially intended. It can get tricky.

Besides, unless you’re running nuclear simulations or are a huge video game player, your standard home PC probably should be fast enough for what you need. The problem isn’t in the hardware. It’s in all the software that’s gotten larded onto it.

So here are some simple things to do to gain more control.

    You can run combofix. It cleans out root problems that run in the back ground and slow up your computer.

    Hi, guys. I got same problem with you. I bought my Dell inspiron last Christmas. It worked sharp at the first few months, but got slow after that. It took about 15 mins to start up. I can even walk away and brew my coffee during waiting! I even thought about reinstall my computer! My friend recommended the software tuneup360 and Norton systemwork. I tried both. Norton did look really powerful and could do lots of thing, but it was too difficult for me and too expensive, while Tuneup360 is my type. I just need to click one big “fix now” button and get my computer fixed. Now my computer takes only 30 sec to start up.

    To keep my laptop fast i use:

    Ccleaner to delete any unneeded temporary files, cookies, etc. as well as disable all the startup programs i dont need running for no reason. Its also got a built in feature to uninstall programs you dont need as well as a registry cleaner that doesnt corrupt your system!

    As far as anti-virus protection i used Microsoft's very own Security Essentials :)

    For more thorough scans for malware i use MBAM (Malwarebytes Anti-Malware)

    if any of you want these, they're all free at http://www.filehippo.com

    This is a GREAT site to get tons of freeware :)
