How To Make Your Computer Faster

The easiest way to make your computer run faster is to properly maintain it. Here are some maintenance tips aimed at improving your computer's performance.


  • Step 1: Install and run anti-virus and anti-spyware programs. Computer viruses and spyware both degrade a computer's performance.
  • FACT: The computer is faster than the human brain at doing logical things and computations.
  • TIP: Don't save encrypted web pages that require a password and user name. They require extra files that slow down your computer.
  • Step 2: Optimize your web browser by reducing the size of your web page history. Storing more than a week's worth of old pages slows the computer's performance.
  • Step 3: Eliminate temporary files. Your computer can pick up and store these files when you view web pages or work on files in programs.
  • Step 4: If you have a Windows PC, defragment your hard drive regularly. Fragmentation occurs when file updates are stored away from other segments of the file.
  • Step 5: Check for and repair disk errors on your computer. Errors are created on the computer's hard disk whenever a program crashes or you experience a power outage.
