Speed up Windows 7

Even when you install a good operating system like Windows 7 you start having performance trouble with it after a while. In order to avoid this or speed up Windows 7, you need to keep regular maintenance of your PC. In this article we’ll deal with a few tips and tricks that everyone should know in order to be able to speed up Windows 7 performance and operations.

The first thing you should know about Windows maintenance is that you have to delete and uninstall any files, executable and programs you no longer use. Even some of Window’s original standard settings are not useful for everyone, so they can be easily deleted. That way, next time you turn on the computer Windows won’t have to load all those settings and process all that information, so everything will move a bit faster. One should also try not to have too many startup items. These software pieces are not always useful to you and you can eliminate them with the help of MSconfig.

Another thing users can do to speed up Windows 7 is to remove the junk software and free trial versions of software you’ll never use that you get with Microsoft programs and so on. And when you install a program or an executable of your choice, don’t let the manufacturers shove tool bars, search bars, home pages and other applications down your throat. Keep only what you know you’ll use for sure.

Whether you want your computer running faster or not, keeping it free of viruses and malware is very important, and explaining why is not necessary. We’ll only mention, for the sake of the article’s subject, that spyware and other invasive programs like this will slow down your computer like nothing else. Remember that a computer virus by definition constantly reproduces itself, thus overloading the computer. Another thing that might slow down your operating system is an overloaded memory. You can either add more memory or you can delete unwanted files.

A very tech thing you can do to speed up Windows 7 is to purchase solid state disks which use innovative technology that allows the user to see any information stored on it in just seconds. So far they are a bit expensive, but for some it may be a life-saver and therefore worth investing in. Others will have to wait for the technology to become cheaper. These are some of the basic things you can do to speed up Windows 7, but there are other options as well.
