Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
Most of the time while we use our pc/laptops they seem to be quite slow and it occurs to our mind that why I invested so much money for the latest configuration when I was about to get such slow speed. Mostly this occurs with the people having very less time and very less knowledge about computers. That leads them to handover their personal computer in the hands of an unknown character. which could very well break the term personal computer. Hence, for those I'm just providing a small not very big thing so that they can do this on their own. Most of the time around 90% viruses who eat up your memory work through explorer and killing explorer once kills the virus also just for that session. I'd reiterate for that session only once you've restarted your pc you will have to redo the process. It's indeed very simple and easy for even a kid who knows how to read can do it. If these slowdowns are recent and you don't wish to mess up with deeper things then a simple few keystrokes on start-up could help you out.
On start-up once your background comes (not all your desktop icons) simply hit Ctrl + Alt + Del
Click on processes and then right click on explorer.
Now Click end process tree.
Wait for few seconds (this might depend on the age and capacity of your computer).
Now click on the first tab of the only open window i.e. task-manager and at the bottom click the button new task.
In the new task button type explorer and click the "OK" button.
Now check the speed of you PC/laptop.
You will have to do it on every start-up so as I said its only for those who don't want to mess with things or are unsure about what they are doing.
In case you really want to automate this thing then kindly show your support by voting and I will provide the automation right here.
