How to make your computer run faster for free!

Imagine that you have bought a computer that runs adequately fast. However, after a few weeks or couple of months you notice that your computer is not running as fast as it was when you first bought it.
One solution that someone may think is to buy new hardware (new processor, more RAM, bigger hard drive etc)

However before doing that try the following:
First of all go to Start, All Programs, Startup. If this contains items that you do not need you can delete them. These are just shortcuts and not the actual applications. Think if you need these applications to begin everytime you start up your computer. If not then remove them from that menu list.

Second thing you can try is a little bit more advanced:
Go to Start, Run and type msconfig and press enter.
In the dialog that opens go to Startup and see the long list of applications that startup everytime you boot your computer. You should only leave your antivirus program, and entries under the c:\windows\system32
If you are not sure about an entry leave it there or check it over the internet.

Then click on services and click Hide microsoft services. Check again which services should not be enabled and disable them. Use google again if you are not sure about the listed services.

Lastly, right click on MyComputer, select Properties. Go to Advanced tab and under performance click Settings.
Select Adjust for best performance

That's it. You should have a computer/laptop running faster.

Computer can not connect to wireless modem ("Valet),has been running fine for 4-5 months. Ran network diagnostice "Windows has detected connection problem....."

If you are facing the connection problem, you need to do the following step.
Open Command Prompt, type ipconfig/release, after few seconds type ipconfig/renew. This will assign a new IP. Now you try to connect. If still facing the issue means you need to download and install a new wireless driver that is suitable for your operating system.

Please let me know once you check this.

4. You can also Uninstall apps that you don't use anymore. This can be done by going into the control panel and select Add/Remove Prorams. Scroll through and delete apps you no longer use. 5. Restart the machine.

I am sure that this would resolve the issue. In case it does not try this

click on start -> then choose run -> in the run window type prefetch and hit enter. A new window would come up. Select the tab Startup, and click the button Disable all. Click apply and then OK and restart your coputer.

This should help. in case not click start -> Accessiories -> system tools -> Disk Defagment

In case that also does not works, scan your computer for some viruses.
You may also look at the option of increasing the RAM / Memory on your computer
This should help
