If your computer is running slow then you can disable the startup items...

click on start and then click on RUN, in the run box type MSCONFIG and then click on OK.

It opens the system configuration utility , if you look on the top of it you will get a tab called Startup , click on that and then on the bottom you will get an option called Disable All click on that and then click on Apply and then restart the computer

A slow computer could becaused by a number of things - 1. InsufficientRAM memory - if your computer has less than 512Mb of RAM then increase it to atleast 1Gb of RAM. 2. Registryproblems - clean and repair the registry, it will contain unused registry keys.Use programs such as Registry Mechanic, Microsoft RegClean etc. 3. Uninstall/removeunused programs, this will also free up hard disk space. 4. Notenough hard disk space - swap file space may need to be increased if Windowshasn't been configured to manage it. 5. Installlatest Windows updates. 6. Updatevirus definition files and scan computer for viruses, Trojans, malware etc. 7. Clearthe Internet cache for faster browsing. 8.

You can speed up your computer and improve your download and upload speed by:

-- cleaning system junk
-- optimizing computer services
-- optimizing internet
-- repairing registry
-- defraging registry
-- clearing browsers junk

do these things with some secure tool such as Intel Software Partner Reginout.

Can i make my pc faster.


Hi,

Normally there might be several programs which are running in the back ground.Limiting the programs and services that start up
This area is where the big savings in time can be made. The average PC user probably has far too much stuff loading at start up. Also, Windows starts up a lot of services by default that many systems do not need. The measures to take are covered in great detail on pages elsewhere on this site. How to use the Windows System Configuration Utility (Msconfig) and the Services Console to control both programs and services is discussed. There is also some excellent freeware to help manage your startup and one program, WinPatrol, is evaluated here.

Thank You
