Disk defragment is first step. This will locate files closer to each other on the hard drive. Should be located in system tools. Other than that I would save all important files externally and format the drive and start fresh. Beyond that, you would probably need to upgrade.

Besides keeping your cache clean,what else makes the computer run faster? IE: prosessor, ram, ??


Well a number of things will ensure your system runs fast however like most things your PC will need a MOT every 2 years i.e. a full reformat

However you can do the following to ensure your PC does not slow down

1) Dont visit any sites you are suspicious off as they will install malware and viruses will slow your PC right down
2) Dont install unecessary programs - only install prgrams you will use time and time again as others will install themselves in startup thus slowing down your startup times
3) You can install more RAM this will speed up the applications- ensure you get the right RAM for your motherboard and is installed by a professional
4) install a good free firewall and antivirus software like AVG or commodo to ensure you dont accumulate bad data

Hope this helps

Computer running slow


Slow with programs or slow online?
Try holding ctrl+alt+del and click on the performance tab to see how much available memory you have.
You possibly could be infected. Try AVG free virus software. It finds them when others dont.
