Question about Computers & Internet
There are several options you can do to try to help speed up your computer. What operating system do you have?
- Defragmenting your hard drive will condense your files and make them quicker to access. Run the Windows Disk Defragmenter to get rid of fragmented files. (Allow about 45-50 minutes for the program to run.)
- Get rid of any unnecessary startup programs you currently have set to load when the computer boots up. Type "msconfig" into the Start menu's Run bar and click OK. When the System Configuration Utility opens up, go to the Startup tab and look through the program files that are set to load on startup. Remove the check mark from any programs that you know for a fact are unnecessary, such as Adobe Reader, Google Update or Google Desktop, Yahoo Search Protection, etc. Don't uncheck any operating system files, anti-virus program files, or any files that you want to run on startup.
- If you want to invest less than $100, you can upgrade your RAM. Depending on how much RAM you currently have installed, adding more RAM is cheap, easy, and the quickest way to increase your system's memory.
