We all want our computers to run quick. They do run quickly. But sometimes, it may seem that something is holding the machine back. The process at the backend is taking too long to complete. This is a typical “slow computer syndrome”. But the good news is that, you can speed it up.
Our computer repairs services in Peakhurst can help you immensely here. We offer same day service. We will look into the matter and see what the problem is, and then rectify it. However in the meantime, we suggest you do the following.
Tip #1 – Use the Defrag Tool
Clean up your computer by using it’s defrag tool.
The hard drive is quite empty when you buy the computer. But it begins to fill up as you add files and applications. With more and more data going in, the computer will take longer to access it. By deleting some of these files and programs you don’t need, you’ll be creating small empty spaces. The computer can reuse these spaces. After a while, your computer will be breaking up the files into small pieces and storing them in several places in the hard drive. It can keep track of them all and bring them together when you need them. However it’s going to take a while to do this, and as a result, the process is going to slow down the computer. Defragging helps here.
Tip #2 – Free Up Disk Space
You can make it run smoothly by freeing up disk space. Use the disk cleanup tool in Windows for this. It identifies files that can be deleted safely without any problems. You can then choose whether you want some of these identified files to be deleted or not.
Tip #3 – Find and Repair Disk Errors
Here at our IT consulting in Peakhurst firm, we highly recommend that you find and repair disk errors as well. Run your Error Checking utility to check for the integrity of your files.
There will be some bad sectors in your computer when you are using it, and they are going to slow down the performance of your hard disk. Sometimes data writing (like file saving) can become difficult, and even impossible as well. The utility is going to scan the file systems to locate errors to find out whether some folders or files are misplaced.
Tip #4 – Get Rid Of Spyware
You may not know it, but if you are online a lot, then your computer might have quite a bit of spyware and adware. That’s because, it gets installed silently in the background without alert even as you are working. Sometimes this can be dangerous. This can steal your data and cause identity theft. But usually, this is going to slow down your machine.
