Computers are an essential part of everyday life. It’s hard to find someone who hasn’t used a computer and who doesn’t used one regularly. Because it is such an essential tool used everyday, it’s important to keep it in the best shape. However, because it is used so often, the computer can start to run slow. There are several reasons as to why this can occur.
The first thing to look at when dealing with slow computer speeds is the registry. The registry holds all the system, hardware and software preferences. The registry can get bloated if it isn’t cleaned often. Cleaning it not only frees up space, but also solves some system errors that could give you trouble in the future. To repair a slow computer the registry should be scanned to see if there is corruption in there.
If so, this will definately make for slower computer speeds and maybe even cause the PC to crash. In short, provided the computer is free of viruses and spyware, to repair a slow computer, you need to fix the registry.
The second thing you should look into if you want to speed up your computer is if you have a virus. Surfing the Internet is one of the most harmful things you can do to your computer, because there is so many harmful things on there that want to damage your computer, especially if you start downloading programs. Running a virus scan, at least once a week is a good thing to do, because catching that harmful virus is better than leaving it on their for an extended period of time, doing more and more damage.
