Tips To Speed Up Windows – We Make House Calls To Help

Windows (in particular, Windows 7) is a well conceived operating system and the standard for the computer and laptop industry.  Microsoft does a fine job in ironing out the bugs that are in earlier Windows versions. Yet, how fast your computer runs depends on many factors, and making some tweaks here and there can often make a big difference. Various things, from unnecessary features to a virus could be interfering with your computer’s performance. Any computer running an up-to-date Windows version can be sped up by applying the following steps.

A computer can easily be slowed down by things that are destructive like destructive programs like a variety of malware (spyware, viruses, etc). Most importantly, issues like that could cause quite a lot of harm to your computer so it is really good to find out about them and get rid of them as soon as you can. It is really easy to acquire these sorts of problems, particularly if you frequently download files over the web.

It’s important to find a good anti-virus program and scan your computer with it regularly. It’s important that you are only using trustworthy and reliable programs for getting rid of spyware because there are a lot of spyware programs that claim to be anti-spyware programs. It’s possible to avoid the vast majority of these problems by being extra careful about downloading anything from a source that you aren’t familiar with. Among the many features that you might consider shutting off for faster performance is Active Desktop. When Active Desktop is working, it shows you selected web pages before you even launch your web browser. It’s up to you to decide whether features such as this are worth having, or if making Windows faster is more of a priority. Most people don’t urgently need to see a web page from their desktop, though there are exceptions. There are other ways to bring up sites rapidly -make one your home page, bookmark any others. Unless you’re attached to the colors on your desktop, you could save RAM by making the background color a solid one. You can reset the colors by choosing “personalize” on your desktop options. Each feature that you disable frees up some memory, though if you only make a single change, the difference might not be noticeable.

Your computer probably has services turned on that you don’t regularly use, and this can be slowing down your system. An example of this are printer features, which are only necessary when you’re actually printing something. If you use your printer daily, then you obviously shouldn’t turn off features related to printing, but otherwise you should disable them to speed up your computer.

Let’s say you are currently running Windows 7 – it is one of the fastest and most advanced operating systems ever made.  Unfortunately, most users aren’t able to get the best performance from it because they fail to optimize their settings for better speed. If you make sure that your attention is focused on keeping only those features and programs that are the most essential and cutting out what you’re not going to be using and make sure that you scan your registry regularly and keep it clean, you will see that Windows 7 will be a lot faster for you.
