How To Improve Computer Speed – Simple Solutions

By Imani . Sardina

Your pc slows down for many reasons – deteriorated parts, hard disk failure and bugs. But that’s the type of slow that’s typical. What we are talking here about is the kind of bogging down that happens very fast, the kind that pushes you to find answers on the question, how to improve computer speed. You can start with the following recommendations.

Diagnose your pc to know the problem. Slowing down may result from changes in the software or congestion in the registry. If you can’t pin point where exactly the problem is coming from, diagnose your pc.

Check your pc for malware, adware and spyware. These little programs can automatically slow down any computer. Use a malware, spyware or adware detection software program and see if these nasty little programs are the culprits. If you detect any bug in your pc, disable it immediately and check your pc further for other problems.

Another major culprit of sudden slow down in the pc’s speed is the network connection. If your computer is connected to a network (for example, office network) and the network had been disconnected, it is still very likely that your pc will look for this connection while it boots up. Make sure that its previous connections are removed. If, however, you are connected online, disconnect your connection for a while and see if this will speed up your pc’s performance. While you’re at it, scan your pc for root kit as well. Root kit is a tool that enables other computers to remotely access your pc. To scan, use antivirus detection programs; these work relatively well for detecting root kits. If one is detected, disconnect your computer immediately and reconnect only when you’re 100% sure that your connections are clean.

If you don’t get any result in doing these things, try checking your registry or your hard disk, the problem could be lurking there. Utility tools that are designed to clean up the hard disk and registry can effectively clear the problems in these areas. There are also different checkers and tests available online.

In general, two types of test of available – the short version and the long version. First, scan your hard disk with the short test. This will only take you around 2 minutes to finish. If the short test fails to identify any problem, you may consider leaving it there or run the second test. Clearing the short test is not a sure-fire way of determining failures in the hard disk, though. To ensure that there really are no problem with your registry or hard disk, run the second test.

Detected errors clearly show that your pc needs immediate replacement. Consider backing up your files and start searching for a new hard disk or, if you have the budget, buy a new pc.

If your need to buy a new pc or hard disk, don’t be bothered. Look at it as a good opportunity for you to start new with a fresh computer. Also, consider this the ultimate solution to the problem how to improve computer speed.
