How to Speed Up Your Slow Computer

Is your computer getting slower and slower? Is it taking you hours to complete one task? Do you ever want to throw your computer out of a 10-story window? If so, you may be able to save your old PC by trying out these simple solutions:

  • Update and run your laptop’s virus scanner to remove viruses and spyware. 

  • Click the Start button, type “msconfig,” and press the “Enter” key to launch the System Configuration screen. Navigate to the “Start Up” tab and remove the check in the box next to every item you don’t need running on your laptop.

  • Click the Start button, type “add or remove programs,” and press the “Enter” key to launch the Add or Remove Programs screen.

  • Click the Start button, type “disk cleanup,” and press the “Enter” key to launch the Disk Cleanup utility. 

  • Click the Start button, type “disk defragmenter,” and press the “Enter” key to launch the Windows defragmenter utility.
