When the operating system Windows 7 was released by Microsoft many people were impressed with its performance and the utilities that it offer users. Unfortunately users felt like the boot time of the operating system was sluggish. Luckily there are a few tips and tricks to speeding up this operating system.
The first thing to do is to look at applications that you do not use. These applications may take up RAM and processor cycles. There is software available that will help you detect which programs on your system are unnecessary.
If you are attempting to swap over to Windows 7 from Windows XP you may need to add more RAM to your computer. This will speed up your system and ensure that your computer meets the minimum requirements of Windows 7.
Another trick to boost the speed of a slow computer is to perform a disk clean up. A disk clean up will allow you to see what temporary files are in your cache. You can then delete then in order to free up some of your computer’s RAM.
Often a virus or spy ware will slow down our systems. One way to avoid this is by running an anti-virus software on a regular basis. This will detect any questionable files and remove them from your system.
One of the reasons that many people like using Windows 7 is its vibrant backgrounds and attractive visual effects. While these look attractive they are also responsible to slowing down your system to a degree. If you are not concerned about the appearance of your computer you can shut off some of these effects in control panel.
These methods are a few simple ways to get your computer running more smoothly. They are easy to do and should not take a lot of time.
