Slow Computer? Learn How to Speed Up Your PC

Does your computer seem to be slower than normal? Has your PC crashed recently? Have you had the misfortune of experiencing the blue screen of death or a similar error?

There are a plethora of things that can cause your computer to crash or perform at an unreasonably slow level. You might have too many programs loading at startup.

The general rule is this: If you don't need it and it isn't vital to your computer, delete it. By following this rule, you will enable your computer to boot up faster and perform better.

Another thing that can cause your computer to run slower is a corrupted or bloated registry. If you have a Windows computer, then you have a registry.

The registry, like a meticulous bookkeeper, stores a record of everything you do on your computer. It keeps tabs on what programs you use on your computer, what websites you look at, what you download from the Internet. It stores all of this info on your computer’s hard drive and is notorious for producing corrupted or fragmented files.

Cleaning out your registry every now and then will help Speed up your PC.

Why is my Computer Running Slow?

    Love the info-graphic!

  4. Thanks for the tips. I might try Driver Boost out, but in the meantime I'm going to go clear up a few things in my registry right now. As to whether I can let go of all the old programs I have installed, especially the games... I'll have to get back to you.

  5. I knew that spyware/malware could slow your computer down, but I didn't realize that my registry could also slow it down. I don't think that I had ever cleaned out my registry until i got the BSOD recently and went searching for possible explanations online. I got registry cleaning software (PC HealthBoost actually) and it fixed my problem right away. After reading this I'm thinking I might want to pick up DriverBoost some time in the future as well. Thanks for the info!

  6. Wow that's Great. You are always welcome :)

  7. Yes Meridith, Cleaning up the registry is essential and need to be done atleast once a week.
    Thanks for standby and leaving a comment. You are welcome! :)
