|* How to deal with your computer slowing down
Upgrading Your System. Let’s say your laptop was designed for Windows 2000, but you have now installed Windows 7. The newer system is much heavier and intricate than the older system, and as your computer is not designed for it, you will probably find that your computer is much slower. Newer systems require newer computers with more processing power. This is one way that the manufacturers of operating systems force us to upgrade our computers. Your computer is not slowing down because of age, it is slowing down because it has a newer version of the operating system on it.
Virus or Malware. If you are not protected, and even sometime if you are, you will still be looking for computer repairs because your computer has become infected. Some malware and other sneaky programs that entered your computer without your knowledge are getting up to activities that you are not aware of. Therefore, your computer is doing more than you think behind your back. This can cause your computer to slow down.
Lots of Files. Sometimes your computer will use your hard-drive to boost the amount of memory the processor is using, if you do not have much space on your computer, this will not allow the free space on the hard-drive to be used, and your computer will slow down. It is a good idea to keep a reasonable amount of space on your hard-drive, around 20%.
More Files. If you have been saving and doing a lot of work on your computer, even if you have deleted old files, the files are still all on your hard-drive in a messy way. This means a lot of going back and forth to read information for your computer. ‘Defragging’ is when you use the system tools to tidy up your hard-drive, so that information is stored uniformly and makes it easy and faster for your computer to locate it. You should check this regularly as your computer will tell you if it is necessary or not.
Messy System. Even though you have un-installed programs correctly and done everything you should when installing software, there will always be some glitches. There will also be files left around on your system registry. The system registry is like the complicated gears of your operating system engine. If it is messy, it will slow your computer down. You need to get specific software to clean this up or you can do it manually if you know a lot about computers. Even a messy desktop with a lot of items on it will slow your computer down!
If all else fails and you are concerned about your registry, viruses and malware, re-installing your system from scratch and reformatting your hard-drive is the simplest way to know your computer is in the shape that you bought it in. Remember there is rarely anything that will go wrong with your hardware, and the worst case scenario is that you have to put a new hard-drive in.
