I get lots of people asking me how to speed up their computer, more often than not, they don’t need to buy a new computer, there are things they can do to speed it up.

  • Spring clean
    • Use CCleaner to remove temporary and unused files (advanced users only)
    • Use autoruns to turn off any programs that you don’t want to start up (advanced users only)
    • Use PC decrapifier which allows you to easily remove software you know you don’t need or want
    • Run Disk Cleanup
    • Run Disk Defragmentation
    • Removing and storing all your fonts using Font Frenzy will speed up your computer
  • Get protected
  • More memory
  • Also consider
    • Free up space for your system files and program files by moving everything else to an external hard disk
    • Try following Microsoft’s 6 ways to speed up your PC
