PC RUNNING SLOW
How to fix PC running slow
↣ Is it free from dust and dirt dust and dirt builds up inside a computer and this can affect your cooling fans reducing the amount of airflow. Reduced airflow can cause your processor to overheat resulting in slow operation or even unexpected shutdowns.
↣ Many of today’s processors have the ability to throttle back slow down if the core temperature reaches a certain threshold.
↣ Cleaning the inside of your system is relatively easy – you just need to take some sensible precautions.
↣ Please clean temp files from pc:
↣ Temp files can build up over time and eat into your precious disk space.
↣ When you install programmes the installer uses temporary files as part of the set up process.
↣ Some programmes also use temp files when in use.
↣ These temp files should be removed when the installer or programme is finished but this does not always happen.
↣ And of course your browser will collect temp files as well.
↣ A build up of temp files could leave Windows struggling to find room for its swap file .
↣ There are two easy ways to clean out temp files.
↣ First one is Manually and another is By using a proprietary cleaning programme.
↣ Manually for xp and vista
↣ Firstly exit all programmes including browsers and AVs
↣ Click on Start Menu >> Run & type %Temp% & Click Ok
↣ If you want to delete everything press Ctrl+A & then press the delete key
↣ If you want to keep any files then hold down the Ctrl key and left click the file or folder.
↣ Then press the delete key.
↣ Click OK to confirm deletion.
↣ Once done remember to go to your Recycle Bin and empty the bin.
↣ By using a proprietary programmer.
↣ Click On Start >> All Programs >> Accessories >> System Tools >> Disk Cleanup.
↣ Do you still have some old programmes installed
↣ When did you last use them Remember that ‘trial’ software you installed
↣ Has the trial period expired Could you perhaps uninstall it assuming you have the original installation disks
↣ Uninstalling such programmes will help free vital disk space.
↣ Oh always re-boot after uninstalling – it helps to clear away the final remnants of an uninstalled programme.
↣ Reduce the number of programmes loading at start up:
↣ Click Mode >> Advanced to ensure you have access to the Tools section
↣ then select System Startup in the left pane.
↣ A list of programmes that start when you boot up will be displayed in the right pane.

↣ Do you have enough RAM.
↣ Lack of memory can be a real issue.
↣ Especially with today’s high performance machines and Operating Systems
↣ Vista works well with 2GB and XP with 1GB.
↣ You can use more of course but as a minimum these figures are accurate.
