If your computer is running slow, there are a few easy things that you can do to speed it up. Probably one of the first things you can do is make sure that there is no malware or viruses, causing things to slow down. Run a virus scan and correct any issues, then run a malware scan and do the same. You can find free trial versions online. Next make sure that you have enough disk space. If things are tight, you may want to delete any unnecessary things that may be clogging up your system.
Depending on your computer and operating system, you can run a disk scan and a disk defragment program, to make sure that your hard disk is storing information efficiently. Use Google to find the best defragment program for your system.
Another thing that can make your computer run slow is never updating the operating system, and the programs you are using. There is a reason your computer wants to run updates every few days. Software is not static and things are constantly changing. You need the updated software patches to keep things running smoothly and safely. So, go ahead, and turn on the update feature and make sure your operating system and software is up to date. These few tricks should speed things up. If not, then a hardware upgrade may be in order. You may need to add memory or upgrade your entire system.
