The Easiest Way To Keep Your PC Run Smooth And Fast
Submit Articles Back to Articles
Most people using computers for work, research, games or socialization almost
always want to do their tasks as fast as possible. Of course, they can only do
this if their PCs function well. And to enable a computer to operate smoothly as
well as to optimize its best performance, there are several important aspects to
consider - speed, security, anti-virus software, privacy protection, registry,
files cleanup and Windows operating system.
Some basic steps can be taken to make your PC run smooth and error-free. A
quick method is to close any unused programs on your Windows by pressing
Ctrl-Alt-Del. This is part of the process known as optimizing your Windows
registry. Getting rid of unnecessary programs will free up memory and improve
your computer's speed. These programs normally appear as icons in the lower
right hand corner of your computer screen beside the clock. To access options on
those programs, you can click, double click or right click on each of them.
Another way to do it is to go to start menu, double click on programs and then
double click on startup. Find out which programs you won't need, click on them
and press delete.
The next step is more complex and will require you to edit and backup your
registry just to be safe. To do this, click start, run and type "regedit" in the
box. From there, double click on the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE folder, then for
Software, then Microsoft, then Windows, then Current Version and then Run. These
programs run at startup and before deleting, be sure you no longer need them.
In optimizing your Windows Vista, the initial step you should take is to
update your drivers as often as possible. New drivers guarantee improved
performance and eventually enable more features. If you've had experience
installing Windows operating systems including this latest one, you may have
noticed that Vista rarely asks questions about your computer and what you want
to do with it. Vista, just like Windows XP, assumes it knows your computing
habits and the features you may or may not require. It will also install some
unnecessary overhead which you can remove. Similar to Windows XP, Vista also has
the "uninstall a program" button which you can click to get rid or change a
program window. By doing this, you will surely speed up Windows and improve your
PC's game and application performance.
