Slow and steady was great for the tortoise, but not so good if we’re talking computers. In the world of computers, reliable and speedy wins the race. One of the most common complaints in computer repair shops is, “My computer is running slow,” so you are definitely not alone. If you begin to notice slower start-up or shut-down, experience freezes, slower response times or delay in message delivery, there are some things you can do to try to alleviate the problem.
There are a number of possible causes and solutions for slow running computers. As for causes, your computer could have heavy file fragmentation, invalid or corrupt entries, incorrect system settings or misconfigured internet settings that could lead to slower connection…just to name a few.
To keep your computer running in optimal condition, you always want to check for and remove viruses and malware; check disk space and make room if needed; check for corrupted files; defragment on a regular basis; and check your memory usage. You also want to make sure you are running the most current versions of programs, so check for updates. Disable unnecessary programs that automatically run. Then turn off your computer and restart with only the items you need.
