We all buy a new system hoping it will last forever, however, it usually isn't long after we purchase it that it starts to slow down. By taking the time to do a speed test on your suddenly sluggish machine, you can often confirm that there is indeed a problem. Below we talk about a few of the things that could slow down your hardware.
Running too many applications on your computer at one time is often a reason why your machine will work slower. Computers have a limit on the available resources and memory on hand to run complicated software programs. Many of the software applications offered today require significant resources that can slow down the operation of your system. In order to solve this problem you need to compare the resources your computer has on hand to the requirements for each software program. Testing the speed of the operation of a PC will help determine this, which will allow you to determine exactly which software programs you can run at the same time.
Users who uninstall software also need to be careful, as removing software incorrectly could slow down the operation of a computer. If this happens, the software package you did not uninstall correctly will still have remnant particles taking space in your Windows registry. If this is always the case, the Windows registry will eventually become too big, which will slow down the operation of a computer.
A third reason a PC could be working slower is because you need to take care of doing regular defragmenting of your hard drive. Windows-based systems generally include a tool to help defragment the hard drive which you need to use regularly. Defragmenting your hard drive allows your computer to access files on your system faster, which should help it work faster.
It could also be the existence of registry errors on your system slowing down the machine. If the Windows registry becomes corrupted, this will slow down a computer.
Spyware, malware and viruses can cause errors in a computer system as they change the Windows registry. Run a regular computer speed test to make sure everything is running as they should, and keep your computer working as fast as it should............
