Stopping a computer from running slowly requires some maintenance and upkeep to retain the computer in an optimum state. This post details some of these best practices which most people should be able to complete; along with a Reimage review to show the role that registry repair software can have in optimizing registry settings.
The following tasks should ideally be performed on a regular basis. Some can be automated to run using a Task Scheduler which is a great way of setting preventative maintenance on auto-pilot:
- Don’t let the disk drives exceed 90% of their capacity. Over this level, the Windows operating system struggles to perform regular tasks.
- Close applications and services that are not in use. Even background tasks consume CPU and memory.
- Clear the RAM of cached application data by making a full system reboot. Through design or by fault, some applications do not release residual data from RAM after they are closed and only a full reboot can clear this.
- Use Windows Update to obtain performance patches. The fixes/improvements are often bundled in with security and critical updates.
- Run a full system scan by your anti-virus software. Any trojan viruses present on a PC can hog resource usage and bandwidth.
These tasks establish a healthy baseline for most computers making them resilient to faults and capable of better performance. Any additional gains can be made using registry repair software like Reimage.
Reimage takes less than 25 minutes to scan the registry for faults and badly set keys using an online database of optimum settings to compare against.
The Reimage review process also checks the rest of the file system for potential improvements and uses a download repository of 23 million files (Windows OS, drivers, applications) to install the latest healthy file versions.
The key to resolving a slow computer is to (a) establish a baseline healthy system and (b) proceed to optimized settings through the use of software. If these fail then consideration must be given to the hardware itself. Some computer vendors provide their own applications for assessing the health status of their hardware which can provide a front-line check on your computer.
