My computer had been under performing for a while and I was thinking of getting a new one. I looking through the usual computer sites like Dell and PC World and they had some really good offers on. What did strike me though was that the spec on new computers was not so diffrent from that of my current machine and an upgrade would be expensive. Once I knew this I set upon a diffrent course and deciced to fix up the computer I have.

 

I began my research on how to make the computer run faster online. I searched for "fix my slow computer" on MSN and it brougt up a lot of results, most of these results where software programes which might be useful but first I wanted to find an unbiased guide to what could be done. I found what I wanted on page to of the search results.

 

The guide began with a few simple steps such as removing unused items from the desktop and getting rid of programs such as I tunes which run as soon as you load the computer up. This did cause the computer to load much quicker but did not make much diffrence to the overall speed.

 

he guide began with a few simple steps such as removing unused items from the desktop and getting rid of programs such as I tunes which run as soon as you load the computer up. This did make the computer load faster but didn’t really change the overall running speed of it. After that the guide stated I needed to defrag my hard drive. This took a fair while to do but dint involve me doing much bar seeting it running. After I had defraged the hard drive I did notice an improvement in performance but I still felt that I could get more out of the computer so I went on to the next step, The next step was to repair any windows registry errors on the computer. These errors cause your computer to run slowly. Fixing them involved getting a free scan and then once the errors have been identified paying a small amount of money to get them fixed. Fixing the errors made a massive diffrence although I wouldnt say it made my computer as good as new.
