Whatever the configuration of your PC might be, if you don’t take care of it, it is bound to slow down eventually. And, a slow computer not only tends slow down your work, but may also cause unnecessary frustration and headaches.

Discussed below are some of the common causes of computer slowdowns and computer errors. We are also going to discuss the methods that will help you prevent these problems and maintain a high-speed Windows PC for a long time to come.

Registry Errors

The registry is one of the most used, and also most neglected components of a Windows computer. The registry is essential for the proper functioning of your Windows computer because it comprises all configuration information of the hardware and software on your computer. Over time, the registry gets filled up with loads of unwanted information pertaining to incorrectly installed/uninstalled programs, buggy games, software, and device drivers, virus and spyware infections, and many more such problems. All this unwanted data causes registry bloating that can even damage and corrupt registry files. A damaged registry slows down your PC and also starts generating computer errors. To prevent these problems, it is essential for you to maintain a healthy and error-free registry. You can do this by regularly scanning your registry for errors and unwanted information and removing it from the registry. To do this, you may use a reliable and efficient registry cleaner tool.

Malware Infections

Malware programs, such as virus, Trojans, worms, spyware, and adware are also a major cause of concern for computer users today. These programs usually infiltrate your system through infected emails and dubious games and freeware software programs. They infect your applications, download and install more infected programs on your computer, and generate several computer errors. They run several unwanted processes on the system that not only eat up your system resources and slow it down, but also collect your confidential information and send it to external sources for malicious use. To prevent these programs from taking over your system, you must use reliable antivirus and antispyware programs to regularly scan your system and eliminate any malicious information from it. Even cleaning the registry with the help of a registry cleaner tool will help you remove any malicious registry entries added by these malicious programs.

Hard Disk Problems

As you install and uninstall programs on your computer, and add and remove files from it, the hard disk tends to get filled up with unwanted data. Additionally, the number of fragmented files on the system increases. Over time, the problem increases and may even cause physical damage to the hard disk. A filled up and fragmented hard disk slows down your system and also starts generating several computer problems. To prevent these problems, two very useful tools are shipped with your Windows computer.  They are the Disk Cleanup and Disk Defragmenter tools. You must regularly use these tools to cleanup your hard disk and eliminate fragmented files from it.

Less System Memory

These days it does not take long for a system to get outdated. With new software being released every minute, we may soon need to upgrade our system hardware. One of the most important components that helps you speed up your computer is upgrading the memory or the RAM of your PC.
