Why do computers tend to get slower as time goes by? A computer cleaner can help your pc recover some of the speed. In this article, we are going to look at a few alternatives.
The accumulation of unused files and programs is the biggest culprit in slowing down computers, but other factors can affect speed. To end this frustration, I have listed below simple ways to improve your computer’s performance that will make it seem like it just left the store:
Remove unnecessary files and programs
Most of the time, when a computer is slow, the hard drive is full of useless programs, games, and files. Keep in mind that the backlog is more serious than having “heavy” software installed.
Therefore, keep a regular scan on all your installed programs, and for those which you have not used for a long time. Ideally, you should keep one computer for professional use, with tools only for your store, so practice detachment!
Older, unused files may not seem like a problem, but since they are always in separate and even hidden places on your computer, it is difficult to see how large they can get.
To identify and locate these files look for Disk Cleanup in the taskbar. To remove them, select the Clean System Files option > click Files to delete > check the file types to remove (suggestion: temporary files, Recycle Bin, and Thumbnails) > click OK.
Run fewer programs at the startup
Check to see if there are many programs configured to run automatically when you start the system, programs such as antivirus as well as music players are usually automatically configured to start when you start the system and don’t always ask for permission to do so.
With Windows, the check is done through the Task Manager. Use the keyboard shortcut “Ctrl + Shift + Esc” > on the Startup tab > uncheck the programs you don’t want to run at system startup > and then click Disable.
Windows activates the power saving mode as soon as a notebook’s battery reaches its minimum autonomy limit, to save load and stay running longer. This is a setting that can be manually changed by the user, in case he/she wants the maximum brightness of the screen even with low battery life, for example. This harms the operation of the computer in the long run, because unwanted use of the notebook battery may require more recharging.
In addition, the user may leave the charger plugged in all the time. The more often, the more chances of the battery overheating, damaging the entire computer. Shortening the useful time and generating performance failures. So use the Windows power recommendations that include keeping the battery above 20%.
These are some options that you can use in the place of a computer cleaner, although they may not be as effective. If you have tried all the above methods, and your PC is still running there are no problems with trying a computer cleaner.
