Computer running slow? More often than not the issue with slow computers are software related. Here are some free tools that you can use to help speed up and maintain your computer.
Glary utilities is very neat free tool. Its extremely easy to use and is feature packed. Glary Utilities has a 1-Click Maintenance feature that scans for registry errors, invalid shortcuts, dangerous startup entries, spyware, internet history and temporary files. With a couple clicks it can detect and fix numerous system issues.
CCleaner is a free utility used for cleaning your Windows PC. It quickly analyzes your PC and will clean browser history, remove unused and old registry entries and delete temporary and unnecessary files freeing up disk space.
As you install, uninstall, download, copy, move and delete files or applications your hard drive can become fragmented. A fragmented hard dive can lower throughput and cause slowness. Defraggler is a free disk defragmentation tool. Our recommendation is to schedule Defraggler to run weekly to defrag your C drive.
System File Checker
Lastly is the Windows System File Checker. If your PC is running Windows xp or later you have this tool already, and may not even know it. From a command line ( start, run, cmd ) type
sfc /scannow . This utility will scan and check all windows system files and make any necessary repairs to files that may have somehow become corrupted. SFC may require the origional Operating system disk to complete.
