Free Guide! Make your computer faster!

Recommended Posts

This is SO simple. I went from 60% cpu usage on average to 40%. It works for pc only!

First, I went trough my programs and uninstalled all the programs I have not used in forever. I also deleted the files I didn't need in "program files".

Next, I downloaded this off of the Microsoft website, and I ran it to get rid of junk programs on start up and that sort of thing.

Finally, I ran a Norton antivirus scan of my computer to get rid of temp files and such. I do this often so I don't know how much it helped.

This worked for me and I was so happy that I decided to write this post tongue.png Post below if it works for you.

1.5 - Browsers
 
Browsers also play a very important part in keeping your computer secure! I listed them in my personal preference. If you're using Internet Explorer, well say goodbye to it. IE has very little protection against the many threats of the internet. It fails to block even the least complex ad from downloading itself into your computer, without your permission. Here is your selection for a new browser:
 
 
Firefox is the best browser in my opinion (of course, some will disagree). It is very safe, very fast. The image to the left is my Firefox. It has a custom theme as well as some add-ons. There are so many add-ons .

I personally use these programs for general PC maintenance or cleanup.

 

IOBit Malware Fighter

Advanced System Care 6

CCleaner

Avast

Glary's Utilities

Wise Disk/Registry Cleaner

 

And after all of those have been completed I usually just do a check of my installed programs to make sure there aren't any non-used ones. I also adjust my startup items since they all magically end up getting re-added. You can access your startup items by typing 'msconfig' into your windows search bar in the bottom left.
