Keep Your PC Running Smoothly
Even if you are incredibly organized and maintain your computer, the hard drive will eventually get full and slow down your computer’s processing ability. We recommend upgrading your hard drive to a 1TB+ SSD (Solid State Drive). Do not hesitate. To help prevent file loss, we recommend backing up your current hard drive and cloning it.
Cleaning Up Start-Up Tasks
When you boot your computer, the operating system will open programs listed on “start-up tasks.” If you recognize that there are a bunch of programs opening that you don’t need on boot, clean your tasks up by doing the following: Start > Type “Run” > Type “MSConfig” in the text box > Click on the “Start-Up” Tab and uncheck or “disable” any tasks you do not need. We recommend not mess around with any functions tied to your firewall or antivirus software.
Run Disk Defragment
As spooky as this terminology sounds, it isn’t. A disk defragment is the perfect way to optimize the efficiency of your hard drive. If you neglect to defragment your drives, your computer will eventually run so slow that it may not boot. Follow these steps to run a defragmentation on your hard drive: Access the “My Computer” Folder> Right Click on “Hard Drive” > Select “Properties” on the drop-down menu > Click “Tools” > “Click Defragment Now.”
Clean Up Disk
Treat your computer to some much-needed spring cleaning by doing the following: Start > Click “All Programs” > Click “Accessories” > Click “System Tools” > Click “Disk Cleanup.
