Are there any advanced techniques to speed up my PC?

1. Disable startup programs: Many programs automatically start with your computer, putting a strain on the memory and other system resources. Disable any programs you don’t need to start up automatically.

2. Clean up your hard drive: Having a full hard drive can slow down your PC. Free up space by deleting unnecessary files, such as old documents and temporary files.

3. Install more RAM: If your system is still running slow, adding more RAM might help speed up your computer.

4. Scan for malware: Malware can slow down your PC and potentially expose your personal data. Run a scan using an updated anti-malware program to ensure you have the latest virus definitions.

5. Defragment your hard drive: Fragmentation occurs when files become scattered across your hard drive – this can slow down access times to those files. Use the Disk Defragmenter tool to rearrange files on your hard drive, making them easier to locate.
