1. Uninstall unused applications: Uninstalling any programs that you don’t use can help reduce the amount of background processes running.
2. Disable unnecessary startup programs: If programs are set to automatically run in the background when you start your PC, this can slow things down. Check your startup list and disable any programs that you don’t need.
3. Monitor processes regularly: Use a tool such as Task Manager or Process Explorer to monitor and identify any unnecessary processes.
4. Run a malware scan: Malware can generate a range of background processes that can slow your PC down. Make sure to regularly scan for any malicious software.
5. Update drivers: Outdated drivers can cause unnecessary processes to run. Keep them up to date so your hardware is working correctly.
