2. Update Drivers and Software: Outdated drivers and software can cause conflicts, errors, and significantly slow down system performance. Make sure to update all of your drivers and software when they become available.
3. Uninstall Unneeded Applications: Uninstall any applications that are not being used. This will help free up resources and speed up the system.
4. Enable Disk Cleanup and Defragmenter: Use the built-in Disk Cleanup utility to delete temporary files and clear up storage space. Then use the defragmenter to optimize the hard drive for faster performance.
5. Enable System Monitoring or Optimizer: Install a system monitoring or optimization utility to keep track of your system’s performance and ensure it runs smoothly.
