What are some tips that can help me speed up my PC?

1. Clean up your disk storage: Uninstall any unnecessary programs, clear out your Downloads folder, delete temporary files and update programs.

2. Update your system: Make sure you’re running the latest version of Windows and any software or drivers.

3. Disable non-essential startup programs: Go to Task Manager and disable or delay unnecessary startup items that don’t need to run.

4. Run a virus scan: Routinely scan your computer for viruses, spyware, and other malicious programs.

5. Manage your browser extensions: If you use a web browser, disable or uninstall extensions that you don’t need.

6. Adjust your power settings: Set your computer’s power plan to “High Performance” mode to boost performance slightly.

7. Run disk defragmentation: This process rearranges fragmented file data on your hard drive to optimize access speed.

8. Overclock your CPU: If your processor is powerful enough, you can overclock it — although this can be risky if done improperly.

9. Upgrade hardware: If none of the above solutions work, you may need to consider upgrading your hardware.
