1. Perform disk clean-up: Clean up your temporary files, empty your Recycle Bin and delete old programs that are no longer used.
2. Increase your RAM: Installing more RAM can help your computer run faster as it gives your computer more space to store temporary files.
3. Uninstall unused programs: If you have programs installed that you never use, uninstall them to free up space on your hard drive and make your PC run faster.
4. Update your drivers: Make sure you update your graphics and sound drivers regularly as this can provide a performance boost.
5. Install an antivirus: Make sure you have an antivirus program installed as this will protect your computer from viruses, malware and other threats.
6. Disable startup programs: Stop unnecessary programs from running when your computer starts up. This will reduce the burden on your computer and can speed up boot times.
7. Defragment your hard drive: Fragmentation occurs when your computer’s hard drive gets full of files and folders. Defragmenting your hard drive puts all your data back into order and helps your computer run faster.
8. Overclock your processor: Overclocking your processor can make your computer run faster but it’s not recommended unless you know what you’re doing as it can also damage components.
