1. Unnecessary startup programs: Disable any software that starts automatically when you turn on your computer, especially if you don’t use it regularly or it takes up lots of system resources. This can also be done in the Task Manager.
2. System restore points: Turning off system restore points can help improve performance because they take up valuable disk space and can slow down your PC.
3. Background applications: Disable any applications that run in the background, such as Dropbox and Google Drive, as they can also consume valuable resources and slow down your system.
4. Search Indexing: Disabling Windows search indexing can free up disk space and help speed up searches.
5. Automatic Updates: Turning off automatic updates can help keep your system running smoothly, as large automatic updates can slow down your machine.
