  1. Cautious with software and plugins: There are abundance of videos, movies, images, programs, plugins and other remarkable content that people download almost daily. You must be vigilant when downloading programs and setting up them on your computer, because it might seem guiltless at first, but can still be a threat to your computer if it is downloaded from skeptical websites. Besides malware and other infections your computer can get, malevolent programs can spoil computer’s system and form it much slower.
  2. Cope your cookies: Some of the pop-ups are there to bring you with malware, but not all of them are awful. Either way, you should obstruct pop-ups, to be sure your computer will function well. Set your browser to hinder it by default, and you have nothing to be afraid of.
  3. Try to be less gracious on social networks: Many links that you will get on social networks may guide you to untrusted websites and potentially cause a trouble with your computer, crashing its system arbitrarily. Not that all of them are like this, but if the story appears too good to be true, it could be a deception. Just try to be cautious, this is all.
  4. Public Wi-Fi is not constantly a safe place: Though public Wi-Fi can alleviate our lives when it appears to communication, but it can still be unsafe just connecting. So just be wary when you are accessing your personal and sensitive information, through their free service.
  5. Turn off needless programs: There are lots of programs that run in the background of your computer, making it much slower than usual. Most of these programs, you probably do not even require, and by shutting them down, you will boost the overall system speed and performance. To get rid of all these useless programs, go to: Control Panel> Programs and Features> and you will observe the list of installed software. Uninstall those that you do not wish to have anymore.
  6. Remove temporary files: Set an option to automatically remove temporary files, because they are slowing your computer down. Do the following:
  • Go to My Computer> Local Drive (usually C:\)> Windows folder> open the Temp folder> right click on it> on View options, choose Details.
  • Select all the older files and delete them.
  • At the end, go to Recycle Bin and empty it. Or, you can stare at this tutorial video that clarifies the process.

By removing these files, you should have more space on your hard disc and it should influence speeding up your computer.
