Computer optimization and tuneup
Over time computers can get full of old files and folders that you no longer use or need. They can be subjected to viruses and malware and generally become clogged up and defragmented. These things can all lead to your computer slowing down and becoming sluggish and unresponsive.
Once your PC stops performing at its optimum level it can make even the simplest tasks like opening and closing documents time consuming and lengthy – not to mention trying to download software or media. It’s not just computers that have been in use for a while either. When you buy a new computer it often comes with unnecessary software known as bloatware that is pre-installed and is more than capable of slowing down your PC.
Once you start experiencing problems with your computer it is time for a computer tune up which will involve the following steps:
- Clean up unused files and folders
- Remove any bloatware (pre-installed software)
- Increase the RAM
- Update the operating system
- Remove Spyware and pop ups
- Disk clean up
- Cleaning power and fan units that can get clogged up with dust
Cleaning up computer files and foldersThis process involves deleting any files and folders that are no longer in use and that are just sat taking up valuable memory on your pc. Once all the junk files, installation and left over files are removed the performance will be a little better but there are even more steps involved in a PC tune up. Next the computer is defragmented to make sure that all file data is grouped together making it easier for your device to read the information.
Increase the RAMRAM or Random Access Memory can also be increased to ensure that your computer can cope with the demands that you are placing on it. This involves finding the already installed RAM and replacing it with a version that has more capacity.
