Tips to improve System Speed
#1

Let's quickly do a run down of some simple basic tips on how to make your system faster:
1.Let your PC boot up completely before opening any
application.
2.Refresh the desktop after closing any application. This
will remove any unused files from the RAM.
3.Do not set very large file size images as your
wallpaper. Do not keep a wallpaper at all if your PC is
low on RAM (less than 64 MB).
4.Do not clutter your Desktop with a lot of shortcuts.
Each shortcut on the desktop uses up to 500 bytes of
RAM
5.Empty the recycle bin regularly. The files are not really
deleted from your hard drive until you empty the recycle
bin.
6.Delete the temporary internet files regularly.
7.Defragment your hard drive once every two months.
This will free up a lot of space on your hard drive and
rearrange the files so that your applications run faster. To
defragment your hard drive go to my computer icon on
the desktop and right click it then go to manage
options,there you will see "Disk defragmenter". Click it
then analyze and defrag your drives.You can also defrag
your drives using third party software like AVG PC
tools,Disk Defragmenter etc.
8.Always make two partitions in your hard drive. Install
all large Softwares (like PSP, Photoshop, 3DS Max etc) in
the second partition. Windows uses all the available
empty space in C drive as virtual memory when your
Computer RAM is full. Keep the C Drive as empty as
possible.
9.When installing new Softwares disable the option of
having a tray icon. The tray icons use up available RAM,
and also slow down the booting of your PC. Also disable
the option of starting the application automatically when
the PC boots. You can disable these options later on also
from the Tools or preferences menu in your application.
10. Protect your PC from dust. Dust causes the CPU
cooling fan to jam and slow down thereby gradually
heating your CPU and affecting the processing speed.
Use compressed air to blow out any dust from the CPU.
Never use vacuum.
RAM IS THE WORKING AREA (DESKTOP) OF THE CPU,
KEEP IT AS EMPTY AND UNCLUTTERED AS POSSIBLE!
