Remember when you first got your PC? Remember how fast it was? Everything seemed to operate at warp speed. Does it still work that way or do you now impatiently tap the desk top while you wait for it to start up?
There are a few ways to speed up your PC. The first and easiest is to limit the programs that open at start up. This is usually the most common reason why your system runs slow. Too many computer users don't monitor how many programs are opening at start up. The more programs, the slower your system. And the greater the aggravation. It's also easy to fix.
You can disable the unwanted programs from launching at start up by using a special software. There are several on the market, for example, XoftSpySE Anti-Spyware 7.0 which has a Startup Editor. Or just do run the keyword phrase "disable unwanted programs from launching at start-up" in your favorite search engine.
Of course, if you know what you're doing, which I don't, you can edit the "msconfig" file. I would never attempt this because I'd probably delete or change something crucially important to my PC's health.
Don't settle for poor performance. There are many software apps that can enhance your PC's start up speed.
