Speed Up Your Computer
Does your computer take forever to startup?
Did it used to start much faster when it was new?
Before you assume that it is outdated and needs to be replaced, let a Gregory The Geek Performance Specialist perform a FREE Performance Checkup, While You Wait! We can speed up your computer.
You can speed up most computers by cleaning them up or adding additional RAM (Random Access Memory) but you want to make sure you choose the right option.
If you want to see if your computer is being slowed by excess processes running in the background, try this quick test in Windows:
- Press Ctrl-Alt-Del to launch the Windows Task Manager
- Look at Processes
The lower the number, the more resources Windows has to execute your desired commands.
If The Number Is More Then 35-40 On A Desktop Computer Or 40-45 On A Laptop Computer, You May Need To Have Your System Examined To Determine If The Excess Processes Are Malicious Hidden Programs Or Unnecessary Items That Are Dragging Down Your Computer's Performance.
Stop Unneeded Processes
These excess processes could include:
- Hidden Spyware And Adware Programs
- Silent Identity Stealing Trojans
- Viruses and Self Spreading Worms
- Unneeded Programs
- Unneeded Auto-Launchers
- Excess Printer Drivers
- Excess Digital Camera Programs
- Excess Programs Loading at Startup
Do you have a bunch of icons in the system tray? Does your computer take a long time to start up? Many "gadget" programs want to load automatically at start up and each one sits in memory chewing up resources including memory and CPU cycles. Even worse some programs load at start up and never even let you know they're doing it. I've worked on computers that have had in excess of 100 start up programs (including necessary Windows processes).
Get rid of them! Most of them were probably install once and forget and you'll never miss them. Identifying them is another story but there are alternatives that will help you track them down.
Let the Experts at Gregory The Geek evaluate the best course to take to increase the speed of your computer!
