Hello all… Your computer is so slow when you start it up? Tadaa..!! Here, I have a tips for you to boost and increase your computer speed, especially when start up. Here we go…
I have tried these way below and it works! Follow my tips below:
1. Empty the Startup folder. Click on Start--> All Programs--> Startup. Click and drag the programs that are not always needed during the startup. For example, the desktop. If you want to run the program, you just need to click on the desktop icon.
2.Disable the start-up programs. To disable programs which are not needed during startup is by clicking: Start--> Run, then type msconfig and click OK. See a list of existing programs and remove the checklist for programs that you don’t need. If you are unsure whether the program they will be useful or not, you can see on www.sysinfo.org/startuplist.php
3. Select the font as needed. Many programs which may install fonts into your computer, which certainly makes your computer’s start up become slower. To remove unnecessary fonts, click Start--> Settings--> Control Panel--> Fonts. Choose the fonts you want to delete/ remove. If you don’t want to delete it, just move the fonts file to another folder.
4. Discard the old drivers which are not used anymore. If you remove the hardware from the system certainly it will increase your computer’s start up speed. Use the Add or Remove Programs in Control Panel to remove the software easily.
5. Stop unneeded services. Service here means a program running in the background on your computer system. Not all services needed, and it can be disabled. Click Start--> Run and type services.msc and click OK to see all services which are running. Select an existing service and the description will appear in what is left of its function. Double click the service and set of 'service type' to disable it. But be careful, you can only do that if you believe it's not going to make your windows a mess you know ... For examples of service who do not need is the Uninterruptible Power Supply, Messenger, Alerter, Clipbook, Remote Registry, Network DDE and Machine Debug Manager. You can see some usefull services that is needed on www.govermentsecurity.org/archive/t1417.html and www.smartadmin.in / dis_un_srv.
6. Disable 'File and printer sharing. If no network connection in your home, and you don’t need to share files and printers, you can disable this option to make faster speed when start-up your computer. It's very easy. Just go to Control Panel, double-click on Network Connections. Right-click each icon and select Properties. Just uncheck "File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks".
7. Defrag your hard disk regularly. The files used to run Windows in a long time will be scattered on your hard disk, which can make the slow process of start-up. Defragmentation can tidy up those files for faster access. To do it, click Start--> All Programs--> Accessories--> System Tools--> Disk Defragmeter. Or use TuneUp Utilities 2007 from TuneUp Software GmbH, for better defragmentation. With TuneUp, you can also clean your computer registry.
8. Set the boot-up sequence. Computers can start reading the system from the hard disk or floppy disk, CD or DVD-ROM drive, USB flash or external hard disk. Make sure the hard disk is the first time they are accessed in Windows. Use the BIOS Setup Utility on your computer. Look for boot-up sequence, make sure your hard disk is in the first place.
9. Empty CD / DVD drives. When you start booting-up, the computer will check the CD / DVD drive is no disk in it, maybe you ever hear the sound drive that spins. Take the disk in the CD / DVD drive before you turn off the computer and when you restart the computer later, it won’t wasting time by checking the contents of the CD / DVD drives.
10. Clean the Prefetch folder. Windows stores recently accessed coffee program in the folder Windows / Prefetch in order to expedite the search process on the hard disk. But some PC experts claim that it’s better to clean Prefetch folder regularly to keep loading programs. Use the minimum when you return your computer. Although some are not agreed. Just try it, it’s safe and you’ll know the difference :)
AND...NOW, I KNOW...!!!
