Want more speed?
"This PC is so slow!"
This is a cry that's been uttered by PC users since, well, PCs were first invented.
Since we don't think that there's anyone out there who wouldn't like to squeeze a little more performance out of their PC, we've pulled together six top tips that will help you get the most out of your Windows PC, without having to spend a fortune.
These tips will work for any PC running Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8.
Get rid of the junk
There's nothing like having loads of junk installed on a system to turn even the best PC into a river of molasses.
There's two sorts of junk to consider. The first is the stuff that the PC makers install into new PCs, and the other is the junk that you (and other people using the PC) have installed on it.
You could spend your whole weekend manually tracking down this junk, but it makes much more sense to get a tool to do the job automatically, and the best tool out there for this job is PC Decrapifier. This free download will scan your system and quickly (and safely) remove any junk on your system.
After running PC Decrapifier you might optionally want to do a pass using another free tool called CCleaner. This will go a bit deeper and clean your system of temporary files, log files and other junk.
