If your computer runs slow at start up, then you need to remove some of the files that automatically starting as the computer starts. Many of these programs are unnecessary and were simply put there by the computer manufacturer for various reasons or added by downloads or program installs. But you may not need them “running” and many times we don’t know they are even there, much less using up valuable capacity resulting in a computer runs slow problem.
How do you do this? All you have to do is to click on the start button and choose run, and a dialog box will appear. Type the word MSCONFIG and then click OK. Once this is done, you will be able to see the entire list of programs that are going to run once your computer starts up. You have to uncheck all the unnecessary programs that are on to the list, just leave the firewall and the antivirus, because these programs are very important. You can just run the rest of the programs manually, if or when you will need them.
Another reason for a a computer running slow is the virtual memory. If your computer has limited RAM capacity and your hard drive is fully loaded with programs and files, it will definitely run slower than you’d like. You can fix this problem by simply upgrading the RAM (Random Access Memory) of your computer; make sure that the additional RAM is compatible with your PC because there are different types and some of them will not work. If you regularly use several programs at the same time such as Windows Media Player, Yahoo Messenger, P2P downloads, and RPG game, etc., you must have a minimum of 512 Megabyte of RAM, this is usually enough to get four programs running simultaneously.
These are only few of what you can do if ever your computer experiences such problem.
