Windows Optimization for better performance: Part 3

You might have already followed the steps in Optimize Windows for better performance: Part 1 and Part 2. In this part of PC optimization tutorial, you will see what other things you can do beside the ones that are already discussed in Part 1 and part 2. They include performance troubleshooter, uninstalling programs, limiting startup programs, defragging and cleaning up hard disk, and avoiding too many programs running at the same time. In this blog, we will see how visual effects, adding memory, running antivirus, and checking computer’s speed will work for windows optimization.

Note: This blog primarily deals with optimization in windows 7; however, it applies to all versions of windows. The program-accessing steps might somewhat be different but the actions performed to optimize windows for better performance are same for all versions.

Actions you can take for windows optimization

Turning off visual effects

Would you prefer appearance over speed? If not, you must disable some visual effects to enhance computer’s speed and performance. Out of 20 visual controls, either you can choose yourself which ones to disable or let the windows do the magic. To do so:

      1. Go to start and click control panel. In the search box, type “performance.” Among the search results, click “Performance information and tools.”
      2. By clicking on “Adjust visual effects”, a dialog box will open. It is recommended to choose “Let Windows choose what’s best for my computer”; however, you can choose “Adjust for best performance.”

Adding memory

Typically, Windows 7 can run with 1GB RAM. But to have better performance and optimal results, go for more than 1GB. The more is the better. One of the reasons for your computer slowing down is inadequate RAM.
Another way to boost up computer speed is to use Windows ReadyBoost.

Running antivirus scans

If you computer has been as slow as being almost dead, one of the reasons might be malware infection. You must always be scanning your system with a powerful antivirus software regularly and keep it up to date. You can read about and fix various types of viruses, malware, spyware, worms, and Trojans in Antivirus category.

Checking speed of your computer

If your computer is slow even after following all the steps described in Windows optimization tutorial, you are left to choose hardware upgrade or buying a new PC. But you can also check your computer’s speed through Windows Experience Index.

Hope this tutorial helped you for windows optimization.

    Why is this program that is flagged all over the internet in the msn main feed as a real story, msn has some answering to do, leave the repairs to real techs instead of this bogus repair app which is just a bait and swtich for long term service contract.

      Hi PC Tech,

      We do not do bait and switch. Our phone support partners do offer an extra service – a remote repair, but it is targeted to customers who have other existing issues beyond what SpeedFixTool can fix. This, however, is only optional and never obligatory. I wouldn’t call our app bogus because our paying customers can totally attest to its effectiveness.

      All the best on your career!

          Hi,

          I totally respect your take on the Windows vs. Linux battle so I hope you can also do the same for people who opted to just have Windows instead of the latter. I have used both platforms and each has its own set of pros and cons. Not everyone though has the capacity to testbed each.

          All the best!

      Unfortunately I purchased this and everything started to go wrong with my laptop and I had to uninstall it and restore to an earlier time. I also checked for compatibility and it was said that it was not compatible.

    I agree with the earlier – your ad says “diagnose and FIX your computer!” – but you just get a report, no fixing.

    The 3-part article was a laughable waste of time – I had heard all of those tips and have been applying them since the early ’90s, about when Windows 3.1was state of the Art and your office PC was outfitted 4 whole Megabytes of RAM and an 80 MB hard drive!

      Hi Fank,

      Our free version only scans your computer to show you what needs to be fixed. If you want to try the Premium version, you can do so for a minimal cost. We do have a 30-day money-back guarantee if you’re not satisfied at all. I can honestly tell you that we’ve helped a lot of people already, who happen to be not as technically sound as you… just with the use of our tool. Most of them are pretty happy with how their computers are performing now.

      All the best!

        ha ha ha ha. comment awaiting moderation. so what does that mean? are you telling everyone that you dont want negative coments? it would seam to me that if you really had a good program you would want all feedback. interestingly i am very possitive that any feedback introducing a product which does not need your paying program would not be acceptable. just saying lol

          Hi,

          I think we already did our part with regard to your first post. Need we say anything about your claims regarding moderation and our competitors? No matter how you look at it, it will always be subjective.

          Still hope the best for your choices.
