A guide to maintaining your computer

Post  Gothboy77 on Thu May 26, 2011 5:35 am

There are many things that can slow a computer down. Thats why I'm here to help you speed it back up.

1. Use Disk Cleanup: This can be found on all current Windows OS. Start>Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Disk Cleanup
Make sure to check everything EXCEPT compress old files. Compressing old files can damage games and other stuff.

2. Disk Defrag: This can be found on all current Windows OS. Start>Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Disk Cleanup

3. Add/Remove Programs: This can be found on all current Windows OS. Start>Control Panel>Add or Remove Programs
Deleting old files doesn't always mean the files are completely removed from your system.

4. Get C Cleaner: http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner DO NOT SELECT "WIPE FREE SPACE"

5. Open the case and remove dust from the fans and motherboard. Advanced, but if you know what your doing, you can do it.
