Owning a PC is great. A PC changes our life in a considerable manner, especially in the case of youth. But they say that a machine is after all a machine. PCs are no different, and when they get stubborn…..banging the monitor or fiddling the keyboard doesn’t help.
As your machine grows old, you will notice that the startup boot takes longer time, click on an icon and the application takes ages to open, you are in midst of an exciting gunfire in a game and then your computer decides to take a nap, throwing you out from world war 2 to a blank screen. Computers can be trying sometimes, but there are smarter ways to deal with such issues. Notwithstanding the fact that your PC has a major hardware or OS issue, most of the users’ problems arise out of a simple fact….’Large Usage Period of the Device’. You can’t expect a five years old computer behave like what it did five years ago.
Yet a simple and healthy habit (healthy for your PC health) can help improve your PC performance considerably. That habit is, Running a Periodic Scan. A scan that just not scans for malware or viruses, but an overall scan which deals with disk issues, waste occupation of memory, network boosting, shortcut fix, junk files etc. After years of using downloaded content and pirated games and movies, the toll is sure to come down on your machine.
We think that deleting a file from the recycle bin is the ultimate termination of any software. Yet, obvious to you, when you download a particular content or borrow one from a friend, it is not just the main application that is imported but a whole lot of other unwanted files hop along into your drive with it and occupy your registers. And the worst part is….they don’t get deleted when their parent program is deleted. They continue to occupy your drive’s precious memory and as days pass, the effect is reflected in your PC performance and speed. Running periodic scans using requisite software addresses such issues that go a long way in improving your PC performance. You might not be able to afford a full-fledged registry cleaner and full scan software, but this article tells you about an amazing freeware from Iobit that does this job free of cost. Follow the following steps carefully:
