All of you must have noticed that over the time your pc/laptop performance has degraded. you must have scratched your head and blamed it on to the hardware peripherals eg. Ram, Processor etc. Well as much as its true that these are the most crucial factors behind your system performance, there are certain other factors aswell that determines its performance like disk fragmention, registry fragmentation, number of startup items, number of background services running etc. Follow these tips to improve your system performance and get the most out of your system.
1. Remove unwanted startup items: The more startup items you keep, the longer it will take to boot. So keep only the absolute necessary items. To do that go to Start> Run or just press win key + R and type msconfig or in case of windows vista/win 7 type here and press enter.
A dialog box appears now. click on startup tab and disable all those items that you dont need. Personally i keep just two items one is the antivirus the second one varies from time to time.
