You might have noticed when you start or Login into Windows, many programs start up automatically like your Antivirus (of course), Google Talk and other Messengers, Nokia Suite, Microsoft Office Loader, Adobe Reader Quick Launch etc. These are some commonly used programs which run automatically with windows start up. You need to keep in mind that the lesser your Icons in the Taskbar, the more faster your computer will load during start up.
Use any utility tool, like Tune Up Utilities which is the best for computer maintenance. It has been my loyal mate since years in tuning up my system. Through this utility you can disable the programs which are not necessary during the Logon. You can enable them if you needed them in future!
2. Free up Disk Space
This is another main reason which gradually slower down your system due to low disk space. People usually install hell-a-lot of applications and programs into their drives especially into their System Drive in which the OS is installed. By default it is C:\ drive in Windows.
You can use Disk Cleanup manager to clean up disks and free some space or you can use the above mentioned utility tool, TuneUp which also includes Gain Disk Space Function to delete your unnecessary files and free up some space. Cleaning up your computer disk space could save you more spaces for other tasks, and it can also help increase your PC’s performance exponentially.

These files could also be the reason for your computer’s ill performance. Whenever you experienced slow speed internet connection on your machine- all you need to do is to remove the temporary files on your machine to increase its performance. Simply visit to this location from your computer -
C:\Users\UserProfile\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files
(where UserProfile is your windows login/user account name)
Go to the above location and simply delete all the temporary internet files which will dramatically help in speeding up your computer.
4. Always Empty the Recycle Bin
People most probably delete the items from their computer and send them directly to the recycle bin rather than deleting them permanently. And those items remain for long as you most often forget to empty your recycle bin.
It is like a junk folder for all deleted files for it takes up huge space from your Local Disk Windows Drive. So it should be always cleared or you can simply delete the files permanently without sending them to the bin. Press “Shift+Del” rather than only “Del” to remove them permanently from your computer!
5. Trash Downloaded Program Files
You must be surely saving the setup file of a software that you downloaded for future use. Of course you do, everybody does. Many people do a collection of software’s which they circulate to the needy ones and keep it for themselves for any further use. But these files sum up a huge amount of space which can be used for any other useful purpose.
Sometimes keeping these files are too risky because if once your system gets attacked with a Malware then it infects all your executable (.exe) files and it will start creating shortcuts and folders which are nothing but malicious programs. Hence your system gets down with viral injection and you have to quarantine which ultimately removes them.
You really don’t need to format or seek help from any expert to make your computer work faster. Simple tweaks and proper maintenance can give you a blazing fast system with no backfires These methods have already been implemented and proved as working which therefore increases your computer’s performance and speeds up, making it work more faster!
