It can be really frustrating when you are working on your computer and it is running slow but is there something that you can do to improve the situation or do you need to seek professional help and support. Even though a good deal of optimisation happens automatically on your computer there are a number of steps you can take which will improve the speed of your computer.

The first thing is to look at the programmes that are installed and whether they are starting up automatically when you switch on your computer. Uninstalling programmes that are never used and disabling auto start up is a simple step that can be undertaken.

Making sure that all updates are installed is a measure that is wise especially the anti-virus. Many anti-virus software companies offer programmes that can speed up your computer and will identify any problems with your system and clean your internal drive.

Another issue that can affect the speed of your computer can be rectified in your computer settings. If you are using power saver mode, this can slow down performance. By changing the settings to high performance or balanced mode means the speed of your computer could be boosted instantly.
