Computer Running Slow? Try these tips to get it fast again.

We’ve all been there.  One day you turn your computer on, and it takes forever just to get started.  Next thing you know, opening a program takes several moments longer than it did just a few months, days, years ago.  Even worse, with internet speeds getting faster and faster, your internet just seems to be getting slower and slower.  Why is that?  Is your computer just getting old?  Should you buy a new one?

We asked Joe Malacina, CEO of No Limit Enterprises, a tech company to break it down for us.  Here are the results:

Computer Age

Computers nowadays should last you a long time.  It is normal to experience a slight slowdown in speeds as the years go by with your computer, but these should barely be noticeable.  In fact, any computer built in 2010 or later should last ten years without missing a single beat.  There are exceptions of course, but for the most part a decent computer should last you a very long time before things start slowing down.

Why is my computer Slow?

For the vast majority of cases, your computer just needs a good cleaning, and I don’t mean with a cloth.  Over time our computers start accumulating a lot of useless programs, and outdated software.  When this happens, your computer usually keeps trying to run the software when its so old that nothing can even run it.  This uses valuable resources that your computer could be using to run smoothly and efficiently.  So what you need to do, is browse through your computer and cleanup all the old junk.

Secondly, spyware and viruses are infecting more and more devices every single day.  So a good virus and spyware scan can clean up a lot of junk.

How do I get my computer fast again?

There are several things you can do to get your computer running like a cheetah again.  The first thing you should do is make sure your computer’s operating system is updated to its newest version.  Some older computers won’t be able to do this, but most can.  Next, run a virus scan and delete any viruses that appear.  You can also cleanup your startup programs.  This will get your computer booting up faster than ever.  I also recommend deleting obsolete programs and utilities.

A Step-By-Step Approach

Going through the steps in an article might be a little confusing, so we searched around for a comprehensive guide to cleaning up your computer and making it fast again.  After reviewing several websites, the best one we could find was on Infinity Guides.  They have a Clean Your Computer Easy Guide that shows you how to clean up your computer in less than 30 minutes.  We ran through the guide ourselves and afterwards, we were impressed with the results.  We found that our computers booted up 20% faster on average, and programs loaded nearly 40% faster.  Our internet browsing also improved quite significantly, and we learned some helpful tips to keep our computer fast.

How to Use the iPhone 7

The new Apple iPhone 7 is here, and the phones have been flying off the shelves at Apple Stores and retailers across the world.  We have everything you need to know about the new iPhone 7.


iOS 10

iOS 10 is simply awesome.  Our favorite feature is everything you can do from inside the Messages app.  iOs 10 has added many additional features to messaging on an iPhone or iPad.  One of our favorites is the new preview that appears within a message when you paste a link.  try it out for yourself.  Sending a link in a message will automatically populate a small preview of the link along with a short description.

The new sending effects for messages is pretty cool too. Just hold down on the send icon to see all the new sending features.  You can now send text messaged with special effects such as fireworks and lasers.

The New Home Button or lack thereof

Here is something that might take getting a little used to.  The new iPhone 7 doesn’t have a home “button.”  Let me clarify, the iPhone 7 has what looks like a home button but it does not actually depress like a button should.  Instead, when you press it you will get vibrational feedback from iPhone 7 that feels like you’ve pressed a button.  It seems Apple did this to shore up some room inside the phone.

Still No Manual with the iPhone 7

The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus do not come with an instructional manual, but there are still plenty of resources available to you to learn how to use your new iPhone.  We recommend checking out Apple Video Guides.  As always, they have a new guide out that covers everything about the iPhone 7 to help get you started.
