Hello everyone!

I bought a new desktop PC last year and it is a Windows 7. At first, it was fast to use, but now, it took a while to open a program. Do I need to upgrade my Windows 7?

Hey Queenie, 

It's a good idea to uninstall all the programs you don't plan to use. This should include both manufacturer installed software and software you installed yourself, but don't want any more especially utility programs designed, to help manage and tune your computer's hardware and software.

Utility programs such as virus scanners, disk cleaners, and backup tools often run automatically at startup, quietly chugging along in the background, where you can't see them. Many of us have no idea they're even running. Uninstall it first, try and see if your PC runs faster.

Hoping it will help you.

If your PC is running slowly, it's possible that it's infected with a virus or spyware. This is not as common as the other problems, but it's something to consider. Before you worry too much, check your PC using anti spyware and Antivirus programs. A common symptom of a virus is a much slower than normal computer performance.

Other signs include unexpected messages that pop up on your PC, programs that start automatically, or the sound of your hard disk constantly working. Spyware is a type of program that's installed, usually without your knowledge, to watch your activity on the Internet. You can check for spyware with Windows Defender or other anti spyware programs.

Sometimes this is obvious, because the program adds an icon to the notification area on the taskbar, where you can see it running. Look there to see if there are any programs running that you don’t want to start automatically.

Point to each icon to see the program name. Be sure to click the Show hidden icons button so you don't miss any icons. From there you can see it running, it's up to you to turn it off or let it turned on.

That's right Queenie, Arvie9 knows what he's saying. I have a simple tip for you. Restart your PC at least once a week, especially if you use it a lot. Restarting it is a good way to clear out its memory and ensure that any errant processes and services that started running get shut down. It closes all the software running on your PC, not only the programs you see running on the taskbar, but also dozens of services that might have been started by various programs and never stopped.

It can also fix mysterious performance problems when the exact cause is hard to pinpoint. If you keep so many programs, email messages, and websites open that you think restarting is a hassle, that's probably a sign you should restart your PC. The more things you have open and the longer you keep them running, the greater the chances your PC will bog down and eventually run low on memory.

If you try our tips and your computer is still too slow, you might need a new PC or some hardware upgrades, such as a new hard disk or faster video card. There's no need to guess the speed of your computer.

Hi Queenie

Using either a laptop or a desktop PC can be sometimes very frustrating particularly if we are using a slow computer. All PC are generally faster when they are brand new but with time, they become slower as we are using it. The reasons for this slowness are things like adware, spyware and other common threats that are usually acquired via internet.
