Computer speed is very slow

Asked By 240 points N/A Posted on -


I have brought my new PC. Its RAM is of 3GB and harddisk is of 320GB but still my computer speed is very slow. I regularly defragment my drives. Use C-cleaner to delete garbage.

I also have AVG software(Antivirus) which I update regularly. But still my computer's speed is not improving.

Can anybody guide what other things can I do to make my computer speed fast?

Hey Joe4,

I read your problem. It is really weird when a high speed computer performs like that,  though I have some solutions.

1. Disable those useless startup programs to increase your computer speed.

2. Try to delete temp folders.

3. Do not save large files on drive C.

4. Run Defrag. Open My Computer and right click your C drive. Select tools, then Error Checking. Click yes to schedule a scan and reboot.

5. Check your Drive C total free space. If it's almost full try to delete some unnecessary files and always try to make huge space in drive C.

Hope those tips will help you.
