Need to speed up my system

Asked By 240 points N/A Posted on -

I have a 2.6 GHz processor & 3GB RAM.

But after using some days I have to setup my operating system again to speed up my pc.

How can I speed up my system without doing this?

It starts working very slow after some weeks of setup the operating system.

I have used some of the tune up software, but it does not work.

I am so sick of it. What can I do?

You have to take care of your PC regularly to keep your system smooth. The regular maintenance can lessen your pain. Here is some tips to keep your system smooth.

  1. Always try to keep your Ram as empty as possible. That will help you to speed up your system greatly. Always refresh your desktop after closing any kind of applications. That will empty some memory from RAM.
  2. Never gather a lot of files on the desktop. It also eat up memories of RAM. Remove unused shortcuts from the desktop.
  3. Do not use large size wallpaper or screen saver. Also do not use folder background wallpapers. It makes slow your system.
