Speeding up a 2 year old desktop?

Asked By 20 points N/A Posted on -

Hi experts,

I've been using my desktop for about 2 years, and I think that things are starting to get slow. 

I've decreased the number of files on the hard drive, but are there any other things that I need to do to like "spring clean" my computer"? 

Thanks in advance team.
