Faster Computer Start Up

Is your laptop computer slowing down? Faster computer start up can be done by performing five (5) easy and no cost steps.  You can achieve faster computer performance just by doing some easy routine computer maintenance.  Faster computer start up and faster computer performance can happen without buying a new laptop computer.

You do want to Speed Up Your Laptop right?  Do you want fast computer start up?  It is easy and free by following five (5) simple steps that I show you how to do down below. 

Faster computer start up and faster computer performanceAll computers begin to slow down after some extensive periods of usage.  It could be a number of weeks, months, or even years depending on how often the computer is used.  But this much is true, it does happen.  Your computer will slow down.  Not because it is broken.  It just needs a little help from you.

I could tell you in complicated terms why it happens.  Or I could just tell you in simple to understand words that it just gets clogged up with junk. That your hard drive storage after a while just gets confused.  That your Windows operating system just has way to many programs starting up after booting up.  That your operating system software registry just gets clogged up with too many old, unused and unnecessary junk entries.

Old computer laptops as well as newer laptop computers can gain faster computer start up and faster computer performance.  Just by performing some routine maintenance steps your computer laptop will run almost like new again.

Five Steps To Faster Computer Performance

  1. Hard drive Disk Defrag, storage housekeeping (Watch Video On How To Defrag)
  2. Eliminate unnecessary startup programs
  3. Unclogged your registry - Registry clean up
  4. Delete Browsing History - Browser Clean up
  5. Run Hard drive Check Disk

1) Disk Defragmentation

Disk defrag is ran on your hard drive. Whenever files are created, deleted or changed they almost always become fragmented.  Simply put, the file is not stored in one place. Bits of it are scatter across different places on your hard drive. This means it takes longer to retrieve information from your hard drive...hence slowing down your computer.  To fix this and speed up your computer storage retrieval you can run a defragmentation program. 

Three ways to access disk defrag:

  • Start | All Programs | Accessories | System Tools | Disk Defragmenter 
  • Start | Run | and type dfrg.msc in the Open line. Click OK 
  • Watch Video On How To Defragment Your Hard Drive

I recommend you run disk defrag at least once a month on your computer laptop and your computer desktop.


2) Stop Unnecessary Startup Programs

Stop those unneeded programs that startup when your computer boots up.  Just about every program that gets installed on your computer, seems to want to start up when your computer starts up.  This slows down your laptop computer very quickly and quite dramatically.  They slow down your computer during shut downs and start ups.  They also eat up valuable computer memory that you could being using for programs that you really want to use.

So go through your computer programs that you have installed one by one.  Go to their program preferences or program options and uncheck automatic program startup.  You can also run a free Windows utility program called " MSCONFIG " to stop some programs from automatically starting up. 

How to access MSCONFIG:

  • Start | Run | and type MSCONFIG in the Open line. Click OK

You will be very surprise to see an incredible difference in your laptop computer speed.  But only after you eliminate those unnecessary startup programs.






3) Unclogged Your Windows Registry

Everything and I mean everything that is ever installed or uninstalled on your computer is listed in the Windows registry.  Your computer registry grows like one hungry monster and never stops eating.  And it never goes on a diet.  It retains everything forever.  The bigger it gets the slower your computer will get.  It just gets so clogged up that it even gets corrupted causing computer errors.  Or just gets so clogged up that some programs will even stop working.  The congested Windows registry will slow down your computer constantly until you perform a clean up and...
