We have all had the problem at some time or another, when the operating system comes on and is very slow, as to how to fix a slow computer!

These are the necessary steps below needed to fix a slow computer:

1. Delete all of the unnecessary items at start up that you do not need. It is only worth keeping antivirus, malware and spyware programs, as well as work documents that you need, when windows loads up.

2. Free up space on the hard drive. No matter if you keep your computer tidy, if your hard drive becomes too full, it will affect the speed of your PC.

3. Uninstall unused programs. Whenever you buy a new PC, there are a load of programs pre-installed onto it. Most of these you'll never use and some of them can often run in the background without you knowing, slowing your computer down in the process.

To remove programs that you do not need, go to start,control panel, then click programs and features, removing items that you do not need! Please do not remove Microsoft updates, as these are all needed to make windows operate properly!

4. Delete temporary files. Whenever you go online and browse different websites, especially in Internet Explorer, all your browsing history remains in the depths of your PC. To delete all of your browsing history, just press control and h at the same time and it will bring up the websites that you have been browsing for the day! Then you can delete accordingly!

5. Run a disk clean up and use a registry cleaner. The disk clean up looks for unnecessary large files. To perform this click "Start" then go to All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Disk Cleanup.

It is also very important to use a registry cleaner because when you install and uninstall programs, little remnants get left behind which could slow down your operating system! Little registry cleaner is a very good tool that can rid of these problems!

6. Clean out the dust with a can of compressed air. Dust always get stuck on the air vents, which is vital to keeping your system temperature down and if it overheats, its performance will slow.
