Thirdly, the temporary files which are stored on the drives make the PC slower than normal. All these problems can be cured easily.

Tips for optimization

One must be quite familiar with the ‘disc clean up’ term. The disc clean up is used to clean up the specified disc from unwanted files. This proves to be quite helpful and is regarded as the first step to optimize the computer. Once in a month the user must defragmentize the discs of the hard drive to arrange the files stored on the system. To optimize the explorer make sure that the amount of history stored on the system is small. More history requires more space on the disc and the result is slower performance. The final step in optimizing the computer is to download only recommended updates. The user must install only the recommended updates. This option is given in the control panel. Use it wisely and it will make the computer faster than before.
