9 The Slow Computer Causes

As a computer user, of course we all want a good computer performance, rapid response, access to current data without having to wait a long time and so forth. Therefore it's good we know what caused or influenced by the slow computer. Following a brief review 9 things that most commonly cause a slow computer performance plus tips or solutions.1. Malware (viruses, worms, trojans, etc.)
When computers are affected by malware (viruses, worms, trojans, and the like), it's almost certain that computer performance will be slow. The virus will often use computer resources either RAM or CPU, as well as continuously monitor computer activity. This is certainly very influential on the performance of other applications.The solution to prevent this for Windows users is to install antivirus and not just stop there, but regular antivirus updates. Schedule at least once a week if the computer is not online.2. Spyware, Adware and the like
If we often use the computer to the Internet were, if not careful there is a possibility the computer can get infected with spyware. The effect is probably not so great with computer performance, but could affect Internet access, and various things that disturb the comfort of surf and worse, important data (user, password, account, etc.) we can be known by the creator of this spyware.Solutions can install Anti-spyware is also constantly updated, just need to be sorted out which ones are not much use of my resources (resources) our computers, because it is not uncommon Antispyware uses the CPU and Memory that is large enough. If antivirus is included, we do not need to add. Or use a portable version, and regularly scan for spyware only.3. Number of applications running in the background
The more our computers with software, usually the more slow computer performance, although its influence is relatively small and there are great. It is important to note when installing the software, check whether an application is always running in the background. This can be in the know with programs like Autoruns.The solution in this case is important to use software only, select one software if there is some similar software or have similar features and if there is a version of its portable so can be an alternative. To reduce the program running in the background, use Autoruns and disable unnecessary background applications. To to see whether the application is installed to run the program on the back, install software such as WinPatrol.4. Hard disk (HDD) which has age
When computers are still using the hard drive that is long enough (old), probably more than 5 years, then it gets slow computer performance. To check, we can use free software HDD Tune and the like (see article: Check the condition of your Computer Hard Disk). SATA HDD normally average read access (read) about 70-90 MB / s. If for example the average HDD access under 50 MB / s then the performance will usually feels slow.Solutions when the hard drive is very slow, may be tried with full format (beware, backup data first). Although the old hard drive to this usually will not help much, so the best is to replace the new hard drive, and if you still want to use the old hard drive, use as a secondary hard drive only.5. RAM / Memory mediocre
Many of the small number of RAM / memory that we use can not be made a standard equal to one computer to another computer or even the operating system. Although when it will install Windows, there is a minimum specification of RAM, but the type of application that we use must also be taken into account. To check, just open Task Manager and in the Performance section and also check the PF Usage Physical Memory shows the total physical memory (RAM) and the remaining available (Available).
If we are not running any applications, but the rest of RAM is no more than half, usually the computer's performance will be slow, it must be checked for any application that uses lots of memory (RAM), generally can be checked in the Process tab, Mem Usage column. If indeed we are a mediocre RAM (eg, Windows XP with 512 MB of RAM or less, windows 7 with 1 GB of RAM), then the cheapest solution is to reduce the applications that require less memory. The best solution is to upgrade memory (RAM) (read: Know what the RAM).6. Conflict applications or programs that are installed
Not infrequently two applications in the same category could result in conflict, the increasingly slow computer performance. The signs of conflict have put the troubled computer after you install the software, whereas previously there was no problem. Conflict that often occurs usually in the category of security software, such as antivirus.For example we use 2 antivirus or more. Although some antivirus can run simultaneously, but still not recommended, except for expert users or for trial. Not to mention when still have to install other security software.If there is an alternative variety of similar software, then if possible choose one that can represent, and superior in performance and results. Especially for this type of software that a lot of access to resources or the operating system.7. Selection Software inappropriate
Not a few people just went along with (trend) in the use of software, but actually desirable features found in other software that is small and free. If we are indeed minimal computer specs or we want to work quickly, then choose the right software. Software with large size is not always better and appropriate for each of us. Here are some examples:When we just want to burn data to CD / DVDs, exact solutions can use ImgBurnWhen we work with compressed data (zip, rar), free software such as 7zip which size is only about 1 MB should be sufficient, rather than install Winzip 15 which measures nearly 13 MB and is also not free (other free compression software)If using Photoshop 7 or CS1 / 2 is sufficient for the needs of graphics, then install Photoshop CS5 need to re think deeper, because the specification required is quite high, so that could work more slowly.8. Number of Software installed
Although the software is installed is not running behind, but almost every software always adding entry (data) to the registry, so that more software is installed size of registry (windows) will also be even greater. Because of this registry will be accessed when the computer runs well and has been running, the size also affect the speed / her response time.The solution is to use software that is necessary only, Uninstall unnecessary software and use it like Revo Uninstaller Uninstaller for uninstallasi process more thoroughly. To clean uninstall software that is already on, can also use various Utilities for free.9. Use the Windows Stock excessive
Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7 provides the option to use a display with various effects. If your computer has good specs, of course many of these effects is not a problem, but if you want faster performance, a variety of effects on non-windows can be enabled.For example Windows XP, right-click My Computer, select the Advanced tab and click the Performance setting. We also perform a tweaked system to get the settings right and quickly, using software such as X-Setup Pro.
Actually, in addition to the above 9 things are still many other reasons, such as various service windows that are running are actually not necessary, selection and arrangement of hardware that is not optimal, the primary disk space (for example, drive C:) is on the verge of the limit or running low,
