Uninstall Unused Programs

Aren’t using some of the programs you originally installed? These can actually slow down your device. We recommend going through your installed programs periodically to determine if any should be removed. 

Limit Startup Programs

Did you know that too many startup programs can actually slow down the startup and performance of your device? We recommend disabling any programs that aren’t required to sart your device, this can drastically improve the startup process.

Disk Cleanup

Running disk cleanup can remove temporary and unused files that are being stored on your computer, providing more space to utilize along with potentially improving the speed of your device. We recommend running it at least once a month to remove any files that aren’t needed any longer.

Adjust Visual Effects

While it is nice to have a pretty operating system, it can actually impact the performance of your computer. We recommend adjusting the visual effects of your device to be best performance instead of making it look as best as possible.
