One of the most common complaints of computer owners is a slow running computer. You go to read an article or play a game and it takes forever to download, pauses and freezes up.

Some of you may not even be old enough to remember dial up internet! At the time it was considered the dominate way to connect to the internet. For today’s topic I want to go over a couple more reasons very quickly as to why your computer may slow down.

So what causes a computer to slow down? There are a few factors that we will go over that you can take preventative measures to keep from happening. One of the most obvious things that will slow down your computer is having a virus.

A virus can be picked up at any web site even at ones that are supposed to be trustworthy. Hackers can attach a virus to any software; look at the Target credit card fiasco! Your best preventative measure is going to be biting the bullet and investing in a good anti-virus program.

Most will help clear up the issue as well as prevent future problems. If this doesn’t work you can feel free to contact me directly.

PC Troubleshooting tip number 2:

Another issue you may be having is that your registry is full or you have corrupted files somewhere in your computer. Everything you do on the computer is doubled and there is saved files and
fragments you don’t even know about.

Your best bet in this case is to download a free copy of CC cleaner, a product I have been using for years. This can be found through a site called file hippo. It fixes registry issues and deletes files
that are not needed; usually I have 200+ megabytes to delete.
