Your computer needs regular check-ups and maintenance runs to be in an optimized state. Is your PC really slow? Does it take too long to respond? Do you regularly perform any checks on your computer to see if it is running well? You must. Here are a few things that you can do to optimize your computer easily.
Disk error clean up
Disk error is a log that your computer creates whenever an error happens on the hard disk. If there’s a power outage, which doesn’t leave you with time to save your documents and shut down the PC, the Disk Error tool creates a log entry for it. If these errors get accumulated, there’s a chance that your computer might run slow. You need to run a program called Disk Check to check and clear these errors from your computer. To run this program, you need to login from the administrator account of the computer because only an administrator has the rights to run this program.
Sometimes, your operating system might need a bug or an update to keep up with the times. That’s why Microsoft releases patches and updates on a regular basis. To automatically install these updates and patches/fixes, Microsoft came up with the tool, Windows Update. On Windows Update, you can set the option to ‘Install Updates Automatically’ to automate the Windows Update Process. You don’t have to worry about the fixes and updates anymore! They would be downloaded automatically as soon as they are available for download.
Cleaning up temporary files
Whenever you open any file or a document on your computer a copy of that is saved in a folder that’s called ‘Temp’. This folder is on RAM of your computer because it’s easy for the computer from retrieve the file from RAM than Hard Disk. This ‘Temp’ folder on your computer needs to be cleaned regularly. This folder can be cleaned with another Microsoft Tool called ‘Disk Cleanup’. Again, you need to have administrator rights on your computer to run this program.
These are a few things that you could do, to ensure that your computer is in an optimized state, all the time.
