Reasons for slow XP computers
- Increased fragmentation in file systems
- Overload of startup programs
- Malware attack
- If your PC has been taken as hostage by hackers it may slow down
- Unwanted storage in the hard disk mainly in the C: drive
- Overheating problems
- Registry errors
- If your Windows XP PC has been connected to a network it may slow down due to bandwidth problems
Not only are these but there many other deeper reasons for a computer to perform slowly. Slow computers can reduce the performance and your work’s productivity. Do you wish to suffer from these problems? No you wouldn’t! So what are the possible solutions for these problems?
- Install latest anti-virus software
Install latest anti-virus software and update your virus-definitions regularly. Most of the viruses block the system processes and launch their functions.
- Reduce the overload of startup programs
In the “Run” command box type “msconfig” and press OK. Switch to the startup tab and uncheck the unwanted programs.
- Defragment Hard Disk
How often do you defragment your hard disk? Defragmentation reduces the amount of fragmentation in your file systems and organizes your files. So the random memory spaces allocated by the file remnants will be cleared after defragmentation.
- Use a UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply)
An UPS saves your computer from crashing during power failures and voltage occurrences. It can even damage your PC’s hardware parts and lessen your computer’s speed.
- Keep an amount of free space in your C: drive
If you don’t have enough space in C: drive the Windows files will be dumped together in that drive. So it’s better to keep an amount of free space based on your operating system.
