					Tips For Fixing Problems With A
Slow Computer
By Trina L Larson

Although most people who work on a computer do so at their office, on a
computer that is provided for them by their work, many people also have a
computer that they use at their own house - and unlike their work computer, they
cannot simply get this one fixed for free or replaced completely when something
goes wrong with it; because of this, it is extremely important that you understand
what you can do to keep your personal computer from slowing down, and that
you understand what you can do to fix a computer that has started to become
more slow, as there are few things more annoying than a personal computer that
cannot keep up with the things you want to use it for.

Of course, simple age is one of the main things that can cause a computer to
slow down, as computers are more and more prone to slowing down the longer
they are around; furthermore, a lot of people think that their computer has slowed
down, when all that has really happened is that they have been using much
newer computers (perhaps at work, or at school) that are built to be a lot faster
than the older model they own, and because of this, it can seem like their
personal computer is a lot slower than it used to be!

When a computer starts to run out of memory, this will also tend to cause it to
slow down, and if you are storing a lot of music and/or photos on your computer,
this can really happen quickly; you may not realize at first that your computer has
been slowed down - especially if you rarely use your computer for much more
than typing Word documents and surfing the Internet - but as soon as you try to
use your computer for anything that requires it to work harder, you will realize just
how much slower your computer has become.

And of course, every once in a while a virus will come in and seriously destroy
the speed of your computer - and what's more, these viruses sometimes arrive
from the unlikeliest of places, where you maybe click on a link in an email from
someone you know, and this link somehow puts a virus on your computer; this is
usually the most obvious form of a "slowed down" computer, as your computer
will slow down for even simple tasks, and can of course cause some serious
frustration as a result.

Some people who suddenly find their computer to be much slower either
automatically go out and purchase a new one, or - more often, for those people
who do not have the expendable money to simply go out and buy a new
computer whenever they want - they simply deal with the frustration of having a
computer that is extremely slow, but what you may not have realized is that there
are actually a number of things you can do to speed up your computer, even
after it has slowed down significantly.

If you have been struggling with a slow computer, you should visit http://www.88-, as this site has great information on how to kick
your computer back into high gear; after you stop by http://www.88-specific- and start to learn more about speeding up your computer,
you can get back to the computer you had way back when it still worked well!.
