STEP 2: CLEAR TEMP FILES

 

Deleting your web cache is a good way to speed up a slow internet connection. These files take up valuable resources that could be used to for a better net surfing experience.

STEP 3: SPEED UP WEB PAGES

 

One of the biggest culprit of slow internet connections. Is your web browser's settings. When you log on to a web page, your computer is assaulted with data it needs to organize and present in an orderly manner. This information takes time to load.

By restricting your browser to display only text is the fastest option.

 

STEP 4: CONTROL YOUR ANTIVIRUS

 

A slow internet connection is often a software related problem and not the fault of your ISP. Buying more bandwidth is always going to help. Slow down is a normal result of having security software like an anitvirus on your computer. The software must constantly update it files and signatures. All this information is logged in your computer. The majority of the information is placed in your registry.

 

When your antivirus performs a scan. It produces a log. This log can be up to 100 megabytes of information each. The registry holds all this info. The addition of the info is not the major problem. Its that the information is placed in many places in your registry. This causes fragmentation of files. Your computer's operating system must search through the massive files in the registry constantly. If the registry is error-filled, fragmented, or bloated with unnecessary and duplicate files, you will have major slowdown. Organize and keep it maintained, the problem will most likely be solved. You can scan to see the condition of your registry and see what resources you can unlock resources.Click Here to SCAN your registry

 

Also you should try to see what processes are loaded when your computer starts. Often the antivirus will check your email, scan, and even update at the same time. This may be occurring everytime you start up your PC. These acts can last as long as 3 hours. They may be running silently in the background without your knowledge. Maintain them by following the directions below or by tweaking the settings in your antivirus:

 

1. Open your Start menu.

2. Click Run

3. In the command screen type msconfig.exe

4. In the system configuration utility,click either service or startup

tab5. Uncheck all programs that you dont want to load win the antivirus is starting

6. Click OK

 

TIPS FOR FIREFOX BROWSER

 

The browser is configured to load one web page or "request" a time. You can alter these settings to increase the amount of information that can flow into Firefox's pipeline.

 

1.Type “about:config” into the address bar and hit return. Scroll down and look for the following entries:

 

network.http.pipelining network.http.proxy.pipelining network.http.pipelining.maxrequests

 

2. Alter the entries as follows:

 

Set “network.http.pipelining” to “true”

 

Set “network.http.proxy.pipelining” to “true”

 

Set “network.http.pipelining.maxrequests” to some number like 30. This means it will make 30 requests at once.

 

3. Finally, right-click the black space and select "New" and choose Integer. Name it “nglayout.initialpaint.delay” and set its value to “0″. This value is the amount of time the browser waits before it acts on information it receives.

It depends really, if ones computer is over 3 or 4 years old, its just best to not worry about optimasation tools, puter might not be able to handle it.

 

As for registry cleaners, its very useful. Malware and Spyware like to hide in those places, now you don't need a cleaner per say, one can just use Malwarebytes to detect items hiding in the registry.

Defragmentation + cleaning say 200-500 registry issues= noticable performance boost.

Properly defragging and cleaning your system registry CAN and WILL definitely make a very noticeable difference to system performance. The registry is a very large and complex place, and having empty registry keys will most certainly have an adverse effect on your system. Microsoft/Windows' tools suck, and so, the built in registry tool, which Windows uses to manage it's registry, sucks as well, and fails to maintain it properly. If your registry becomes cluttered up with too many uninstalled programs, orphaned startup tasks, corrupted drivers, spyware/adware entries, file paths for files that have been moved or deleted and many, many more things, you'll begin to notice a significant decrease in speed. If you fail to keep your registry clean, you WILL certainly notice your PC suddenly crashing, more and more, as your operating system becomes unstable.

 

It's not a matter of whether or not this will happen to your PC. It's a matter of how much time, or use, it will take before it does. If you don't often install things, or you leave them installed, not moving any files around, and things like that, then you likely don't need your registry cleaned all that often. But if you're like any other average computer user, you download things at least on a bi-daily to weekly basis. Installing updates or new games or removing programs/games for extra space on your drive, copying/pasting files to different places on your drive.. all that jazz. Those people definitely should clean out their registry once in a while. Neglecting an over-cluttered, un-defragged registry will certainly make your OS slow to a crawl, and eventually, stop working or break. Regardless of how good your computer is.

Listen carefully :P, If you don't know that every time you defrag your pc there's space that's lost that you can never have back then you shouldn't defrag your pc and you are most likely defragmenting it too often. It is possible to defrag your pc until you have absolutely no space left to support system resources. If you aren't going to learn what you did to mess it up it's going to happen again and again and again and you are going to have to fix it again and again and again causing detrimental damage to your hard-drive. Computer repair isn't for everyone :P.

Semi-right.

 

The space that is lost, is something you regularly won't find back either. What basically happens is that if you remove a file, it is not really removed from the hard disk but the reference to it is removed. However, if your operation system thinks "hey, i need space", it may or may not overwrite it. If you depend on that, you're screwed anyway.

 

 

Moreover, defragmentation is actually VERY useful. The slowest thing in a current PC is the hard disk, every thing you want random access will take some nanoseconds, with hard disks you count in milliseconds, about 1000times slower than the rest of your PC. Defragmentation will only place the interesting parts closer together, such that it is not scattered over the whole disk anymore (note: for partitions, it will only place together it in the partitions itself). The random access time remains terrible, but it will increase the performance.

 

 

Last note; NEVER defragmentate solid state disks. They will remain fast, even without defragmentation, and defragmentation will only screw up the SSD. With enough time, literally.

Well if your OS will loose some space on HDD then you have always oppurtunity to format HDD to gain it back. So I don´t see how defragmantation is bad.
