There are often multiple reasons why a computer may become slow as time passes. Regardless of what the case may be, though, there are many ways on how to make Windows faster.
If your machine is running in an extremely slow pace even with only a few programs running then you need to check the processes that are running in the background. A number of them are only used once or twice per session but look out as they continue hogging your CPU while your pc is running.
So, one of the thing you can do immediately to address this is to optimize processor time and implement a small priority tweak. What you will soon learn in this article is massively useful especially if you are experiencing stability issues. When running, your processor pays notice to system processes for uneven sums of time, depending on what they prioritize. When it comes to priorities, several background processes also possess their own. As a result, they tend to make the processor to always concentrate on them.
To resolve this sort of concern, one will need to optimize processor speed time and starve the background processes. Of course, this involves the use of the Registry Editor utility that comes with Windows. Itís important that, before you go on with the tweak, you make sure you own sufficient knowledge in using the Registry Editor and modifying entry values as improper utilization and modification of values can give rise to system problems.
Note: The following process is not a good idea for users with less than 512MB of RAM. It is also not advisable if your system is using either Internet Information Server (IIS) or SQL Server as it can make these background processes to run very, very slow.
