Clean up your PC with these tips

Maintaining Good PC Performance

Regardless of what’s causing your PC to slow down over time, there are a few best practices to keep in mind for better day-to-day performance such as:

  • Always close apps and software you’re not using.

  • Move large files to an external storage drive and/or to a cloud storage platform.

  • Regularly empty your Recycle Bin and delete software caches and unnecessary downloads.

  • Restart your computer regularly.

  • Do occasional defrags (if you have an HDD) and chkdsk scans for errors.

  • Protect your device with a reliable antivirus program.

In most cases, these simple fixes should improve your computer’s speed. Antivirus software like Norton 360 and TotalAV are well known for enhancing computer performance in addition to providing protections against cyber threats.

However, all computers and their components degrade and have to be replaced or upgraded over time. But with proper care, you can delay that and give your computer a long, happy life.
