Many of us are always looking for ways to make your PC faster, to say the least the technology isn’t keeping pace with our patience and hunger for speed.Or rather should I say, its only human to want more! Anyways here are few simple methods that you can use to speed up your Windows 7.
Disable Visual Effects
If you really want to make Windows 7 run quickly and don’t mind sacrificing more aesthetics, you can disable the visual effects. Right-click on Computer and choose Properties. Click on the Advanced system settings and click on the Settings button in the Performance area of the Advanced tab.
Turn off the Aero Theme
Even though the Aero theme is aesthetically pleasing, it is also eating up your resources with high quality background images and unnecessary transitions. To disable it, right-click on the desktop and choose Personalize. Choose one of the Basic themes, and you will immediately notice a difference.
Turn Off Unnecessary Startup Items
Unnecessary Startup Items can really slow Windows 7’s boot time down, just like they slowed down Windows XP and Windows Vista. Turn off the items that you know are not essential, and if you are confused about a Startup Item, Google it, and you will be able to find out whether or not it needs to Startup when Windows boots up.
To manage the startup items type msconfig in the search box on the Start menu and hit enter. When the System Configuration window opens, click on the Startup tab and uncheck items to disable them.
Disable User Account Control (UAC)
Even though this system is good for security, it adds an extra click to every change you make to your system. If you have good anti-virus and anti-spyware applications, and you are savvy enough to keep your PC safe while using the Internet, disabling UAC will make your life much easier.
In other words, if you are not an advanced Windows 7 user, don’t change this setting. To disable it, open Control Panel and then open the User Accounts settings. Click on Change User Account Control settings and choose Never notify. You will not receive the almost constant warnings about files you downloaded from the internet anymore.
Hope this helps. 🙂
