Reformat

but seriously... do disk cleanup and disk defragment... assuming your on Windows, you can get to these by going: Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>

delete your operating system and reload it.

you lose everything you have, but damn your computer goes faster

I don't think cleaning your hard drive out by deleting things (IE videos, music etc.) helps, but doing disk cleanup does... it cleans up stuff in the cookies/cache, etc. and I think you have more RAM available to use (?)

defragmenting assembles similar file types closer together so it's not jumping around all the time looking for info... so it helps the computer go faster.. other than that, get a new processor if you're willing to pay biiig money for speed.

Upgrade the RAM. Not hard to do, generally.
Cleaning out the harddrive helps the computer, but not too much with speed. That's all RAM.

getting rid of stuff on your harddrive doesnt make your pc go faster.

go to
1.start
2.run
3.msconfig
4. go to startup and deselect just about every program but internet explorer.

also defrag like he said.


what's that do?

if you happen to have viruses and unwanted programs then yes, if your computer is just slow, go but 1+ gb dual channel ram and a decent 80-100$ range graphics card and it should work much better.

ya, in my old comp, the 128 MB video card increased speed 10000x more than the extra 512Mb of RAM did (which shocked me but eventually made sense)

msconfig can help you choose the programs that start up when your computer starts up (system tools etc.)

hit ctrl+alt+delete... in processes is the list of everything starting up when your computer does... but don't just go deleting everything off there like someone said... only do ones you KNOW you don't need (iTunes helper, etc.)... some things are vital (explorer, without it, you really can't do... anything)

Bad idea. All of your firewalls/virus/other security stuff won't start unless you do it manually. Delete the stuff that you know is stupid and don't need EVERY time you start up (ie: aim).

Also, delete all your porn.

Get more RAM. Clear out programs you dont need from harddrive, manage programs that start up when you enter your desktop.

Depends mainly on your processor chip and how much RAM you got, I've got a cheap ass mobo with a 2.0 ghz celeron, upgraded the cooling and overclocked to 2.9 ghz. It's been running fine for about two and half years now, overclocked. 512 RAM would do for your basic applications.
