I'm sure that many of you who purchased a new pc/laptop lately would have Windows 7 pre-installed onto your systems. The problem here is whether you would noticed that there are ways to speed up your Windows 7?
First and foremost, uninstall all unnecessary programmes from your systems. This is particularly useful when your computer comes with pre-installed softwares from Dell, HP, Toshiba, Acer or Sony. If you can't uninstall them, the best thing to do is to reinstall Windows 7 but do not insert the programmes dvd from your supplier (e.g. Dell) so that non essential programmes will not be installed onto your pc/laptop.
The second thing to do is actually to deal with registry edit. I know that it is difficult but I'm sure that you will be able to do it. Remember, you are doing this at your own risk!!!
You could also upgrade your memory to 4GB or even 8GB if it is possible as 64 bit OS will take anything up to 128GB of memory if your system were to support it.
Besides that, you could also ensure that you defragment your hard drive once a month and update all your drivers including your anti virus definition.
