How to keep your computer at top speed

Overheating Temperature
The most important components for the computer performance are the RAM memory, the CPU (processor)type and clock speed. Every application or software you install on your computer takes a bit of its resource - CPU speed and ram. So as a conclusion from this the most obvious reason why the computer is slow is that it doesn't have enough RAM or the CPU speed is not enough or you have installed too many application which have used all of the computer's resources. Another reason for a slow computer is due to a faulty hard drive or overheating problem.

When the hard drive is faulty it simply takes too long to read the files that you are trying to open or show error messages . Hard drive failure can be detected using HDD read-write diagnostic test, or if you can hear unusual clicking noise.

If the computer overheats, meaning the CPU temperature is above 70-80 degrees there is a protection sensor which reduces the computer performance to compensate the temperature or if doesn't help it will shut down to prevent any further damage.
Overheating is normally caused by a think layer of dust and some computers can be easily cleaned using compressed air or removing the bottom fan cover, but some laptops require complete dissemble which should be done by a specialist.

Computer Minimum Specification Recommendation:

Windows XP Operating System

XP operating system

3 to 5 installed applications Pentium 4 - 2.6Ghz or faster Core Duo 1.5Ghz or faster 512mb-1Gb RAM or more
more than 5 installed applications Pentium 4 - 3Ghz or faster Core Duo 1.8Ghz or faster 2-3Gb of ram or more
Windows Vista Operating System

Vista and Windows 7

3 to 5 installed applications Pentium 4 - not recommended Core Duo - 1.6Ghz or faster 1gb ram or more
More than 5 installed applications Pentium 4 - not recommended Core Duo 2Ghz or faster 2-3gb ram or more
Microsoft has done some improvement with windows 7 and it works about 50% better than vista
This is for the hardware side and for the software it is very simple: More applications you install the slower your computer will get. You might think that you can remove them later , but think twice as in most cases they don't remove completely and still take from the computer speed.

First Method Using Windows System Restore

Keep Your Computer at top speed using the “Windows System Restore”

Windows system restore automatically saves restore points on every change of the operating system. You can also specify system restore point manually to which you can come back later and anything installed after that point will be deleted which will increase the computer speed. Windows restore doesn't change or delete any of your files . I personally don’t use Windows restore as it is prone to errors and if the computer is infected with viruses they automatically infects all system restore points.

Speed up the computer using Acronis True Image

Keep your computer at top speed using Acronis True Image


The second and our favorite method is using Acronis True Image. This way is a bit more advanced and time consuming, but I don’t mind as long as I am properly prepared when disaster happens.

Acronis will save the OS into I file which I call “Master Image” because on it I have only the minimum software I need to use every day. With Acronis Universal Restore I can use this file to install on any computer and it will be an exact copy of the system I saved. Once you have done your master master image you can start playing up and installing anything you want, if you computer crashes or slows down you can always use the master image to restore it back to its original condition when it was the fastest and most stable.

There is one small problem with this method because any files added after the master image won’t be there. There is one more step to solve this problem. You can separate the hard drive and have one part only for the operating system (usually with letter “C”) and another part for all your files (on mine I put letter “D” for data). This way you have 2 independent partitions. Use letter C for backup and restore and this way anything added to D won't be affected. You can create partitions using a free software called EASEUS Partition Master.
