Why is my computer slow?

10 Things You Can Do to Speed Up A Slow Computer

"Why is my computer slow?"  

"How can I speed up computer?"  

"Why is my computer running slow?"


 Those are questions most every computer user asks eventually.


If you find your computer running slow, you may need professional help to speed up the computer -

 or you may be able to speed it up yourself with this 10 point speed up computer care checklist.   

10 Ways to Speed Up Computer

Part of the Continental Computer Services FULL SPEED Computer Care Package


  1. Try turning the computer off, wait a moment or two, and turn it back on.  Simple.  Safe.  And gives your computer the chance to get rid of some accumulated problems automatically.
  2. Clear Browsing History
  3. Check for viruses - and remove any you find.
  4. Remove malware and spyware.
  5. Check to make sure you have enough hard drive space - we recommend keeping about 10% free.
  6. Remove or turn off unused or unneeded software that may be running every time you start up the computer.
  7. Remove browser add ons that may have been added without your knowledge
  8. Keep an eye on the cache on your browser - empty as needed
  9. Make sure drivers are up to date.
  10. Run defrag to make sure data on your hard drive is in good order - important for older computers.


Issues that may be making your computer slow down:

  • problems with your  hard drive, CPU or motherboard
  • a registry issue - please do not tackle registry cleanup at home unless you are a highly experienced computer professional - many of the registry cleanup programs you can download online can cause you big computer problems
  • hardware conflicts that may be slowing you down
  • Memory - we recommend that you don't use more than 70% of your RAM on average. 

Why is my computer slow? --  that list seems overwhelming!
