I am losing my internet connection, especially when I download pc speedup programs, and they keep telling me that I have registry errors. What pc speed up should I use for my slow computer?
The real answer to your question is that none of them are the “one” to use. PC Speed Up programs, more often than not, actually end up slowing down your computer even more. They’ll tell you that you have all sorts of registry issues, driver issues and other problems, when the typical problem with slow computers is that they just have too much running (including those PC Boost programs). To truly speed up your computer, I would recommend going through your Programs List in your Control Panel and removing all the software you do not need (be careful to leave any drivers installed). Restart the computer and check to see what you have starting in your system tray next to the clock. Don’t need the program? Uninstall it. Does it need to start when Windows starts? If not, remove it from start-up. Take a look at the age of your computer as well. Most of the anti-virus software out today are not really meant to run on slower, older computers. Finding the right fit for your computer can be overwhelming. I would suggest purchasing a subscription plan through My Computer Works or a One-Time Tune-up that we offer, and have one of our technicians go through the computer with you; removing all the applications you really don’t need, going through your start-up entries, finding the right fit of protection for your computer and any other recommendation the technician will see that will help your computer perform better.
