1.Disk Cleanup- Windows has a built-in program to help eliminate unnecessary files. When you get online, your computer stores copies of web pages you visit. Various other temporary web pages are created when you are online.

This system finds them and other temporary files so that you may delete them. To use it , go to- Start-> All Programs->Accessories->system tools->disk cleanup Click on 'disk cleanup' and follow the screens. It's somewhat slow, so be patient. On the last screen you may choose which actions to take.

2. Antivirus and Spyware- Viruses are miniature programs that could harm your computer and spread to other computers on your network. Spyware is software that's downloaded to a computer by sneaky people who can then use that software to spy on your actions. There's a free download called'windows defender' in the Microsoft site which manages anti-virus and anti-spyware chores.

3. Registry Repair- Windows includes a file known as the registry' that keeps track of several things for the machine. It generates data to keep the program organized. The thing is that it can get cluttered and bog the system down.

4. Uninstalling Programs- Many people (many ) are applications junkies and are constantly installing some new app. This is one of the things which clutters the register. Sooner or later some of the programs will have to be uninstalled.
