Your new computer will most probably come with a preinstalled operating system,or at least with the setup When your brand new computer is delivered to you in pristine condition your applications load blazingly fast and run smoothly.However as you use your computer it tends to become progressively slower and applications don’t run as smoothly as they used to .To counter this there are number of little tasks that you can do to make your machine faster than it was ever before.

Restrict your startup Files
Go to Startup folder in windows and remove any applications that are unnecessary durin startup.This include download managers ,the office Start bar ,Chat clients etc.These applications take up precious resources such as memory and processing power,and are invoked when you start your PC.Therefore launch them only when you need them.

Load the latest drivers
CD’s that contain the drivers for the various hardware in your system,and while your system would work ,it wont operate to its full potential.Remember to load the latest drivers for your hardware ,especially the video card,motherboard chipset and soundcard.
