The best computer maintenance software - Glary Utilities
Here in this article, I will tell you how to make your slow computer work like a totally new one, by using a software called Glary Utilities. It is optimizes your computer amd makes it fast and responsive.
You love your computer when it responds immediately to your commands, multi-tasking becomes an ease and works well without any hangs or delays.
But the very moment, it stops rendering your commands or responds very late in action, you feel like dumping it and at times kicking it.
This happens to around most of the people around the globe, whether it be the dear old desktops or the new generation's ultrabooks.
How much priceless your configuration may be, whether it is running a quad-core or a six-core processor, has 4GB or 8GB of RAM, at one point or the other your system tends to slow down and worst, becomes unresponsive.
Majorly due to this, the users are affected by the slow booting, searching through the directories of a hard drive, opening more than two programs at a time, printing, surfing, delay in opening applications and in operations and even taking much time for shutting it down.
Reason behind slowing down of computer
There can be hundreds of reasons for the computer to unfriend you in this manner.
Here are a few important reasons why your computer becomes weak and is no longer fast and responsive.
1) With time, the system gets filled up with unimportant data, which are known as junk files. These files can be cookies, temp files or even invalid audio (mp3, AAC, WAV) or picture (JPEG, png) files. Sometimes old backups are unnoticed and eats up a lot of your hard disk space.
2) Along with invalid data, the computer also stores invalid registry keys, which are of no use. A software or application when installed in a computer, it stores a few keys in the registry also. When this software is removed or uninstalled, the files and folder pertaining to the software gets deleted but sometimes, leave behind those keys. These registry keys are then termed as invalid registry keys. So these should be removed and the registry also needs to be defragmented to gain speed.
3) When your computer boots, it might happen that several other applications also boot simultaneously. This slows down the booting by a big margin. There are many services which by default remain enabled even if you do not need it. For example, if the computer is not connected to a printer you can disable the 'Printer Spooler' service.
The right choice
Some experts can take care of all this but to novices and the layman, this becomes a difficult job. To save you from this, software companies around the world have launched their products only for this purpose. These softwares are generally called 'Computer utility softwares' or 'Computer optimization softwares'. You have to chose the right software which would fulfil your purpose. Among so many of them, I would recommend going for Glary Utilities.
