How to troubleshoot my pc, Make my Pc faster


1.     Clear The Cache/Cookies:    Most computer and internet users don't know these, but anytime you use your laptop to do anything, let's say access a website, your computer, stores information about that site to its storage media and these stored items are called cache. This cache will make that particular website to load faster anytime you access it again. After clearing the cache, clear the cookies as well. Cookies are just tiny bits of information about how you visit and interact with a particular website.

The process of clearing the cache of a browser will differ, depending on the browser you are using. But as for Chrome go through the Three dots at the right-hand side of your browser then click on it, now scroll down and click on settings, then click on Privacy, then click on Clear browsing data. 
Alternatively, you can download CCleaner from here, install and crack the software by following the instructions inside the zip file, then launch the software and set to software how you want it to be handling your cache and cookie issues.

2.     Make Sure Your PC is Free From Any Malware:    Its been advised severally to be cautious of emails we open, attachments we download, or even ads we click on because these are most known way hackers and cybercriminals use to trick us into giving them access to our computers. I have written extensively about malware and how best to avoid them. There might be several articles online on how to remove malware (a simple google search will do), but I can't vouch if any of them will actually work. I always believe that preventing a problem is better than solving it. So beware of adverts you click on or email you open and attachments you download.

3.    Check For Ram Usage:    Sometimes, the slow response of laptops can also be as a result of small ram size or, there are too many apps that are running simultaneously, thereby reducing the speed of the computer. In other to fix this, open the windows task manager or Activity Monitor for Mac then look for unwanted running apps and disable them. But be careful so that you won't stop or disable the core processes and programs.

4.    Uninstall The Unwanted(s):    Removing unwanted programs will free up some space on your computer as well as some breathing space, especially if the programs comes with some running background services. To uninstall any program on your Windows PC, go to your Control Panel and click on Programs and Features, then click on programs, followed bu that particular software you wish to uninstall. However, some programs may leave behind some traces and residuals and can only be removed by manual means, so in other to perform a full install, it is recommended to use an uninstaller like iOrbit or the CCleaner you downloaded earlier. Then for Mac PC, you'll need to get a third-party uninstaller like AppCleaner.

5.     Reinstall Windows:     You Might have done all these things listed above, but the PC don't want to pick up pace, or some hardware part like the keyboard is no longer responding, then I'm sorry, but you'll need to make a fresh installation of your OS (or formatting as commonly known). But before you do that, you'll have to backup your files and documents in a secured drive. I would recommend Windows 8.1 Pro for most laptops or Windows 10 if you are OK with the regular auto updates.
