▶ Check your computer for viruses.

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when the computer starts to lag? Of course, this is the presence of all kinds of viruses, trojans, worms, so first of all you need to check your computer for malware. You can use one-time scanners, the best is Dr.Web CureIt, the link above will find where to download and how to use this antivirus scanner. Viruses are the main cause of computer lags, so I do not advise you to miss this point, but to use it first.

▶ Clean the system of debris.

If it turned out that the computer is not infected with viruses (you scanned the system before, of course), then the next reason for computer lags can be unnecessary files and any garbage in the system. Programs cleaners there is not enough, but perhaps best of all with this problem cope CCleaner.

▶ Remove unnecessary programs.

Are there many programs that you do not use? Remove them. Article, how to properly remove unnecessary programs, you will help. Remove without regretting any Yandex.Bar and Satellites@Mail.Ru, which are sometimes secretly installed when installing other programs.

▶ Clean the registry.

After cleaning the garbage, it is also necessary to clean the OS registry. After any manipulation in the system, the registry leaves all unnecessary branches, which can cause lags of the computer. To do this, you need to clean the registry, as described in the article on the link above. Warning: before editing the registry, it is recommended that you create a backup copy of it so that you can quickly restore everything from backup.

▶ Defragment the HDD.

You can read about the defragmentation of hard disk in this article, everything is described here, what it is and how to use it. If you do not do defragmentation for a long time, then the hard disk lags may appear. I just want to say that this can prolong the life of the hard drive, not the SSD, namely the hard drive (HDD), although the logs may not be so serious, this can lead to a low speed of writing / reading the hard drive.

▶ Remove programs from startup.

When you turn on the computer, many programs and utilities are automatically loaded with the operating system. It is recommended that you uninstall programs from startup that prevent the system from booting normally.

By default, in Windows, you can remove programs from startup as follows:

1. Start the context menu “Run” (Start-Run), or by using the Windows key combination “Win + R”.
2. In the dialog box enter the msconfig command, click on the OK button.
3. In the window that opens, go to the “Startup” tab.

Now only it is required to remove the tick from those programs that should not be run with Windows.

Unfortunately, this way you can not remove all programs. The easiest way to do this is with CCleaner, which gives you access to a complete list of installed programs on your computer.

▶ Disable unnecessary Windows services.

Like programs, Windows services can cause lags when they are launched a lot. Therefore, you need to disable unnecessary services.

Disable superfluous services it is possible as well as to remove programs from autoloading, only it will be necessary to pass to a tab “Services”. Now, in the same way as in the paragraph above, disable unnecessary services in vain downloading the system.

▶ Check the hard disk for errors.

The cause of the lag may be a malfunction of the computer’s hard drive. For this, it is necessary to check the HDD for errors by the utility CHKDSK, which is installed by default on the Windows operating system. Of course, you can use third-party utilities, such as MHDD or a powerful Victoria program.

▶ Clean the computer of dust.

Dust is very dangerous for computer equipment. And lag computer can because of dust, first you need to measure the temperature of the computer components – as described in this article (there you can find the optimal temperature of each component). Further, if overheating of a component is noticed, measures need to be taken. In this case, if there is overheating, you will have to clean the computer of dust, as described in this article, but here is an example of a laptop there, but I do not think there will be any problems with the system unit either. That’s all.
