i have an older windows computer that seems to be slower and slower. what can iI do? i am not doinganyhing different. why?
Yes there are a number of things you can do to speed up your computer. Over time more and more '"features" get added to your computer without you really being aware. These are mostly related to your browser having new add-in or extension put into the browser. You can turn these features off but then you might lose some of the functions that were added.
Ken always promotes "repaving" your Windows install, putting things back to the original install but with all relevant windows updates. This can cause some problems with applications so be sure to have a goog image backup before trying this.
Adding the new SSD electronic disk is probably the best hardware upgrade and more memory is a great inexpensive option.
Using software like Ccleaner can make this faster as well. Sometimes however you just need to consider a new more powerful computer. I just purchased a new SurfacePro and am very satisfied and am sorry I didn't do it sooner.
