Here are some tips to help you optimize Windows 7 to increase productivity.
Here are some tips to help you optimize Windows 7 to increase productivity. First, you should run the troubleshooting tool that can automatically find and troubleshoot problems. This tool checks the parameters that can slow down the computer, such as the number of users logged in, and the number of simultaneously running programs. Open a performance troubleshooting tool by pressing the button. start And selecting item Control Panel . In the search field, enter Troubleshooting and select Troubleshooting . In section system and safety Select Search for productivity problems . Many PC manufacturers will create new computers with programs that were not ordered and may not want. It can be trial and time-limited programs provided by developers in the hope that users will find them useful and get full or new versions. If you do not want them to come out due to the fact that the software on the computer can slow down work, use priceless memory, disk space and computing power. It is recommended to delete all programs that you do not plan to use. Including the software installed by the manufacturer or even you yourself, which you no longer need, especially service programs for administering and configuring hardware and computer software. Service programs, such as anti-virus scanners, disk cleaning and backup software, are often run automatically when the system is started and it is imperceptible to you in the background. Many people do not know that they even work. Even if your computer is already older, it may contain programs installed by the manufacturer that you never noticed or from which you forgot. It's never too late to delete everything too much and release the resources of the system. Perhaps some kind of program you planned to use, but this did not happen. Remove it and check if your computer works faster. Many programs run automatically when booting Windows. Developers often customize the program to work in the background, imperceptibly for the user so that they opened immediately when the icon is clicked. This is useful for programs that enjoys large quantities, but for programs that you rarely or do not use, it loses useful memory and slows down the launch of Windows. Decide whether to run the program when loading the system. How to determine which programs are performed automatically at startup? Sometimes it is obvious, since the program adds an icon to the notification area on the taskbar. Check in the program notification area that you do not need to run automatically. Move the pointer to the icon to find out the program name. To show all the icons, click Display hidden icons . Some programs that automatically start when boot may not be displayed in the notification area. Autostart for Windows is a free tool that can be downloaded from the Microsoft website, which shows all programs and processes that run when Windows startup. To prohibit the automatic launch of the program when booting Windows, open the program Autoruns for windows And uncheck the checkbox next to the program name that should not be launched. The Autoruns program for Windows is designed for experienced users. Fragmentation allows the hard disk to perform additional actions that can slow down the computer. The disk defragmentation program streamls fragmented data, increasing the efficiency of the hard disk. The disk defragmentation program starts on a schedule, but you can also defragment the hard disk manually. Unnecessary hard disk files occupy a disk space and can slow down the computer. The disk cleaning program deletes temporary files, clears the basket and deletes a variety of system files and other unnecessary elements. Sometimes the change in the computer mode can significantly affect the performance of the computer. If you have all the time with eight programs, with a dozen browser windows, and at the same time there is an active messaging, - Do not be surprised that your computer works slowly. When saving a large number of email messages can also use memory. If you find that your computer will slow work, ask it if you really need to constantly open all programs and windows. Find the best way to remind yourself of answers to email messages, and not keep everything open. Make sure you use only one antivirus program. The simultaneous operation of several antivirus programs can slow down the computer. Fortunately, if you use multiple anti-virus programs, the support center notifies you and help eliminate the problem. If Windows works slowly, you can speed up the work, disconnecting some visual effects. It is necessary to choose the optimal ratio of efficiency and efficiency. What is better - quickly working or beautifully looking windows? If your computer is fast enough, you do not need to do this compromise, but if your computer is very effective for Windows 7, it can be easily scaled on visual calls and whistles. You can choose which visual effects need to be disabled, one one or allow Windows to choose. You can control 20 visual effects, such as the effect of transparent glass, open and close the menu, as well as show the shadows. To set all visual effects for maximum performance: Open the Performance Information window and click Start and select Control Panel . In the search field, enter Counters and Productivity Means , and then in the list of results, select item Counters and Productivity Means . Press the button Setting up visual effects . If you need to enter an administrator password or confirm the action, enter the password or provide confirmation. Click the tab Visual effects Select option Provide the best speed and click OK. . (So as not to disable all the effects at once, select Option Restore default values .) This advice is simple. Restart the computer is no less than once a week, especially if it is intensively used. A reboot of a computer is a good way to clear the memory and make sure that all processes and services are the configured system that started working, turn off. When restarting, all programs running on the computer are closed, and not just those you see in the taskbar, but also dozens of services that can be run by various applications, and have never been stopped. Restart can eliminate problems with the performance of Mysterious, if the exact reason is difficult to identify. If you do not want many programs, email messages and websites open, most likely you want to restart the computer. The more features you open, the higher the likelihood that your BOG PC and, ultimately, will launch not enough memory. This article does not consider the acquisition of new equipment to speed up the computer, however, in discussing ways to speed up Windows, it is impossible not to mention the possibility of expanding the RAM (RAM) of the computer. If the computer on which Windows 7 works, it seems too slow, usually it is due to the fact that there is not enough RAM on the computer. The best way to speed up the process is to add even more. Windows 7 can work on a computer with a volume of RAM 1 gigabyte (GB), but it works better with 2 GB. For optimal performance, we recommend expanding memory up to 3 GB and more. Another memory expansion option is Windows ReadyBoost. This feature allows you to use removable media, including a USB flash memory device, to speed up the computer. Insert the flash memory device into USB port is much easier than to open the computer case and insert memory modules into the motherboard. If the computer works slowly, it is possible that it is infected with viruses or spyware. This problem is less common, but it should be remembered. In order not to worry, check the computer using anti-spin and antivirus programs. A strong reducing computer performance is a common virus symptom. Other features include the emergence of unexpected pop-up messages, independent launch of programs and the sound of a constantly working hard disk. A spyware is called a program that is usually installed without your knowledge and tracks your actions on the Internet. You can check the availability of spyware with Windows Defender or other anti-spin programs. The best way to combat viruses is prevention. Always run the antivirus program and maintain its relevance. Unfortunately, infection of the computer is possible even when these precautionary measures are observed. If, after executing the recommendations, the computer still works too slowly, it may be needed to purchase a new computer or upgrade equipment, such as set a new hard disk or a faster video adapter. The speed of the computer does not need to evaluate "on the eye". Windows allows you to measure and evaluate the speed of the computer using the Windows performance index. Windows performance index evaluates the five most important components of the computer and gives a numerical estimate of each component, as well as a general assessment. The overall assessment is the minimum of estimates on individual components. In this version, a total estimate may be from 1.0 to 7.9. If the computer has been estimated less than 2 or 3, then depending on the planned tasks, you may need to purchase a new computer. If you get warnings about the shortage of virtual memory, you will need to reduce the minimum size of the paging file. Windows sets the source size of the paging file equal to the volume of the RAM of your computer, and the maximum size of the paging file corresponds to the tripled RAM. If you see warnings at these recommended levels, change the minimum and maximum dimensions. Open the "System" component and click " Start ", Right-click the item a computer and select Properties . In the left area click Additional system parameters . If you need to enter an administrator password or confirm the action, enter the password or provide confirmation. On the tab Additionally in section Performance Select Options . Open tab Additionally and then in the section Virtual memory Press the button Change . Uncheck the checkbox Automatically control the size of the paging file for all disks . In the list Disk [Tom Tag] Select a disk containing the paging file, the size of which you want to change. Select Switch Specify size Enter in the field Source size (MB) or Maximum size (MB) New size in megabytes, click the "Install" button, and then - OK. . Note: As a rule, after increasing the paging file, the restart is not required. However, in the event of a decrease in the size of the paging file, restart the computer to change the changes to take effect. We recommend not to disconnect and not delete the paging file.

Note: As a rule, after increasing the paging file, the restart is not required. However, in the event of a decrease in the size of the paging file, restart the computer to change the changes to take effect. We recommend not to disconnect and not delete the paging file.
Disabling visual system effects
To optimize the work of the laptop and speed up the loading of Windows 7, you should first turn off the visual effects, the absence of which will not affect the system. To do this, go to "My Computer" and select "System Properties" or simply press the combination of hot keys "Windows + Pause / Break".
Next, on the left menu, click on "Advanced System Parameters".
Click on the "Parameters" button in the "Speed" section.
We put a tick "Provide the best speed"
Or you can choose "Special Effects" and note those ticks that you see in the figure. Since these functions make the system more comfortable.
Click "Apply" and "OK".
note : All these features take part of the RAM, which becomes noticeable on weak PCs or laptops. This is especially related to animated controls.
Remove the desktop widgets
Calendar, Hasiki, Weather forecast look beautiful, but they slow down the system using RAM resources. Therefore, to improve the performance of the system, in the case when the amount of memory is limited and the computer is loaded for a long time when it is turned on, it is better to disable them. To do this, right-click on the appropriate widget and choose "close the gadget". Or click on the cross at the top on the right.
Optimize disk space
The speed of the system largely depends on the state of the hard disk, namely the presence of a free space on its system section "C". The fact is that any files recorded on it, for the rational use of disk space, are divided into fragments, which, as a rule, are not written in consistently, but to different sections. It is still customary to be called fragmentation. Therefore, when reading data, the computer has to spend a certain time on their reading. The effect of fragmentation is higher, the slower reading speed with all the ensuing consequences.
Based on this, it is necessary to periodically conduct a hard disk defragmentation procedure. It allows not only to increase the speed of the PC, but also to free up the space on its disk system.
Control the launch of applications
The more programs stand in autoload, the longer your computer will turn on. In addition, a large number of programs running in the background, load the computer's operational memory. And, as is known, the free volume of RAM directly affects the speed of the system in general.
Therefore, to optimize the PC work, track which programs are loaded along with the operating system and timely exclude unnecessary from the startup. How it is done in Windows 7 described in detail in this article.
We use the full potential of the processor
Since today is mainly used multi-core processors, then if possible, it is necessary to use their full power. To try to use all the processor cores, you must open the system configuration section. This is done using the "MSCONFIG" command and the Command Interpreter "Run".
We open and go to the "Load" tab.
After clicking on the "Advanced Parameters" button. If you have a multi-core processor (2 and more), and only one kernel is used to start the system, then everything should be used to optimize and increase the speed of operation. To do this, check the chamber opposite the "Processor Number" and select Maximum value. Click on "OK", then "apply". After that, I will also need a reboot.
The "System Configuration" panel allows you to disable unnecessary services. To do this, open the appropriate tab.
Next, remove the ticks near the names of those services that, in your opinion, affect productivity. However, it is extremely recommended to disable those manufacturer - Microsoft Corporation, and therefore you can even check the box "Do not display Microsoft services".
Now you can turn off at least everything in a row, but remember that they are needed for stable operation of the relevant programs. After all changes, click "Apply" and "OK", restart the computer.
Verification of RAM
As already mentioned RAM is very important for optimal operation of the system. Therefore, it will not be superfluous to carry out its diagnosis, while it is performed by standard means. To do this, open the "Start" menu and enter the "Diagnostics of Computer RAM" diagnostics.
A window will appear, where we choose the first option:
After that, the computer will reboot and check the RAM. Since this is a long enough procedure, we advise it to perform when the main tasks you have already completed. If everything is in order, the system will boot as usual.
note : During the scan, you should not press any keys.
We use power regimens
And although this is not the most important advice, no wonder we mention it the last, it can partly help. However, it is not necessary to perform laptop owners with a working battery. If you use a fixed computer or a laptop from the network, then this method will suit you.
- If you have a laptop, then click on the battery icon at the bottom and select "Advanced Power Settings". For stationary computer owners, instructions on how to get into the power settings section is here.
- Choose "High Performance".
One of the most convenient and most popular programs with which Windows 7 optimization and registry cleansing are executed. The main features:
- Deleting temporary files: event logs, cache (including browser), shortcuts, empty folders, recent documents, etc.
- Checking the registry and troubleshooting: incorrect extensions of files missing DLL, etc.
- Deleting programs, setting up the startup.
- Search for files and erase discs.
The program interface is understandable immediately: on the left - the main menu, and in the center - information about the progress of analysis and cleaning system
Click on the "Analysis" button. The program will start looking for files to be deleted. Before that, in the left menu, you can choose which components of the system from the installed applications need to be cleaned, and which is not. After the analysis, a message will appear that you can free up so much memory:
Click "Cleaning" and confirm the choice. Note that if the number of "garbage" is large enough, then it will be removed long.
The registry is checked in the same way, for which you need to select the same tab in the menu on the left, click "Search for problems" and then "fix".
In the "Service" tab, we are most interested in the "Auto-loading" item. To disable the automatic launch of the non-needed program, select its name and click "Turn off".
It is a more functional and complex utility, but it still needs to be installed to each PC owner. She also scans the system for not the necessary files, checks the registry, speeds up the system load, but it has thin settings that are missing in CCleaner. For example, here you can edit the registry manually, perform its defragmentation and compression, to carry out thin system settings, etc.
When starting the program, the express check of the disk and the registry will be launched. After its completion, detailed information will appear when the last time checking for a particular fragment and how much space can be released.
When you click on "Cleaning the disks", scanning will begin, as a result of which you can clean the PC from the non-necessary files. As a rule, in such a way, up to 500 MB of free space is released, sometimes more if you regularly put third-party applications and have not done the cleaning for a long time.
The "Registry Cleaning" item is required to correct the wrong entries, troubleshooting problems and errors.
Pay attention to the second tab "Registry Optimization". This procedure also needs to be performed to increase productivity. However, then it will be necessary to restart the system, which will certainly be notified.
note : In the same program, you can configure autorun and completely delete programs.
The two programs described only a small part of what is available today to users to optimize their systems. All of them to describe in the framework of the same article there is no possibility.
Tell me why my Windows 7 is running normally, everything opens and boots. After 2-3 weeks, it seems to be replaced: the computer starts loading for a long time, the conductor reluctantly reacts, all work somehow slowly goes.
Is it possible to optimize and speed up the system, without its systematic reinstallation, so that it quickly worked, as after reinstalling the system?
Pretty typical behavior of Windows, and, by itself, the seven here is not to blame, the same would be, for example, with a dozen ...
The fact is that over time in Windows accumulates a large number of "garbage" (temporary files, cache, etc.), new programs prescribe themselves in autoload, all sorts of gadgets appear, etc. - all starts "there is" RAM, download the processor , Disk subsystem, which ultimately affects performance.
In this article, I will give some of the most important recommendations to optimize and speed up the system. (By the way, options with upgrades, for example, in the form of a purchase of additional races of RAM or SSD disk, I do not consider the article) .

9 steps to eliminate brakes and speeding Windows 7
Description of the problem:
As already said above, with time, as programs are installed, some of them prescribes itself in Windows startup and starts each time the computer is turned on. All would be nothing, but some of these programs are sufficiently demanding to resources and affects the boot rates of the PC, sometimes significantly.
I want to pay special attention to UTorrent. If you have a lot of torrents and the program is in autoload, Windows can be downloaded on Tens of seconds longer!
Logical and simple - you need to open the settings of the startup and remove it all too much and not needed. In general, in my opinion, in the autoload you need only those programs that you use absolutely Each time the computer is turned on.
To view the startup in Windows 7 - Press the key combination Win + R. , then enter the command msconfig And press ENTER (example below).
System Configuration - MSCONFIG
Next, open the tab "Autoload" And remove the ticks opposite those applications that you do not need to constantly work.
System Configuration - Autoload
By the way, check the Windows startup and delete unnecessary programs from the computer, special utilities can help. One of these is CCleaner (an example on the screenshot below). Pretty convenient: To view a list of autoloads in CCleaner, just open the menu "Service / Startup" .

Windows cleaners (including autoloading).
CCleaner: Service - Autoload
Services: what can be turned off
Description of the problem:
By default, Windows includes sufficiently many services that take up the RAM and one way or another affect performance. (I must note that the disconnection of "superfluous" services is particularly noticeable on low-power PCs with a small number of RAM) .
For example, if you do not have fax - Why do you need this working service, or Print Manager - If there is no printer?
Optimization in this step is to disable those services that are not needed on your PC. To disable some service, you must open their list. To do this, press the key combination Win + R. Enter Services.msc. , click OK. .
How to open a list of services in Windows 7 // Services.msc
Next, select any SERVICE: its description appears on the left. To disable the service - open it double-clicking the left mouse button (in your example I chose Update centre ).
Then in the "Startup Type" column, put the option "disabled", and then click the "Stop" button. Thus, you will stop the service, and it will not be launched more.
How to stop and disable service
Do not disconnect everything in a row, some of them are needed for normal operation of the system. In any case, before making changes - read the description of the service, is the meaning understandable. In general, create a checkpoint (backup) - if suddenly what, calmly roll back ...
What services "can" disable in Windows 7:
- Windows CardSpace;
- Windows Search;
- Offline files;
- Network Access Protection Agent;
- Adaptive brightness adjustment;
- Windows archiving;
- IP Support Service;
- Secondary entry into the system;
- Grouping network participants;
- Dispatcher Automatic Remote Access Connections;
- Remote Access Connection Manager (if there is no VPN);
- Network Participants Manager;
- Magazines and performance alerts;
- Secure storage;
- Setting up a remote desktop server;
- Smart card removal policy;
- Listener of the home group;
- Windows Event Collector;
- Network entry into the system;
- Tablet PC input service;
- Windows Loading Service (WIA) (if there is no scanner or fotic);
- Windows Media Center Scheduler Service;
- Smart card;
- Node of the diagnostic system;
- Node of the diagnostic service;
- Fax machine;
- Host a performance counter library;
- Security center;
- Windows Update Center (I recommend to disconnect. And the update is carried out in manual version, because in auto-mode often this service creates a high load, due to which the PC slows down).
Cleaning garbage from the system
Description of the problem:
How carefully did not use your Windows, it's all the same, with time, a large amount of garbage accumulates in it: old tails in the registry from long-remote programs, temporary files remaining when installing some software, browser cache, etc. All these files, as accumulated, begin to affect the performance of the system as a whole.
Sometimes, the user has such a "garbage" accumulates for several tens of gigabytes!
A couple of times a month it is recommended to clean your Windows from such a garbage. It is possible to do this, both using a standard cluster in Windows and with third-party utilities (I recommend the second option).
To not repeat here and do not paint, like that, I recommend that you familiarize yourself with my instruction (link is slightly lower).

Unnecessary visual effects
Description of the problem:
Windows 7, compared to Windows XP, has become more beautiful: effects, shadows, Aero, etc. But all this affects the performance of the computer (very noticeable on weak machines).
To the same problem can be attributed Gadgets (Small windows on the desktop, which can inform you about the weather, currency rate, etc.). They appeared just in Windows 7 - and everyone became actively using them. Meanwhile, they are rather demanding to the system ...
Regarding gadgets - They are enough to close, and they will disappear from the desktop (no longer consume your resources). The same weather and currency exchange rate are also convenient to recognize in the browser ...
As for visual effects - To configure them, open the Windows Control Panel at:
Control Panel \ System and Security \ System
Next on the left press the link "Advanced system parameters" .
Additional system parameters
In the Advanced tab, open the speed parameters (see screen below).
In the tab "Visual effects" Remove the checkmarks from those effects that you do not need. To maximize the acceleration of the system - put the slider to the "Provide Best Speed" position. Next, save the settings.
Provide the best speed
The appearance can be somewhat spoiled, but the system will become much more responsive.
Drivers: whether everything is fine with them
Description of the problem:
Driver - Drive Return! Very much depends on the driver version. For example, those drivers that are installed in the system together with Windows are far from always work optimally (for example, a network card can not work on all its capabilities (at low speed), the driver on the video card cannot be configured at all, etc.).
In addition, you can not be installed in the system at all drivers to part of the equipment (as in the screenshot below). By the way, to look at what equipment does not drive - open device Manager (keyboard shortcut Win + R. , then enter the command Devmgmt.msc. ).
There are no drivers to: a video card, a network controller, an Ethernet controller, etc.
- Best option: download drivers from the manufacturer of your computer / laptop. You can also use a disk with drivers, which went with a PC when purchased (if preserved 👌). If you do not know your equipment, you can use utilities to determine the characteristics of the PC.
- You can use the programs to automatically update drivers. My site is dedicated to them several articles, one of the links in front of you ...
- If possible: I recommend checking several versions of the drivers (especially on the video card). It often happens that the older driver works better than new.
Description of the problem:
This problem is characteristic of laptops, netbooks, etc. Compact gadgets running from the battery.
The fact is that there are several modes of operation: economical (when to the detriment of performance, the laptop saves energy for longer operation from the battery), normal, and high performance.
And by default, most often the usual (balanced), or economical ...
First, I recommend to open the Control Panel at:
Control Panel \ Equipment and Sound \ Power
Next you should see several power plans. Put a balanced mode or high performance mode.
Selection of the Power Plan // Windows 7
For a detailed setting of the power supply: First, click the "Setting the Power Plan" (opposite the selected power mode), then open the "Edit Ext. Power Parameters" link. Next, you can disclose the necessary tabs and configure each parameter separately.
For example, you often need to configure the hard disk operation (prohibit it to stop), or adjust the monitor brightness (remove the adaptability), etc.
Detailed setup of power supply
In addition, the power supply parameters can be set in special utilities. For example, these are found on Sony laptops, Acer, Lenovo, etc.
As a rule, you can open their settings through an assistant in the tray, next to the clock (screen below). If there is no such thing in the tray - check the Windows control panel.
Power Manager in Lenovo Laptop
Description of the problem:
By default, Windows 7 includes indexing the contents of files for faster search (for example, enter some phrase from the text file, and Windows finds it on the disk. Convenient!).
But I noticed that 10% of users are used by this feature. So if it does not need it, but eats decent disk subsystem resources, maybe it should be turned off?
To do this, go to My Computer, select the disk and open its properties.
Next, in the General tab, remove the checkbox with "Allow index the contents of files on this disk in addition to the file properties." Click OK, now the indexation must be disabled.
Disk defragment (speech only about HDD)
Description of the problem:
Defragmentation - This is the process of redistributing files on the disk so that they are located in continuous areas (so that them from the disk can be read faster).
What makes defragmentation - a visual representation
If you do regularly defragmenting the hard disk (HDD) - then the read speed and file entry will be slightly higher (especially, FAT 32 file system is subject to fragmentation. You can learn more about defragmentation on Wikipedia.
- Run the built-in disk defragmentator in Windows 7. To do this, it is enough to open "My Computer", open Properties The desired disk. Then open the "Service" tab and click the "Perform defragmentation ..." button. Next, the system will analyze the disk on the need for its defragmentation.
- An even better option is to establish a special utility for defragmentation. You can learn about them in one of my previous articles.
Is it necessary to turn off the PC if there is sleep mode
Description of the problem:
Many users for some reason do not use sleep mode, hibernation, etc. Computer transformation varieties / laptop in low power mode. Turn off the computer completely even when they are going to turn it on again in an hour or another ...
Meanwhile, sleep mode allows you to quickly restore your work, literally in 1-2 seconds. Thanks to which, you can save a time tool.
It is enough to press the Start button, then select from the option of completing the work "Sleep" (as on the screen below). If you do not have this option - most likely the problem with the drivers (wrote about it above).
Translation of computer to sleep mode
Note : in settings Power Supplies In the Windows control panel, you can configure how time to translate the computer to sleep mode (example below).
Setting the power plan
By the way, I recommend to familiarize yourself with the article in which I disassembled the reasons because of which the computer brakes in various situations ...
Here are such modest tips to help make your Windows 7 faster and responsive (checked more than once on their PCs 👌).
All the best!

- Video installation Excellent software to start creating their own videos (all actions go down the steps!). Video will make even newcomer!
- Computer accelerator The program for cleaning Windows from garbage (speeds up the system, deletes the garbage, optimizes the registry).
Over time, the boot rate of the PC is reduced. This is caused by a deterioration in system performance and other negative factors. Owners of computers and laptops are interested in how to speed up the work of Windows 7 without the help of a specialist.
Accelerate the operation of the operating system is perhaps independently without resorting to the help of specialists.
Why does the performance of windows 7 fall?
The work "Windows 7" is violated due to the illiterate operation of the PC, which leads to the overload of the hard disk and the absence of a free place in memory.
Also, problems may occur if the future user has not changed the original system settings, which are often not quite optimal when purchasing a computer.
In the internal memory of the PC, many programs are gradually accumulated, which are run automatically for each OS booting. Because of these utilities, the speed of turning on the computer slows down, the system overload occurs.
Hardware errors are associated with:
- incorrect withdrawal of files from the DirectX packet;
- the presence of a video card with outdated drivers;
- The lack of regular OS update.
In order to speed up the download of Windows and improve the performance, part of the functions performed by the processor can be transferred to the hardware devices.
Some of the tasks of the central processor can perform a video card if it is proper.
Checking the work of the video card
First you need to determine the type of video card installed on the PC. It may be nvidia or Intel. On the control panel, you need to open the NVIDIA control panel or "screen" tab, then go to the "Three-dimensional graph" settings section and set the maximum graphics card performance. The quality of the device can be judged by how it reacts to the inclusion of complex graphic games. Low power card will be tangible to heat up, while the computer itself can reboot during the game.
Update video card drivers
In order to speed up the video card, you can update its drivers. The graphics card manufacturer regularly set up updates for it on the company's official website.
You can check the availability of updates by clicking on the appropriate link in the video card settings on the computer.
Turn on acceleration
In devices with Windows 7, the hardware acceleration feature is enabled by default. It manages the use of graphic display devices. It is permissible to adjust the function manually.
You can check its presence by right-click on the desktop screen and opening the screen "Screen Resolution".
Here you need to go to "additional parameters".
If the "Change parameters" button is blocked, then the hardware acceleration was previously defined by the developer.
In the "Diagnostics of the Monitor Adapter" section you need to move the slider to the "Full" mark.
To confirm the action, press the OK button in all windows.
Operating system acceleration
To speed up OS operation, it is recommended to delete all unnecessary files from the computer. On a PC with initially weak software, changes will be more noticeable than on new generation devices.
Delete unused software
Advanced files occupying in the internal memory of the PC reduce the speed of the system.
Many of them are divided into separate fragments, and in the future the OS has to merge them again to open a particular program, which leads to the overload of the hard disk.
To remove unnecessary files from PC, you need to open the control panel and go to the "Delete Program" section. From the opening list you can select any irrelevant program, right-click on it, click "Delete" and confirm the action.
Disabling unnecessary Windows 7 services
In the "seven" there are many default services, and not all of them are needed to the user. In order to find extra, you need to open the "Start" menu and enter the word "service" in the search string. A list of all services operating on PCs with a detailed description of each of them will open. If you do not use features such as "fax", "parental control", etc., they can be disabled. When you disable any service, you need to determine which programs are connected with it. You can do this by studying the section "Dependencies". All disconnected services can be activated again.
System Services Table that can be disabled
Some services do not affect the operation of the OS. You can familiarize yourself with them in the table below.
|Bluetooth support service||Allows you to exchange data using wireless communication. If the service is not used, it can be turned off|
|Windows archiving||Creates backups OS. It can be replaced by other programs if necessary.|
|Windows Update Center||Establishes updates to some programs that sometimes turn out to be unnecessary|
|Remote Desktop Services||Provides remote access to the system from different devices|
|Seat queue manager||In the absence of a printer and scanner, this service is invested|
|Windows Search.||Provides internal search|
|Public Group Supplier||The function is irrelevant if the home network is missing|
Removing unnecessary programs from autoloading
To begin, it is necessary to call the configuration menu by simultaneously pressing the Win and R keys. Next, in the list of the string, we enter the msconfig symbol and click OK. In the next window, you should select subparagraph "autoload" and remove the checkboxes opposite those services that are not used. Finally, click OK and restart the computer.
Restriction of the number of simultaneously working programs
A large number of tabs opened in the browser at the same time creates an excess load, slowing the operation of the computer. You can change the situation by limiting the number of open windows at the same time during Internet surfing.
You should also delete programs that perform the same functions. So, only 1 antivirus can be installed on the PC.
Turning off visual effects
Some visual effects have negatively affect the speed of the system, and to disable them, it is advisable to disable them. To do this, go to the "Computer" menu, open the "Properties" tab and select "Advanced Parameters". A new window will appear. In addition, you need to click on the "Parameters" button located the "Speed" section.
In the "Visual Effects" section, it is recommended to install a tick next to the "Provide Best Speed" item. To confirm the action, click on the "Apply" button.
After a complete shutdown of visual effects, the appearance of windows can deteriorate greatly. To avoid this, you can leave some sub-items with the effects without change, removing the checkboxes next to them and clicking OK.
Setting up system sounds
To control system sounds, you should call the context menu by pressing the Windows and R keys, enter the MMSYS.CPL command to the search string and confirm the action by clicking OK. A new window will appear, in which you want to go to the "Sounds" section and instead of the "Default" value, select the "no sound" mode. Upon completion, click OK. In order to confirm the changes made, you need to restart the computer.
Optimization of hard disk operation
On the hard disk, unnecessary files are gradually accumulated on the parts. To improve the disk, it is necessary to optimize it.
Accelerate copying and moving files
The system automatically determines the difference in the amount of individual downloaded files, performing the compression of those that occupy more space than others.
Many resources at the same time goes to calculation, which leads to the rolling of the PC.
To disable the option, you need to open the control panel and go to the "Programs and Components" section. Here you should select subparagraph "Enabling and disable Windows components" and remove the tick next to the "Remote Different Compression" string.
Defragmentation of the hard disk
For defragmentation, you must right-click on the disk and select "Properties" in the drop-down menu. In the "Service" tab, click on the "Perform Defragmentation" button and wait for the end of the process. This procedure can be carried out with all available disks.
Opening the "Computer" menu, you need to go to the "properties" of the local disk C. After that, only you will only click on the "Clearing Disk" button in the General tab. Next, you should mark all unnecessary files on the disk and confirm their deletion. Finally, you need to remove the mark from the "Allow indexing the contents of the files on this disk" and confirm all the actions by clicking OK.
At first, go to the Start menu, right-click on the "Computer" item and select "Properties" in the drop-down menu. The window that opens appears all the necessary information, including the amount of RAM PC. On the left side of the window you need to select "Advanced system parameters", and then in the "Speed" section, click the "Parameters" button.
In the "Virtual Memory" section, the "Advanced" tabs should be clicked on the "Change" button, and then remove the checkbox next to the "Automatically choosing the scurry file" item and set the desired file size in the M-BIT. The size of the pumping file should be larger than the amount of RAM at least 1.5 times. The pumping file can be attached to any disk.
Check for viruses
Viruses and other malicious files slow down the system.
Antivirus programs will help to get rid of them:
- Dr. Web Cureit;
After installing the antivirus on the computer, you must immediately start scanning.
First you need to open the BIOS on the computer, view the list of connected devices and set the hard disk to the first place.
This installation is available in all versions of Windows, except XP. The option helps to increase the speed of the PC using an external flash drive.
You need to connect a pre-formatted flash drive to a computer, then in the "Computer" menu, right-click on the removable disk and select the item "Properties".
In the pop-up window, you need to open the READYBOOST tab and click on the "Use this device" line.
The drive used is not retrieved.
In this mode of operation, the flash drive can quickly fail, so you should select more reliable models.
Other optimization methods
Optimization implies cleaning from all temporary files, unloading RAM.
It helps to stop all the background programs that slow down the processor.
You should periodically restart the computer to clear the RAM and confirm the changes made to the system. It must be done at least once a week.
Windows 7 update
Updates help Clear OS from accumulated errors. You can update Windows, re-downloaded and installing the software package or using the recovery control point.
Configuring Process Priorities
In order to speed up the execution of important tasks on the PC, it is necessary to establish priority for them. In the Task Manager, you must go to the "Processes" section, select the desired process from the list and click on it with the right mouse button.
Here you need to set the value of the "high" priority and confirm the action. In the context menu, select the "Set compliance" subparagraph and select the number of current processors involved in one or another process.
Accelerate download by connecting all processors
OS loading can be accelerated by using all processors. To do this, you need to open the system configuration window by pressing the Win + R buttons simultaneously and then entering the word msconfig. In the window that appears, select the Loading tab, and in it - "Advanced Download Options". In an additional window, you must set the maximum possible number of processors. With the subsequent inclusion of the PC will be loaded faster.
Third-party Runs Cleaning Programs, virus removal and other
Special programs are used to eliminate registry errors, get rid of parasite program and optimize the amount of RAM.
This software is used to delete temporary files created by the system, cleaning and disk defragmentation. Some tools are designed to change the autoload menu, detect unnecessary files, uninstall applications.
A free utility works with restrictions, but even this functional is enough to speed up the operation of the OS. The application reveals vulnerability, cleans the hard disk and RAM, frees the registry.
This program does not need a preliminary installation. It determines the presence of unnecessary applications installed by the OS developers. The utility is equipped with a regularly updated base that helps to detect and neutralize parasite programs. Found unwanted software is recommended immediately removed.
The question how to speed up the computer is interested in a huge number of users, and interest in it does not fade. It is possible to affect the speed of the computer using the operating system optimization. Most functions and capabilities of modern operating systems remain unclaimed from ordinary users. Many after reinstalling the OS do not contribute any changes to the configuration and are content with standard settings that are not the most optimal.
We will analyze all the most relevant optimization methods for Windows 7 to enhance computer performance. If you follow our recommendations, probably notice that the computer began to work much faster.
Setting up visual effects
Problem. Windows operating systems have not only convenient, but also a beautiful interface. This in turn imposes quite serious requirements for the computer hardware. With all the abundance of interesting visual effects, iron should provide smooth operation and the maximum possible speed. If the computer is not the most powerful, then the drop in performance is provided. This problem is especially relevant for owners of low-power laptops and netbooks whose manufacturers first of all set themselves the goal of increasing energy efficiency and reduce costs.
Decision. To solve this problem, it is recommended to disable almost all visual effects and leave only basic. In this case, productivity increases you guaranteed. Optimization of Windows 7 in terms of visual effects is fairly simple. Go to the "Start" menu and enter "Visual Effects" in the search string. Click on the "Configuration and System Performance" section.
For convenient configuration, we put the selector opposite the "Provide Best Speed" item, and absolutely all flags are removed. After that, check the following points checkboxes:
- Enable Desktop Composition
- Using windows display styles and buttons
- Display sketches instead of icons
- Smooth out the irregularity of screen fonts
Click "Apply" and reboot the computer.
Optimization of hard disk in windows 7
Problem. All files recorded on the hard disk are divided into fragments using a special algorithm. It is done for the most rational use of the remaining disk space. As a result, when the computer tries to read the file, it collects a huge number of separate fragments scattered throughout the rigid disk. It aggravates this process, the presence of tens of thousands of fragments of unnecessary files. This in turn can lead to a decrease in the performance of the hard drive and the system as a whole.
Decision. The only effective way out of the problem is a regular cleaning from garbage files and a hard disk defragment. First spend the revision of unnecessary information on your computer. Remove the boning films (which the word is quite a large amount of memory), music and other files that have already lost relevance for you. Then remove the programs that you do not use. To do this, go to the "Start" menu -> "Control Panel" -> "Delete Program". We carry out the audit of outdated applications and get rid of them using the "Delete" button.
After cleaning from the garbage, go to defragmentation. To do this, go to "My Computer", right-click on the desired disk and select the item "Properties" -> "Service" -> "Perform defragmentation". Select the disk and press the "Disk Defragmentation" button.
Optimization of the hard disk actually helps you speed up the computer. A particularly noticeable effect will be on those computers where this procedure has not been conducted for a long time. Recall that defragmentation is desirable to be carried out regularly to maintain the optimal operation of the hard drive.
Autostat Optimization in Windows 7
Problem. Even in powerful and expensive computers, a decrease in the operating system loading speed is noticed over time. And in most cases, the culprit is a huge number of programs that are simultaneously launched along with the operating system. Update managers of various applications, social networking agents, all kinds of messengers, antivirus are added to the startup. The latter, by the way, is better from the startup, do not remove, because ideally the antivirus program must constantly protect the computer in real time. All other "unexpected guests" will be turned off.
Decision. For simple and efficient removal of unnecessary programs from autoloading, it is recommended to use the CCleaner program. Its main specialty is to clean the registry (talk on this further), but also with the optimization of the startup, it copes on perfectly by the user with a convenient and intuitive interface.
Run the program, go to the Tools tab -> "Auto load" and using the "Off" button, remove all the programs that you do not need from automatic launch.
Diagnostics of RAM and registry
Problem. It is believed that the registry may adversely affect the speed of the computer, as well as the problemary memory. With the registry everything is clear. In case of incomplete removal of the installed applications, it remains "trash" (applications, references to non-existent shortcuts, incorrect file extensions). Over time, garbage is becoming more and more. And if we want to speed up the computer, then the garbage needs to be removed.
With the operational memory, everything is somewhat more complicated. This is a very important component of the computer and talk about the optimal operation of the system without adequate operation of RAM simply not to. The reason for the appearance of failures in RAM can be marriage in production, malfunction in the power supply and even voltage drops. In any case, Windows 7 optimization is mandatory implies the diagnostics of RAM.
Decision. Clean the registry can be cleared with the previously mentioned CCleaner program. RAM diagnostics can be carried out by means of the operating system. To do this, open the Start menu and enter the "Diagnostics of Computer RAM" diagnostics.
A window should appear in which you want to select the type of check (it is recommended to select the first option).
After rebooting the computer, memory check will begin. It can take a long period of time, so during the diagnostic period do not plan any urgent tasks associated with the computer. When checking on the screen, you will see about the following window:
The end of the diagnostics will be accompanied by a reboot of the computer. The next time you enter the system, you can read the results of the inspection. Windows 7 optimization must necessarily include the registry and RAM.
Windows 7 optimization for multi-core processors
Problem. Many users have computers are equipped with multi-core processors (with nuclei from 2 or more). A larger number of cores in the processor should have a positive effect on the speed of the computer. Although the operating system itself automatically checks the type and characteristics of the installed processor quite often when only one kernel is used when the computer starts. Naturally in this case, the speed of the operating system is reduced.
Decision. The solution to this problem is very simple. The user may forcefully specify the system of the need for loading using the power of all processor cores. To do this, go to "Start" -> "All Programs" -> "Standard" -> "Perform". Enter the command "msconfig" and click "OK".
In the system configuration window that appears, go to the "Load" tab -> "Advanced parameters ...". We put the checkbox opposite the "number of processors" and select the maximum number. Click "OK".
If you do not know how to speed up the computer, or rather how to influence the speed of the operating system, this method is perfect.
Removal of unnecessary gadgets
Problem. Standard and additional gadgets used in Windows 7 are undoubtedly very comfortable and useful. Many users are happy to use them in everyday life to facilitate access to interesting information. On the other hand, the gadgets can directly affect the speed of the computer, naturally in a negative plan. Such gadgets will spend your system resources. On a powerful modern car, this may not be noticeable, but on weaker computers a drop in performance will be tangible.
Decision. Optimization of Windows 7 in terms of gadgets does not imply their complete removal. Leave the 1-2 most frequently used and useful gadgets, and remove the rest. All the same, with a high probability, it can be argued that you will receive most of the interesting information on the Internet. Why then immediately load your system.
Optimization of Windows 7 with ReadyBoost
Problem. The Windows 7 operating system can use high-speed flash memory devices to efficiently caching the data of the most commonly launched applications. In fact, USB flash drive memory or SD card can be used instead of paging file. Such a tricky manipulation makes it possible to speed up the read-write procedure, which ultimately will have a positive effect on the speed of the computer and the overall performance of the system.
Not all users of Windows 7 can increase the amount of RAM to the standard way (buying a new bar). Most different reasons may prevent this. These are the restrictions that the manufacturer of the chipset or motherboard on their products, and the impossibility of buying the RAM of the appropriate format.
Decision. To extend the computer's RAM, you can use standard USB USB flash drives and Flash Card SDHC / SD / MS. To use the flash card you will need a special card reader, which will be compatible with the map format. ReadyBoost technology is initially built into the operating system, so you do not have to download and install additional software.
Minimum requirements for drives when used in ReadyBoost:
- Support for USB 2.0 / 3.0
- Minimum read speed 2.5 MB / s for information blocks 4 kb
- Minimum recording speed of 1.75 MB / s for information blocks 512 KB
- Minimum amount of free space 64 MB
Before choosing a drive for ReadyBoost, be sure to specify its speed characteristics and make sure that they meet the requirements. The use of high-speed flash cards will provide maximum performance gain.
We go to "My Computer", click the right mouse button on the outer medium and click "Properties". Go to the "ReadyBoost" masonry. Install the selector opposite the item "Use this device" and, using the slider, specify the limit of the memory used. Next, click "Apply" and "OK". If you want to provide a system access to all free external media memory, you set the selector in front of the "Provide this device for READYBOOST technology".
Use this cunning way. We hope he will help you answer the question how to speed up the computer.
Power Optimization in Windows 7
Problem. Very often, when working on a computer, users forget to configure the power management scheme - a set of hardware and system parameters that are responsible for the power consumption of individual system components. The power management scheme can be configured to maximize energy savings (respectively, on minimal performance), on balanced energy consumption or to increase computer performance (maximum power consumption). You can simply forget about this simple parameter and at the same time adversely affect the speed of the system.
This problem is relevant for laptop owners. By default, the system sets a balanced power supply. When the laptop battery sits down, the energy saving mode is automatically installed. Later, when the laptop connects to the network, few people remember about the economical mode and the need to switch it. So on simple things is lost the speed of the computer.
If you use a personal computer or laptop (but it works from the network), the setting of the power scheme can speed up the computer and improve the overall system performance.
Decision. The solution is to control the power regimen. We go to the "Start" -> "Control Panel" -> "Power Supplies" and select "High performance" mode.
If you wish, you can configure the power plan. To do this, select "Setting the Power Plan" -> "Change additional power parameters". Install your values at will.
We dismantled 8 ways to optimize Windows 7, which will help to increase the speed of the computer. It is very difficult to accommodate all ways to optimize in one article, therefore it is only the first part of the material. In further articles, we will continue to disassemble interesting and efficient ways of optimization, since this topic is quite extensive and interesting.
Over time, the personal computer begins to work slower. It happens in a completely different reasons. And it is not necessary to make a hasty conclusion that if the PC works slowly, then it's time to change it. There are a lot of ways to increase the performance of your device. This article will tell about 5 options for speeding up Windows 7. But first it will be necessary to deal with the causes of this trouble.
Causes of slow motion
Why did the computer begin to slow down? I think that many asked such a question, but not everyone found the answer, since it is not always possible to determine the reason for slow work. List several possible processes that interfere with the productive work of Windows 7:
- Programs in autoload.
- Harmful and optional applications. Find on the PC along with the installation of unverified sources.
- The lack of official drivers on the computer.
- Filling the hard disk.
- Strong heating of a computer.
I called far from all possible reasons for the unproductive operation of the device, but even them are already enough to make specific conclusions.
Now you wonder, so what specific ways can be used to improve the quality of Windows 7? It is worth considering every case separately that you understand better, as it is more correct to enroll in your situation.
We remove unnecessary programs from autoload
In the PC system, there is a section of autoloading programs. When you turn on the device, it starts independently. Although the background applications do not interfere with the work, however, they spend a significant part of the RAM, which leads to slow operation of the computer. Therefore, I advise you to remove unnecessary programs from the startup. Initially, you need to go to the system configuration - you can do this in two ways:
Through the control panel
- The first step needs to open "Start" and go to the "Control Panel".
2. Then in the open window, select the "System and Security" item.
3. The next step is chosen the "Administration" section, and there already go to the "System Configuration".
4. Ready! After that, the window you need with the auto start program will open. But, in my opinion, this is a long way. It is better to take advantage of the second option - the discovery of the tabs we need.
Through the "Run" function
This method is much faster and easier than the first. Here you need to perform only two simple steps.
We open the start and drive to "execute". A window will open where in the "Open" line you need to enter the "msconfig" command.
No matter what method you have chosen, first or second, in any case the System Configuration tab opens. It is she who needs us to "unload" our personal computer. Initially, we will be in the General tab. It will be necessary to go to "autoload".
It is easy to guess that in this section there are applications that are automatically started when the computer is turned on - applications that you use very rarely or do not use at all. For example, I extremely rarely use Skype, so I will remove it from the autorun list. Such an action I "unload" your computer.
IMPORTANT! In no case do not remove the tick from your antivirus, as it should work constantly and run automatically.
The method is quite effective, as some programs have a strongly loading the computer, and you do not even use them.
We remove the visual effects of Windows 7
With this trick, you will quite well increase the productivity of the system of your device. Disable visual effects simple enough, you just need to follow the instructions below:
- Initially, open the "Start" and click on the "Computer" section of the right mouse button. Due to this, the window will appear, in which you need to click on the line "Properties".
2. The system of our personal computer opens. In the window that opens, we will need a section "Advanced system parameters", which is located on the left in the center.
3. After pressing the LCM, a new window will pop up in which we need a line "additionally". Before you there will be a section "Speed", it is he who needs it. Go to its parameters by pressing the left mouse button.
4. You will open "speed parameters" with the included section "Visual Effects". Do not scare a long list of different effects. Yes, I agree, there are a lot of them, but it makes it easy to work Windows 7 visually pleasant and interesting. These effects have a negative side - they strongly slow down the device. To avoid this, you need to remove unnecessary ticks.
5. If you want to remove absolutely all visual effects, you need to install a point in the "Provide the best speed" section (highlighted with a red rectangle). As soon as you choose this item, checkboxes from all visual effects will disappear. But if you do not want to lose all the effects, but you wish to remove only some, then you need to do it manually. In the field, which is highlighted in a blue rectangle, remove the checkboxes from unnecessary visual effects. Then press "OK" (highlighted by a black rectangle).
6. After that, restart the personal computer. There will be no visual effects anymore.
In my opinion, the method is effective. It really helps to facilitate the work of the PC, but without the effects, Windows work is not as pleasant as it was. Therefore, we decide what you are more important. So that the device worked faster or the use of the computer brought visual pleasure.
We remove sound support
You probably wonder what sounds are we talking about? Everything is very simple. Maybe you did not pay attention, but on the computer there are sound effects such as a double click, enabling a computer, "error", "WARNING" and others. All this is unnecessary little things that load the system. After all, the computer spends on their reproduction their resources that we are so important. Therefore, to optimize your device, you need to turn off all sound effects. To do this, perform several consecutive actions:
We again need to "execute". To do this, open the start and in the search bar we write to "execute". In the "Open" line, drive the command "mmsys.cpl" and click "OK".
IMPORTANT! The main thing is not mistaken in writing the team, otherwise nothing will open.
2. After that, windows open with the name "Sound" with the "Playback" section. This section is not required to us, so we go to the third in the account - "sounds". There are already looking for the "sound scheme" area. It is she useful to us. Right-click on the default line (I have a sound configured in this mode, you may have otherwise) and choose "without sound".
3. When everyone did, click "OK" at the bottom of the menu. Changes will take effect after restarting the personal computer.
In my opinion, this is one of the easiest and most affordable ways to increase the productivity of the system. First, without sounds, it will be unusual, but then you will forget that they were once. Of course, you will not notice a powerful acceleration after that, but the computer will already be less loaded.
Clean and optimize hard drive
Have you ever wondered where files do you want when downloading? They are stored on your hard drive of your computer. Over time, many unnecessary garbage accumulates on it, which significantly slows down the work of your device. If you think that deleting the file from the desktop, it will disappear forever, then you are very mistaken. It will continue to be stored on the memory of a personal computer. From time to time you need to "clean" your hard drive from unnecessary programs. It is also worth removing music, movies, installation files and other unused applications. As for the removal of programs, let's talk more specifically how to get rid of them. Instructions for removing unused programs:
1. Go to the "Start" and find the line "Control panel.
2. The window opens the panel we need, we are looking for a "removal of programs" paragraph and go to it.
3. There is a long list of applications that are saved on your computer. Carefully view it. Surely you will see programs that have not used for a long time. They will need to be removed. After selecting the appropriate application, click on it with the right mouse button and select "Delete".
4. Ready! Such a hard way can get rid of applications that load your hard drive. Such cleaning needs to be spent from time to time, since it is completely forbidden to scap out unused programs.
5. Now it's time to get rid of the system garbage. To do this, we need to "execute". It can be found through the "Start", it is enough to write "execute" in the line "Find programs and files". In the window that opens, enter the following command -% Temp%. After that, press ENTER.
6. After that, we open a folder that contains a huge number of temporary files. Thanks to this team, we do not have to seek all this trash manually. For us, it has already been collected in one place.
7. Do not worry, all that was stored in this folder - temporary files. This is a garbage that is subject to removal.
IMPORTANT! If the "File is already used" window pops up, then you need to skip these applications.
8. There is one more option for cleaning the hard disk from unnecessary programs. To do this, go to "My Computer" and click the right mouse button on the "local disk with". Select the item "Properties".
9. The window pops up from the disk properties already in the section "General" section. Click on "Cleaning the disc."
10. The computer system will need time to calculate the approximate volume of unnecessary files. In the menu that opens, mark all possible files checkboxes and click "OK" to confirm the deletion of files.
11. After the cleaning is completed, return to the properties of the local disk C and remove the checkbox from the "Allow index the contents of the files on this disk in addition to the file properties." Click the left mouse button on OK. A window opens, we do not change anything in it and re-press on "OK".
IMPORTANT! If the window opens, "denied access", then you need to click on the line "Continue". If the "error of attribute change" pops up - click "Skip All".
This is one of the most efficient and best ways to speed up the work of a personal computer. Removing all unnecessary garbage from the device, you not only facilitate your work, but also release a hard disk space for new programs. After all, any file to some extent loads your PC.
Turn off the unused Windows 7 components
When you turn on the computer, a variety of services and components are launched with it, which load it. Therefore, we need to disable unused components so that the personal computer worked more productively. You can do this in the following way:
- We open the start and go to the "Control Panel" section. Then choose the "Programs and Components" department. Already there find the item "Enabling or Disable Windows Components".
2. The window opens in which the components of our PC are displayed. They appear not immediately, you need to wait a bit. Some of the components are already disabled, so you can only turn off the ones that you do not use. We remove the checkboxes and click "OK".
The method is quite simple, but also the system he "unloads" is not very strong. Disabled some components, the computer will have more RAM to use.
Do not think that only a professional can optimize the computer, you can do it yourself. It is enough just to follow the advice and recommendations from this article, and then your device will work much better.
There is still a huge number of ways to increase the productivity of the system. For example, you can check the device for viruses if there is no protection from them. It is still possible to disable the search index option, optimize the power plan, change the download parameters, optimize the desktop. If you search, you can find many more different ways to improve PC. But much more importantly to brush the computer from unnecessary programs and temporary debris, which is going on it. Well, if you are completely all sad, you can get rid of sound and graphic effects. In the aggregate, all these factors will significantly increase the speed of the computer.

One of the most important criteria that characterizes the computer system is its performance. Let's figure out how to increase this basic desktop reference rate or laptop with Windows 7.

We increase productivity
Before we proceed to the question, how to increase productivity, let's see what it represents and what, in fact, we are going to raise. In Windows 7 has such a system indicator as "Productivity index" . It is based on the evaluation of individual PC nodes: processor, RAM, graphics, graphics for games and hard disk. The general index is exhibited by the weakest link. But for a number of reasons, this assessment cannot be called unambiguous and many specialists relate to it quite critically.
Undoubtedly, the power of the above components directly affects the performance of a PC, that is, on the volume of processes that the computer can process per unit of time. Next, we will consider in detail ways to increase the return on these components to increase the speed of the OS as a whole.
Lesson: Productivity index in Windows 7 Action Productivity in WINDOVS 7
Method 1: Increased hard disk performance
One of the important factors of increasing the performance of the operating system is to optimize the hard disk. Many users pay minor attention to this factor, considering that windows are important, first of all, the amount of RAM and processor power. And in vain, because the slow hard drive slows down the work of the computer as a whole, since the other components of the OS are constantly referring to it to process files and other objects located on it.
First of all, you can clean the hard disk from garbage and unnecessary files, which will speed up its operation. This can be done both by the means of the system, and with the help of third-party specialized programs, such as CCleaner.
Lesson: Cleaning the hard drive from the garbage on Windows 7 cleaning of the PC from the garbage using the CCleaner program
Increase the speed of the HDD, which means that the performance of the system as a whole helps the operation of defragmentation of the hard drive. It can be performed using a special system utility or third-party defragmentation programs.
- To start the system utility click "Start" And go through "All programs" .
- Next open the folder "Standard" .
- Then go to the catalog "Service" .
- In the list of utilities locate the object "Disk Defragmenter" And activate the appropriate tool by clicking on it.
- In the window that opens, you will need to highlight the name of the section and click "Disk Defragmenter" .
- The defragmentation procedure will be launched, upon completion of Windows should start working faster.
Lesson: Performing a hard disk defragmentation in Windows 7
In addition, it is possible to increase the speed of HDD by making it properly configured in "Device Manager" .
- Click "Start" And go to B. "Control Panel" .
- Go to section "System and safety" .
- In block "System" Click on the inscription "Device Manager" .
- In the interface opened "Device Manager" Click on item "Disk devices" .
- A list of physical hard drives connected to the PC will appear. This can be both one device and several. Double-click the left mouse button ( LKM. ) By the name of one of them.
- The window properties window opens. Move to the section "Politics" .
- This indicates productivity policy. Hard disks from different manufacturers, items in this section may differ. But, based on the general logic, look for the position that should contribute to an increase in speed. For instance, "Allow caching" or " Optimal performance » . Noting this item, press Ok in the current window.
Lesson: Acceleration of the hard disk
Method 2: Increase the amount of RAM
Increase system performance can also be by increasing the size of RAM. The most elementary and at the same time the effective method to achieve such a result is to purchase an additional or more volumetric RAM bar. But unfortunately, it is not always possible both on financial and technical considerations, because 32-bit windows 7 support the size of RAM not more than 4 GB. But it is possible to bypass this restriction.
In order to increase the scope of RAM without changing the hardware configuration, the paging file on the hard disk that generates, the so-called virtual memory is created. When the RAM resource lack, the system appeals to this selected area on the hard drive. Therefore, to increase the PC performance, you must enable the specified file if it is disabled.
- Click "Start" and then click right mouse button on item "A computer" . In the menu that opens, choose "Properties" .
- The OS properties window will start. In the left of it, press "Extra options…" .
- In the shell opened, click on the button "Options…" In block "Speed" .
- The speed parameter window opens. Turn to the section "Additionally" .
- In block "Virtual Memory" Click on the button "Change ..." .
- Virtual memory control window opens. In the upper part of it, you can install a tick near the parameter "Automatically choose ..." And the system itself will select the settings for the paging file.
But we advise you to set the parameters manually. For this, first of all, remove the checkbox from Chekbox "Automatically choose ..." if it is installed there. Then select the logical disk in the selection window where you wish to locate the paging file. Below rearrange the switch to the position "Specify Size" . After this field "Original Size" и "Maximum Size" will be active. Put the same value of the desired virtual memory value in megabytes. Then click on the button "Set" и Ok .
- In order for the entered settings to take effect, it is required to restart the computer.
It must be remembered that the swap file is too large should not be created. First, you, therefore, lose the workspace that could be used to store files. Secondly, the speed of contacting the hard disk is much slower than to the hardware RAM. Therefore, with an increase in virtual memory, it is possible to handle a larger amount of processes at the same time, but the speed is reduced, which negatively affects the performance of the system as a whole. It is believed that the optimal size is one and a half times higher than the volume of hardware RAM PC. We recommend setting the volume of the paging file based on this calculation. If you are already installed, we advise you to change its size on the optimal one.
Lesson: Changing the volume of the paging file in Windows 7
Method 3: Disable graphic effects
It is no secret that graphic effects consume a significant part of the power of the video card, the processor and use a considerable amount of RAM. To free up the resources of these objects to perform other tasks and thereby increase the speed of the system as a whole, you can turn off some visual effects.
- To perform the specified task, again open the additional parameters of the system and go to the speed parameters window in the same way as described in the previous method. In section "Visual effects" Set the switch to the position "Provide the best speed" . After that, press "Apply" и Ok .
But if you do not want to disable all the effects, but only some of them, then rearrange the switch to the position "Special Effects" And remove the marks from those items that you wish to deactivate. Then press the same "Apply" и Ok .
- After that, all visual effects or some of them in accordance with the selected option will be disabled, and the resources of various elements of the system, primarily the video card, will be released for other tasks.
In addition, optimize resource consumption on the chart can also be using the video adapter control panel. The installation algorithm for the necessary parameters differs depending on the manufacturer and model of the video card, but the essence comes down to choose a performance between performance and quality or at least install the best balance for you between these two criteria.
Enhance the performance of the video adapter will also help the timely update of its drivers and the installation of special software designed to optimize the video card.
Lesson: Acceleration of the video card
Method 4: Disable applications in autorun
Quite often, when installing the program, the programs are prescribed into autorun, thereby not only slowing the loading of the system, but also by consuming resources throughout the working session. But at the same time, the user does not always need these applications, that is, they often consume the resources of the OS. In this case, you need to remove such elements from the startup.
- Type a combination Win + R. . In the window that opened:
Apply Pressing the button Ok .
- The system configuration editing window opens. Move in the section "Autoload" .
- The startup section opens. Further actions depend on whether you want to disable the automatic start of all elements or only some of them. The first action of actions will bring a greater effect, but it must be borne in mind that there are such programs that are preferable to leave in autoruns specifically to solve your tasks. So there is a solution for you.
- In the first case, just click on the button "Disable everything" . After that, the marks opposite all the list items will be removed, then press "Apply" и Ok .
In the second case, remove the ticks near those elements that are going to remove from the startup, but do not touch the marks opposite the names of the programs left in the autorun. Further, like the previous time, press "Apply" и Ok .
- After that, the dialog box opens where the PC restarts will be prompted. Close all active programs and click "Restart" .
- After restarting, the selected applications will be removed from the startup, which releases the resources of the system and will increase its speed.
Lesson: Disconnecting the autorun applications in Windows 7
Method 5: Disable Services
Various started services are also carried out on the system. At the same time, not all of them are needed to the user, but from the actions of some of these objects of negative consequences even more than positive. Such elements are desirable to disable for increasing PC performance. The principle of deactivation is about the same as the principle of removal of programs from autoload. But there is one important reservation: it is necessary to treat the services more carefully, since deactivation of an important element may lead to incorrect operation of the system.
- Press "Start" Go to B. "Control Panel" .
- Next, go to "System and safety" .
- Click "Administration" .
- In the list that opens, choose "Services" .
- Opens "Service Manager" . Highlight the service that you want to deactivate, and then in the left side of the window, click "Stop" .
- Deactivation procedure will be performed.
- After that, double click LKM. By the name of the same service.
- The window of the service properties opens. In the drop-down list "Startup type" Choose a position "Disabled" . Then make a pressure on the buttons "Apply" и Ok .
- Return to the main window "Dispatcher" And the service itself will be completely deactivated. This will indicate the lack of status "Working" In column "Condition" opposite the element turned off, as well as status "Disabled" in a collumn "Startup type" .
After performing the indicated manipulations to disable all unnecessary services, the speed of the system should increase due to the release of resources. But, we repeat, feel carefully at what service is disconnected. Before performing the procedure, see our separate material in which it is described which services can be turned off without significant negative consequences for the OS.
Lesson: Deactivation of unnecessary services in Windows 7
Method 6: Cleaning the Registry
Another way to speed up the PC is cleaning the system registry from outdated and erroneous entries. Thus, the system will not refer to the specified elements, which will increase not only the speed of its operation, but also the correctness of operation. For these purposes, special-cleaner programs are applied. One of the most popular applications for performing the specified task is already familiar to us by Method 1 CCleaner.
Lesson: High-quality registry cleaner from the registry error with CCleaner
Method 7: Power Setup
The following option for increasing the speed of the OS is the correct setting of the power supply.
- Go to section "Control Panels" entitled "System and safety" . The algorithm of this transition was described in Method 5. . Next click "Power supply" .
- In the opening window of the Power Plan, you can only rearrange the radio button to the position "High performance" , after which you can close the window.
For desktop PCs, this method is particularly suitable, as it does not have almost no negative consequences. But if you use a laptop, you need to think if it is worth applying it, as it can significantly increase the battery discharge rate.
Method 8: processor acceleration
By default, the processor is not configured to use its maximum features. It always has a power supply, and therefore there are methods of this power to free up to increase the performance of the OS. As a rule, they are carried out using special software. But it is worth remembering that the processor's acceleration is a rather dangerous procedure that, with incorrect exercise, can lead to a PC output. In any case, the processor dispersal leads to an increase in its wear, and with incorrect actions even to failure in the shortest possible time.
Lesson: Acceleration of the processor on laptopping processor speed
As we see, increasing the performance of the system in Windows 7 is carried out mainly by reducing the load on individual components. At the same time, it is often necessary to choose that the speed of work or visual appearance is more important. Although there are such methods where such a dilemma is not worth it, for example, cleaning a PC from garbage. In this case, optimization has only a positive character with the condition that you do everything right.We are glad that you could help you solve the problem. Describe what you did not work.
Our specialists will try to answer as quickly as possible.
Will this article help you?WELL NO
I will describe a big collection of tips on how to speed up the computer. 25 steps that will help you cope with slow loading system.
All these tips, I applied on my computers and the result was felt visually, even without measuring speed. I hope you will not have difficulties with the implementation of all steps.
- These tips are suitable for all Windows Operating Systems.
- All pictures are presented from the Windows 7 operating system. If you have another operating system, look for such items or specify your question in the comments. I will help.
- Do not restart the computer until the end of all items. In order to save time and greater use of everything done, fulfill all points for the sequence in which they are written.
- This article is aimed at the maximum increase in the speed of the computer by victim of the beauty and convenience of the Wiindows interface. Some tips may seem absurd.
- On computers with weak characteristics there will be a very noticeable increase in speed of work.
Disabling visual effects
These are dragging / closing / opening effects, various shadows and sketches for a beautiful display. Go to Start >> Control Panel >> Select View Category and click on System and Safety. In this category, find:
The following window appears in which, select the setting of visual effects.
In the window that appears, select "Best Speed" as in the image:
You will immediately notice the change. It will be a bit unusual, but the computer will be accelerated. Do not close this window, you need it further.
Processor time distribution
Setup allows you to set the priority of processor resource distribution. In the same window, that in the image above, select the "Advanced" tab and set the priority to the program, and not the services working in the background:
Then go to the paging file settings window.
Configuring Podchock File
The paging file is used when the computer lacks RAM.
It is not recommended to disable it ( Even if you have 32GB + RAM ), Many applications will not be able to work without it.
Paddock file size Provide to select the system. Mark the appropriate item.
It makes sense to put a fixed value if a slow disk and a little memory. In other cases, changes can only harm the system.
Optimization of the desktop
To speed up the download of the computer, remove as many labels from the desktop as possible. The computer spends time on their calculations. The fewer labels - the faster the desktop will be loaded when PC is turned on.
After that, you should remove the background image and the screensaver on the desktop. When loading the computer will not waste time on their calculations.
Go to Start >> Control Panel >> Design and In the Screen category, select "Change the desktop background" as in the image below:
Then remove the background drawing and replace it with a solid color. I prefer black as it is less thanks the eye due to low brightness.
Now go back to the "Design" find a category "Desktop Gadgets" category ( There is no Windows XP ). And click on the removal of gadgets. Delete all the gadgets that you have . In essence, you do not need, all the information presented in them and so there is on your computer or on the Internet.
Next, remove the desktop screensaver. Go to category Design and find the screen category.
A window appears in which you remove the screensaver. The image below:
You slightly accelerated the work of the computer, now it will not spend so much time on loading labels, screensavers, background pattern and desktop widgets.
Turning off system sounds
It is all known sounds: double click, error, warning, login, output and others. Personally, I don't need them at all. The computer will also need time and resources to play these sounds and therefore it is better to turn off.
Go to Start >> Control Panel >> Equipment and Sound and find there "Changing System Sounds" as in the picture below.
Select a "without sound" audio circuit and remove the checkbox with "play the Windows start-up melody" confirming the change.
Changing the appearance of windows
Now change the appearance of all the windows so that they consume less computer resources and it worked faster. To do this, go to the Control Panel >> Design >> Screen >> Changing the color scheme.
Choose a classic design topic.
You may not like the appearance and will be very unusual. This topic contains the minimum.
Disable Windows Download Screen
Press the sign Windows + R. . If it is not: go to the start and enter "execute" in searching to go to the execution string. Write a command in it msconfig And the desired window will open.
Tick without GUI .
Now, while the computer is turned on, you will have a black screen instead of the Windows boot band. Thus, you can speed up the enable computer.
Do not close this window and go to the next item.
Disable graphic cursor pattern
To further increase the speed of work - you can disable the animation of the cursor. Go to Start >> Control Panel >> Mouse:
Then open the "Pointers" tab and remove the cursor scheme as in the image below:
Adjusting the video card
Determine what your video card you have and proceed to setup. You should set the greatest performance.
Setting up NVIDIA video card.
Go to Start >> Control Panel >> NVIDIA Control Panel:
Go to the "Manage 3D Parameters" tab and find the Filtering Line of Quality Textures. In it, select High performance as in the image below:
Adjusting an Intel video card
Go to Start >> Control Panel >> Screen:
Then go to the screen resolution settings:
After that, select Advanced Parameters:
In the window that appears, click the tab as on the image below and select Graphic Specifications:
Setting the maximum number of processors
In the same window, as in step 7, select "Additional parameters" and in the window that appears, put the largest number of processors. Everyone will be different, depends on the computer. Choose the biggest.
Thus, the computer will work for all power using all processors when loading. Do not close the window and continue.
Disabling unnecessary programs from autoload
Go to the "Startup" tab and remove all unnecessary programs.
Here are displayed programs that are automatically downloaded when the computer is turned on.
I only left the program for updating the video card drivers and your antivirus. The rest is unnecessary. But for greater speed, you can turn off everything.
Disabling unnecessary Windows services
In Windows, there are many different services that are constantly working and you may not even know about it. Disabling unnecessary services will speed up the computer. Go to the Start menu and enter "Services" in the search bar.
I will show an example which services are usually not needed.
The image below shows the service responsible for fax. Selected advanced view of the presentation and the left is the description. By him, you can understand what this or that service does. I turned off this service, I do not use fax fax. And there are a lot of such services.
When the services are disconnected, it is worth considering their dependencies. You can disable 1 service, and will not work 3 and therefore it is desirable to go to the "dependency" tab and view their list.
Disable services from everyone individually. Someone does not need a print function, someone does not need a parental control function ... Read about unnecessary services and disconnect them. If you doubt - ask a question in the comments. Even if you turn off the desired function - all services can always be turned on back.
Disconnect the services only if you know what they do !!!
Disable disc indexing
Disk indexing is needed to quickly search on it. After disconnection, the search will work slower, but the increase in the speed of the computer will also be.
Go to my computer >> and open the disk properties with the right mouse button:
Then remove the checkbox with "Allow indexing the contents of files on this disk in addition to the file properties" as shown below.
Wait for the completion of the indexing and do the same with the rest of the disks ( If there is ).
Cleaning a disc
Wherever you cleaned the indexing of the disk, click on the "Clearing Disk" button and check the ticks opposite all items:
Now go to the Advanced tab as in the image below:
Cleaning will delete all control points of the system recovery other than the last one.
In case of failures, you in 99.99% of cases need the latest checkpoint. Therefore, it is absolutely safe.
Checking disk for errors
Return to the property of the local disk and open the "Service" tab as in the picture below. Click on "Check ..." and put all checkboxes.
Next, you have such a window if you use this case at the moment:
You need to click on the "Disc Check Schedule" button and now, when you turn on the computer, there will be a long check of your disk with the correction of all errors and problems in it. Therefore, you need to patience and wait. Reboot the computer yet, which is not worth it. Go to the next item.
Disable Windows components
For even greater acceleration, you can disable unused Windows components. Go to the Start menu >> Control Panel >> Remove Programs >> Enable or Disable Windows Components.
Disconnect all unnecessary components. For example, Internet Explorer 8 browser, which you do not use or play in the Start >> All Programs >> Standard. You can also turn off the print.
Removing unnecessary programs
To clean the computer from unnecessary programs, we use the free CCleaner program. In general, it is considered the best program to optimize the computer, it is very useful for you.
Download the link, Run, select the Russian language and install. After that, run the program and go to the service >> Remove programs, see Image:
Clearing folder with downloads
In this folder, there are usually many duplicate files that you downloaded from the Internet. You should see what is there and remove unnecessary. Go to the Start menu and in the search bar type: downloads.
In this folder, delete everything too much.
Cleaning a computer from viruses
A very important point as precisely because of the viruses can slowly slow down the work of the computer. To get rid of viruses download a free program Dr Web Cureit. . Follow the instructions on the link page.
After that, download the antivirus already to protect the computer from viruses. I recommend ESET NOD32 SMART SECURITY . I myself actively use it, compared to other antiviruses, he best copes with his task ( in my experience ).
After downloading and install, simply start the full scan and wait until your computer is fully checked.
Cleaning from excess garbage
You again need a program of the CSCleaner. Open it and adjust to clean.
If you are using one search engine, then you can safely put all the ticks in unused, and in the search engine you use, it is better to put only 3 ticks:
- Internet cache.
- Download history.
- Last location.
Perform an analysis - the files will be shown to be deleted.
This cleaning allows you to get rid of temporary files, the history of visits on the Internet and other not too useful data.
Now when your computer is disposed of unnecessary and unnecessary files, the disk defragmentation should be performed.
For defragmentation, you will need 1 free program from the same company as CCleaner. Download the Defraggler program and install it.
Running the program, select the disk and make defragmentation.
It will take a long time, but it is very important to speed up the computer.
It is worth noting that defragmentation extends the performance of your hard disk.
Do this operation with all your discs if there are several of them, and then proceed to the next item.
Defragmentation of system files
Run the Defraggler program and select one-time defragmentation of system files when the computer is started as in the image below:
It will be made with the next launch of the computer.
Elimination of problems in the registry
After all the points performed on the acceleration of the computer, you will have many errors in the registry. To correct them, use the CClener program.
Run the program and select the Registry section >> Search for problems.
Please note that all checkboxes should be marked.
Then click Fit >> Form everything. Repeat the search for problems until there is no one. Copies registry do optionally. For several years of work, this program does not spoil anything in it and I never did copies.
Using ReadyBoost technology
This technology is not in Windows XP. In later versions of Windows it is available. This technology allows you to speed up the operation of the computer thanks to the memory flash drive.
All you need to do is format the USB flash drive and connect to the computer. Then go to my computer and go to the properties of your flash drive.
Now just do not pull your flash drive.
It is worth noting that when using this technology, the flash drive is quickly wear out and deteriorate.
Not every flash drive can approach ReadyBoost by clicking on the link you can familiarize yourself with this technology.
Additionally, if you have a laptop
Adjust the power plan for high performance. If you all use a laptop with a connected charging - it will not hurt you, but only speeds work. Go to the Start and enter in the search for "Power" as in the image below.
Now your computer will quickly work. Your results and questions write in the comments. Thanks for attention.
