Speed Up Windows

Well this is first and foremost thing you should do to speed up your pc. It is compulsory that’s why I have mentioned this. No rocket science is involved in this. If your computer is vulnerable with virus or a spy or any kind of malicious script then the speed of your computer will definitely be compromised.
You can install Avast Antivirus as it is available for free. A antivirus can deep scan your PC for infected virus and malware and remove them from your computer and hence you will have more speed.
Use less Programs at startup
Another handy option which you all know but more often you avoid this thing. You should always keep an eye on how much start-up program you use. Keep the programs which are really necessary and remove those which are not. It will definitely help in speeding up your pc.
To Start with you should check how much program is running as startup. You can check it by pressing “ ctrl+shft+esc” . Navigate to startup and disable all the programs which are not necessary or you don’t use
Uninstall less used Software
