Since its launch in October 2009, Windows Seven has quickly become one of the most popular and widely-used operating systems in the World, with thousands of people using it every day. However, it still has a big problem in the form of running slowly… which you can actually fix quite easily.
One of the biggest reasons for Windows 7 running slowly is the amount of resources that are taken up by junk files & programs. Not many people realize this as a problem…. but having too many programs and files that are taking up system resources can make your PC run at a snail’s pace. This is a problem because computers work by having limited resources.
The problem with most Windows 7 PCs is that most people don’t have enough system resources or power to make their computer do what they need. Essentially, computers work by having a set amount of memory, speed and hard drive space; which are all used together by your system. Whenever you use your PC, various levels of memory and system speed are used by each program you have, and so you need to make sure you have adequate levels of system resources in order to run them (this is where the term “minimum requirements” comes from).
Unfortunately, Windows 7 has a fatal flaw which makes it eat up more and more of your system resources whenever you use it. Essentially, it runs by using a part of your system called the ‘registry’, which is a big database that stores all the settings and personalized details for your PC. The registry is highly important but is constantly making your system run slower as it is getting more and more ‘corrupt’ every day.
Because the registry holds 100,000’s of settings for Windows, it’s constantly opening and editing many registry files for your system. And because there are so many of these files open at once, Windows is forever getting confused and saving many of these files in the wrong way, making them corrupt and unreadable. This means that the next time your PC needs to open these files, it can’t, and ends up spending more and more system resources trying to load them up. This makes Windows use more and more resources trying to open these corrupt files, slowing your PC down considerably.
This is the biggest reason why Windows 7 runs slowly… but fortunately, it’s one of the easiest to fix. You just need to be able to fix all the corrupt registry files that are in your system, and to do that, you need to use a tool called a ‘registry cleaner’. Registry cleaners scan through the registry database and remove all the corrupt and damaged files that are in there and slowing your PC down. This means that if you get a cleaner which fixes the most problems, you can make your system run like new again (as new systems don’t have any corrupt files to slow them down).
