Everyone will wish to have
a PC new bright burning coal with enormous capacities,
even if if nowadays, the current performances of the last
PC are superb. But it should not be forgotten either that
it quasi totality of the computers used are not very first
youth. Everyone cannot be allowed to repurchase a PC each
year for the simple pleasure of saying itself: "Ouai
I have the most powerful PC of the moment!". I do
not speak either about the electronic components which
one can install progressively to increase the capacities.
But there is several difficulty: the compatibility of
the elements, the price which is not inevitably given
and knowledge to install them. If is to renovate a PC
by a specialist and to spend an insane sum, to buy nine
of them as much...
Therefore, it is always useful
to know certain methods to optimize the computer to facilitate
the life and especially without expenses.
First of all, I would like
to warn you whom if you must make of the modifications
of the base of register, think of safeguarding.
The base of register is the "skeleton" of Windows.
It is by it that Windows knows where is such application,
such function or information. Change a parameter of Office
for example and it will be impossible to open Word or
It is quite simply enough to safeguard it before any change:
go in start then Execute and type regedit. In small Fichiers
click on Exporter. Notch the box All and indicate the
name and the way of the safeguard.
To restore the base of register, it is enough to follow
the same procedure. Instead of clicking on Exporter it
is Importer that it is necessary to choose. Indicate to
him the file then to be installed. Do not make either
several modifications of a blow. Do them one-by-one.
The first easy ways all will
seem to you silly, but will know, especially that in company,
much of people do not make them and complain after the
PC is slow....
defragmentation of the hard disk.
The installations and successive desinstallations of software,
the copies and other joinings of files by-Ci by-there,
the safeguards..., all this handling involve a scattering
of the data on the hard disk, which resembles Gruyere
then. The more the data are split up, the more the response
time to open an application or to work will be long. This
is why, defragmenter is needed regularly the hard disk
(in general once by week).
Go in start then Programmes, Accessoires and Tools system.
Select Defragmente of disc. Choose the partitions to defragmente.
Look that in Parametres, three boxes: To reorganize the
files so that my programs start more quickly and To check
the reader as always are well notched.
proceed to ScanDisk.
You must, at least once by week, to carry out the ScanDisk
software on the hard disk. That makes it possible to detect
errors of the reader and to repair them. It n’ d’
is not necessary; to carry out a complete scan, except
if you l’ did not make for a long time.
the utility of maintenance of Windows.
Go in start/Programmes/Accesoires/tools System and Assistant
Maintenance. That makes it possible to optimize Windows
as well as possible.
the temporary files and the cookies.
During your surfings, your navigator preserves all the
Web pages which you have consultées.Sur certain
stations, the size of the file Temporary Internet Files
can reach an enormous weight. Made purge it more space

the base of register.
As we saw, the base of register holds all information
of the system like those of the software. If you installez/désinstallez
programs, the system must theoretically erase any trace
of this software. Moreover, the base of register keeps
the traces of documents opened, moved, safeguarded etc...
To clean it, use the free utility RegCleaner which analyzes
all the short cuts stored in this base and checks that
they lead to an existing file. That results in to reduce
this base and to accelerate its loading with starting.
In addition to doing housework in the base of register,
RegCleaner enables you to know all the software installed,
even those which are hidden as well as the programs which
are with the starting of Windows.
the applications which are with the starting of Windows.
Certain software which you install launches in all impunity
to each starting of Windows. This slows down considerably
the starting of the system and the fact of not making
them start makes it possible to gain a little power while
releasing from the memory. I would advise you to keep
only your antivirus like your parefeu with starting.
Go in Start-Carrying out and type msconfig. In the start
shutter strip the software which you know well and who
should not be with starting. Attention, do not strip anything
because that could harm the correct operation of Windows.
the applications in progress which are not useful.
Many people open software with the day progressively and
complain about the slowness of the PC. To gain power,
close the programs which you do not use...
hunting for the viruses.
One can only point out it. If you are connected to Internet,
imperatively install anti-virus on your machine. To know
some more, consult the complete file on the viruses and
the spies or spywares.
The spywares are small programs hidden in other applications
or which settle without your knowledge. They spies least
the gestures than you make and return information via
the Net. It also can upgrader and there, to make beautiful
breaches on your navigator and to let with leisure the
pirates come in their turn. The only thing to be made,
to install a software which makes hunting for the spywares
of the type AD-Aware which moreover can be updated regularly.
updates of the system like for the pilots of the peripherals.
The computer evolves/moves through the updates:
To update Windows via Windows Update (Finely To start),
makes it possible to have a more stable and surer system
against the attacks of Internet. The function Windows
Update will connect you on the site of Microsoft which
will analyze your configuration and will suggest you the
Make also the updates of the pilots of the peripherals.
There will be less conflicts and better performances.
Check the model of your graphics board, chart its or printer...,
then defer you on the Web site of the manufacturers. Have
a maximum of choice, on the Touslesdrivers.com.
For the software, seek the patchs which stabilize and
solve the quite specific and identified problems.
For the plays and the multi-media one in general, think
of installing the last version of DirectX.
For Internet Explorer, put the plugin java of SUN which
is more stable than that of Microsoft. Also think of installing
the last version of the plugin Flash of Macromedia.
If, despite everything information
sitées above or in the file of the procedures a
little more pointed, you do not manage to optimize Windows,
there remains nothing any more but one thing to be made:
either to crush Windows, or to format the hard disk to
reinstall Windows, method imparrable to find a PC nickel.
If you safeguarded the base of register and created a
point of restoration at the beginning, think of restoring
them by safeguarding all your personal files. Thus you
will find the configuration original of Windows. Do not
forget to reinstall the software put after the safeguard
of the base of register as of the point of restoration
because it will be désinstallés after this

Now, let us pass to procedures a
