If you often find yourself complaining that, "my computer is slow," then it is time that you take a few steps to speed up your Vista computer and prevent several avoidable Vista errors.
Discussed here are three top tips that can help you prevent many different types of Windows Vista errors and also speed up your computer in the process.
Tip # 1: Keep your system free from unwanted programs : Quite a few computer users fail to remove programs when they no longer need to use them. This results in the graduating filling up and cluttering of the disk that may generate different types of computer errors related to memory and other hard disk problems. This is the reason why, it is recommended that you check your system periodically for programs you no longer use, and uninstall them. This will not only help you free up space on the hard disk, but also enable you to speed up your computer.
Tip # 2: Get rid of junk files, folder, and other data : In addition to unwanted programs, there are several other causes of junk information on your computer. This includes temporary Internet Files, temporary program files, old program setup files, downloaded program files, deleted data in the Recycle Bin, and so on. Many errors, such as the spoolsv.exe Vista error occurs when no longer required files related to a program or device driver accumulate on the disk. For instance, the spoolsv.exe error occurs due to the accumulation of a large number of print spooler files in C: Windows System32 Spool Printers folder. To resolve problems caused by these unwanted files, you may need to browse through various folders in Windows Explorer and delete the files you no longer need. You may also use the Windows Disk Cleanup tool to perform many disk clean up activities, such as compress old system files, delete temporary files, and empty your Recycle Bin.
Tip # 3: Clean your registry : The Windows registry is used by your Windows operating system to store system configuration information. This is the reason why, each and every task that is performed on the PC, needs to refer to the registry to get information on how to carry out a particular operation. This constant use of the Windows registry when the PC is operational makes it quite sufficient to attract a large amount of unwanted information that unnecessarily fills it up and cause registry bloating. A bloated registry can dramatically slow down your computer and generate many different types of computer errors. To prevent this situation, you must regularly scan and clean your registry to eliminate all this unwanted junk data. Windows operating systems are shipped with the Registry Editor tool that can help you perform registry clean up to some extent. However, this tool is difficult to use and the chances of errors are quite high. To avoid this situation, it is recommended that you use a reliable registry cleaner tool to clean your registry. There are several tools available on the Web today. You must look for a tool that is compatible with Windows Vista and enterprises features that help you clean, defrag, and backup your registry.
