How to make your computer faster

There are various ways to maintain your computer well and most of them are free and efficient

Ive been in computer support for more than 10 years now. Having trusted tools for specific jobs makes life easier and safer. Ive listed below my free

tools that makes my computer life better.

Avast, my favorite and trusted antivirus. After failing from paid and free antiviruses, only this brand I have settled.

Its free version comes with anti-spyware which are used by hackers to get our information and use for their own good.

Here are features that makes Avast on top.
1. Virus detection. Avast is know for its real-time shield. This feature will pop-up everytime it detects virus, spyware or malware like ativities. Mail, Web,

P2P, IM, Network, Script, Behavior are part of Real-time shields.

2. Boot time scan. Allow users to scan the computer just after booting and before loading windows files. Boot time is the best time to scan a computers

when all files are unloaded. This is specially good for viruses that uses rootkits.

3. Additional protection, Avast added free service:
* Auto Sanbox, this will automatically run any suspicious program inside the Avast sanbox at the moment the program is executed. This ensures that

no damage can be done to the operating system or documents.
* WebRep, a module that allows us to view reputation ratings for each website we , and even the results of the web searches we make. Technically, it

works as a browser plug-in.
* Site blocking, enable us to block access to specific websites/URLs.

Malwarebytes, this is the trusted brand in anti-malware world. I usually run this program before running Avast to make sure that my computer are free

from any malware.

Ccleaner, This acts like the janitor of my computers which I run before Malware and Avast. Its cleaning includes, Temporary Internet files, History,

Cookies, Recently typed URLs, Index.dat files, last Download Location, Recent Documents, Run (in Start Menu), Search Autocomplete, Other Explorer

MRUs, Empty Recycle bin, Temporary Files. Clipboard, Momory Dumps, Windows Log Files

Registry cleaning and Startup cleaning are another great feature of this tool.

CCleaner is the number-one tool for cleaning your Windows PC. It protects your privacy online and makes your computer faster and more secure.

CHKDSK /R this is the default tool that checks hard drive and display its status. I usually run this whenever I have spare time at least 2 hours. Including

/R in the command mean Bad sectors will be located and recovers readable information

Disk Defragmenter, designed to increase access speed by rearranging files stored on a disk to occupy contiguous storage locations, a technique called

defragmentation. Defragmenting a disk minimizes head travel, which reduces the time it takes to read files from and write files to the disk. Beginning

with Windows XP, Disk Defragmenter also reduces system startup times.

Windows update, most of the time being up to date is good however I make wise selection of the updates before installing on my system.

Windows Driver Tool, this keeps my drivers up to date and lessen my headaches.
