A slow PC is reported to be one of the most common complaints PC repair technicians hear when users bring in their computers for repair or service. This condition may be caused by a wide array of issues, including invalid or corrupt entries in system elements, incorrect system settings that interfere with proper operation, misconfigured internet connection settings that lead to slower connection speed and a number of other factors.

It may be possible to speed up your PC with a special software that detects and eliminates common causes of PC slowdowns.

The article provides details on the symptoms, potential causes and ways to speed up PC.

Symptoms of slow PC conditions

The most common symptoms of a slow PC include increased time for startup and shutdown, slower application launching, application or whole system freezes, slower response times (which may be noticed by users of text editors, where typed characters may appear on the screen with a brief delay), application crashes that require program restarts or computer reboots. In the case of slow internet connection speed, the user may notice slower web browsing, lower file download or upload speeds, poor quality of web calls, delays in message delivery when using chat programs and a number of other slowness symptoms.

Causes of slow PC conditions

Among the most common causes of slow PC conditions are misconfigured system settings that require adjusting, presence of invalid or corrupt entries in system elements that prevent applications or system components from operating properly. Slow web browsing, downloads and web call interruptions on a supposedly high-speed connection may be caused by incorrect network settings.

Ways to speed up PC

Advanced PC users may be able to improve their computer's speed by manually resolving the common causes of computer slowdown – by adjusting system and internet connection settings. However, since any manipulations with system settings and system elements carry a risk of rendering the operating system unbootable, whenever a user is in any doubt of their technical skills or knowledge, they may use a special software that is meant to resolve common speed issues and repair system elements without requiring any special skills from the user.
