1. Erase any unused filed and folders. This is the easiest thing you can right now. Go through all the filed and folders and ask yourself do I ever use or do I need this still? The reason why this works is because the more junk you have the more memory you have filled up which in turn bogs down your computer because is working harder with more files on it.

This will make sure your hard drive is organized and that information is easy to get to.
3. Remove infections. Make sure you have a good virus cleaner that can scan and remove and spyware and viruses. This should a tool that everybody has on their computer. Not does it remove harmful stuff will prevent it from happening.

4. Remove temporary internet files. This is an overlooked thing that many users forget about. Anytime you visit a website it stores files from the webpage and saves it.
