In this inaugural article I would like to share with blog readers fastncheap about how to make computer anti catfish  by doing some simple maintenance and tune ups on your computer to improve the performance of windows.
Before making anti-slow computer, we should know in advance some of the things that cause performance of our computers slow, often hangs even appear a variety of errors that led to computer crashes , so no longer convenient to use. Some of the most common things that can cause problems on the computer so slow
computer we feel we are:
  1. Ignoring Minimum Hardware Requirements , when installing an application.
    All the software / applications have a minimum specification of computer hardware necessary for the application can run normally. And we remember it is a minimum specification, so that applications can run optimally computer specs we should be higher than the system requirements of the application.
  2. Overheating in the hardware components , some hardware components that often occurs is overheating Processor, Mainboard, VGA Card and Power Supply. Overheat the hardware components that usually occurs because the cooling system is not working optimally (eg processor fan), computers are placed in a room that does have a high enough temperature or it could be because the computer that operated 24 hours nonstop.
  3. Live time , computer hardware also can not fight age, especially for components capacitors on the mainboard and hard drive. In general, computers that have been operating more than 5 years it was time to be upgraded or replaced.
