Run a Malicious Software Scan On Your Computer

I recommend using the free version of MalwareBytes Anti-Malware program to remove malicious software and toolbars installed for malicious and/or money making intentions. These programs are knows to be computer system hogs.  There is also a new type of malware called ransomware that will allege you have illegal software or illegal pictures on your PC and will threaten to report you to the FBI or other authorities unless you pay them off,  These are scams.  Don’t fall for them.  Run a malware scanner.

Run a Scan Disk and Disk Derangement On Your Computer

These will check your hard drive for errors and defragment your drive which means it will put all of your most related software and files closer to each other on your computer’s hard drive.  Optionally you can have all your frequently used program put on the fastest access point of the hard drive, but this takes longer to do. You can use a freeware version of Wise Care 365 to accomplish this or use the version that come installed with Windows. The software also removes registry errors, defragments your registry and frees up computer memory resources on demand.  Wise Care 365 also includes a Memory Optimizer.

Run a Virus Scan On Your Computer

Especially if you have a child using your computer. There is a free version of the AVS antivirus software you can download and run.

Remove Google Toolbar Or Other Toolbars From Your Internet Browser

Google Toolbar for Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome will slow down your browser’s opening time and also slow you down when opening new tabs or new windows.  Also lose andy IE, FireFox or Chrome add-on and extension you don’t use frequently.

Remove Unneeded Shortcuts From Your Computer’s Desktop

This is alleged to make for a faster boot time especially on the Mac.

I recommend using freeware and shareware like CCleaner, MalwareBytes Anti-Malware and Wise Care 365 to keep your PC clean and optimized. There are both free and paid versions of MalwareBytes and Wise you can download and use on a trial basis.
