6 Ways to Improve PC Performance

There is no getting away from slower computer performance over time. Technology is autonomous so you have to take care of your hardware and software if you like to expand their lifetime. We’ve all experienced slow loading speed and glitches on computers once they get clogged up by different things over time.

Fortunately, there are different methods to clean up all the things that affect your computer performance. However, if you like to keep everything running smoothly, you must do proper maintenance constantly.

In this article, we will go through some of the ways to improve PC performance so you would not need an upgrade.


1. Uninstall Unnecessary Applications

Most of us usually install some application that we need at the time and forget about it when we don’t even use it. These unnecessary applications are called bloatware by their technical term and they are considered to be useless things that eat up system resources, especially when you have start-up applications. It is very important to clean all the unused items that you can find in your computer.


2. Lower the Number of Startup programs


Usually, when your computer takes too much time to boot up, it means that it’s facing trouble by having so many different programs to start at the beginning. All of these programs will also run in the background of your PC and slow down your performance.


You have to open Task Manager and see which programs are eating most of your RAM memory. It is important to keep only essential programs on your startup menu and remove all others.


3. Check for Viruses


Viruses are the main problem in every computer and with today’s wide selection of unsafe websites that we visit you can easily get your computer infected. Even though Windows Defender does a good job protecting your PC from malware, you still have to install software that will keep your PC protected at all times. You should be careful choosing the right anti-virus software just because some of them can take too much space and memory from your RAM in order to run, which will only slow your computer even more. The best way is to create schedule scans and remove all the threats.


4. Disk Cleanup and Defragment


Disk cleanup is the best way to find any unnecessary files in your PC that you haven’t used for a while. It will free up drive space making your computer running smoothly. On the other hand, disk defragment is keeping your drives healthy by removing any gaps from deleted applications on the drive. You can also schedule disk to defragment on weekly basis so you would not have to worry about that.


5. Check your web browser


If the internet content such as websites, pictures or videos is loading slowly, you might take a look at your browser. Some browsers can slow your PC or create some lag, so make sure you are using a reliable internet browser. Also, you must check if your cache is cleaned, just because storing cache for a long time can also slow down your computer.


6. Consider an upgrade


If you successfully completed all the tasks that are mentioned above, then you should consider a small upgrade that will affect PC performance.

Usually, when it is speed in question you might consider two things:


• Upgrading your RAM


• Using startup SSD


RAM plays a big role in every computer’s performance. By upgrading your RAM memory your PC can be able to run more applications at the same time.

However, upgrading RAM memory on regular laptops is a very hard process and almost impossible, so you have to settle with the thing that came in the box. On the other hand, upgrading RAM on desktop is very easy and cheap process that you can do it yourself, but just make sure you have an extra slot in your motherboard.


If you are using a startup SSD your computer should boot up at incredible speed. This solid-state drive (SSD) is taking the pressure of the processors for faster boot time. This is a very powerful drive that can process everything at much greater speed. Since they are expensive, people buy small size 128GB units that should be enough only for the operating system. The rest of the files are stored on normal hard drive.


These are some of the ways where you can improve your PC performance. It is important that you keep everything organized and cleaned constantly, just so you avoid clogging up your computer to a point where is not fixable and keep it running as fast as a winning horse on the Breeders cup race.

Best online adult games and where to find them

Do you know that gaming is the most dominant form of entertainment, as it generates more money than music and movie industry combined? Everyone is playing today on their phones, consoles or computers as the games are getting better. The adult games have been around for decades, but their rise of popularity came in the last couple of years. The main reason is the level of interactivity. While adult videos can be incredibly hot, you are still a passive viewer. It’s different in games, as you are the one controlling the situation. Even better, you can live the fantasies that are impossible in real life.

Still, online adult games are different from your typical video games, as they don’t require particular skills. The idea is for you to have control and relax while playing them, knowing you can’t go wrong. There are more complex adult games though if you are willing to immerse yourself more and spend hours playing them either solo or with other players. These games come in different forms, but again, you have a choice. Are you into cute anime chicks that look barely legal, or would you like to interact with 3D modeled girls that are almost photorealistic? As the number of games increases, everyone should be able to find something to their likings.

Things get even better, as these online adult games will work on your phone, tablet, or PC. You don’t need the latest graphics card or powerful CPU, as a decent internet connection is the only requirement. You’ll be playing these games in your browser, so you don’t need to install anything. That is great if you are concerned about your privacy. We said these games are not hard, and part of it is because the control system is simple. You’ll use mouse for the interaction, so in a couple of minutes, you’ll already know what to.

So, are there any online adult games you can play for free? Well, almost all of them won’t cost you a penny so you can start playing now. The idea is to try it out, and if you like it, you could purchase additional content in the form of microtransaction. They are here to make your progression faster, for example, if you don’t have much time to play. After a hard day of work, the idea of spending a few dollars on your favorite adult game to have even more fun does sound appealing. Still, that is only optional. If you are a dedicated player, you won’t have to spend a dime on seeing everything that game offers.

This all sounds interesting, but what games to play? There are so many of them, and you don’t have time to spend hours searching for the right one. Luckily, here you can find Best Online Games sorted by categories, and you can read reviews and quickly choose which one is worthy of your time. Take a few minutes to look and start having fun!

Autonomous Cars

Ready or Not, Autonomous Cars are Coming: We are well past the point of autonomous vehicles being a fad. With several production cars around the world already coming from the factory with partial automation features, manufacturers, ride sharing companies, and rental car companies are in an all-out race to lead innovation in autonomous vehicle technology. That intense competition will also lead many to take risks.

 

Auto Insurers Betting on Autonomous to Decrease Frequency of Accidents: Auto insurers have already begun factoring the growth of autonomous and semi-autonomous technologies, such as forward collision warning with autobrake, adaptive headlights, and blind spot assist into future claims projections. In general, the industry is betting on autonomous technology to ultimately decrease the frequency of accidents, but not the severity of accidents that do occur.

 

You Are Being Recorded: One of the most interesting implications of the autonomous vehicle movement on the P&C insurance industry is the vast amount of data that is being collected by these technologies. According to a new studyconducted by J.D. Power in collaboration with Miller Canfield and Mcity, nearly three fourths (74%) of consumers say they are willing to share autonomous vehicle data after a collision, potentially giving insurers broad access into the details surrounding a crash and the ability to expand the current telematics offerings they currently have in place, which offer discounts to safer drivers. According to J.D. Power data, these telematics-powered offerings have been associated with high levels of insurance customer satisfaction.
