9 Scan for viruses

A slow PC could be symp­to­matic of a virus, so make sure you scan it – and re­move any in­fected files – reg­u­larly. Win­dows De­fender, which comes with ev­ery ver­sion of Win­dows since Win­dows 8, does a good job. Free al­ter­na­tives in­clude AVG (www.avg.com/) and Mal­ware­bytes (www.mal­ware­bytes.com). Re­mov­ing viruses will speed up our PC and pro­tect your pri­vacy!

10 Ad­vanced mea­sures

Your PC should now be run­ning fast again. If not, it’s time for ad­vanced mea­sures. First, clean up your registry with CCleaner (www.pir­i­form.com/ccleaner), which will re­move in­valid and out­dated Win­dows Registry en­tries, as well as left­over files from unin­stalled apps. If that doesn’t help, try re­in­stalling or re­fresh­ing Win­dows. No dice? Then it’s time to up­grade your hard­ware.
