Your current visual-effects settings could be negatively affecting your computers performance. Learn how to optimize these settings and speed up your computer. 

Clean up Your Disk

Running Disk Cleanup will delete "garbage" files that your computer no longer needs. Doing this will free up some space on your computer. 

Schedule Your Hard Drive to be Defraggmented

When you save or delete files, it creates unused "bubbles" of space on your harddrive. Defragging forces out these "bubbles" of space to improve the efficiency of your hard drive.
