Your computer has low RAM, and as a result you will have limited ability to multitask. To correct this, you will want to follow some of the steps below to speed up your computer.

Start with getting rid of applications you don't use.

It just won't start up with your computer.

Another thing you can do to make Windows faster is to use software to speed up your computer. The following two applications are both good choices:

  • CCleaner: This program cleans up all of your browser history, temporary files and cookies, and also it removes all the log files, recent documents and unused registry entries. You can download CCleaner here.
  • SpeedUpMyPC: Just like CCleaner, this software cleans up your PC, but it also searches your computer for speed issues and fixes them. You can download SpeedUpMyPC here.
