Let me first start off by saying that there is a lot of BS on the internet when it comes to software to speed up your computer. There are tons of false claims out there for software stating that it will instantly speed up your computer and make it run so much faster. Well, you’ve been warned. Don’t believe the majority of those claims.
Over the years, there has been only a few pieces of software to speed up your computer that has gained my trust. Some of the computer software is free and some is not. There are a ton of free utilities out there that can do simple things to help raise your computer’s performance. The only problem with a lot of these free utilities is that there is typically a learning curve to using them.
In this post, I want to give you a few pointers on what to look look for in software to speed up your computer.
You should be able to make an informed purchase or at least know what you should look for in a piece of software that will build your computer’s performance to a level that satisfies you.
My first tip on software to speed up your computer is a warning against most of the spyware/adware programs that are on the market.
Most of these programs tout that they will be able to block all kinds of adware and spyware, but they fail to mention that they need to constantly run in the background and consume large amounts of memory while doing so. A good example of this is a program called Spy Sweeper. I have never had any luck with this program. It seems to be good at only one thing and that is slowing your computer to a crawl. Beware of these kinds of programs.
The best adware/spyware software to speed up your computer on the market today is Malwarebytes. The cool thing with Malwarebytes is that you can download and install it for free. You will be missing some of it’s key features, but it is still very useable. If you purchase the full program, you can basically set the program up on a schedule and not really ever have to mess with it again. It is a great piece of software and has saved many computer’s for me over the years.
