I have added my pc info for you all to see, (actually saves me from writing it all ). I would like some info on how to speed up my computer, and the truth behind all those registry cleaner`s/memory optimizes/"speed up my pc" software. Quite simply, do they really work? My pc has got really sluggish, and the boot up time was under a minute. Now it`s like 1m 48s. To start with, i do have Nox Player. However, when i open that up,let`s just say, a snail moves faster. In a typical game, it takes about 25 seconds for the move i made, to take effect. Even when Nox is not running, the whole computer runs slow. Remember that snail ? I do have the freeware version of CCleaner and i do use that. The temp files are alway`s cleaned out, as well as the system files. My pc gets de fragmented once a month. After all that, it is still slow, (the computer, not the snail ) lol. Finally, i do bring up Task Manager, and check to see what is running in the background.Nox has a habit of doing that, when it`s not being used. Can anyone tell me, what can i do, (in layman`s terms), to speed up my pc, and does software that i previously mentioned, really work? Thanks.
