There aren't many more frustrating things than the computer running slow. Spending minutes at a time waiting for your laptop to load up a simple web page or Microsoft Office program can make even quiet colleagues want to throw their computers in the bin hard.

Poor performance can be the result of disk fragmentation, registry errors, corrupt system files, unnecessary services running, not enough RAM, and failure to clear browser cache. As you use your system it becomes clogged with more files and programs and has an undoubted tendency to slow down so cleaning and regular maintenance is crucial.
