One of the most common complaints that I hear from people is that their computer has suddenly started to run very slowly and I must admit, as a computer user myself, I regularly experience a slow down in the operating speed of my own PC, but I simply don't put up with it ! Not when it is so easy to speed it back up again.
There are several reasons why your computer might be running slowly, but the most common is that your computer system is clogged up with unnecessary data that is serving no purpose and can be safely removed from your system.
There are many free "Speed up your PC" programs and internet services and I have already recommended several of them in previous Tic Top Tip articles, but last week, I came across a web site - www.comodo.com who, amongst several other free security, anti virus and firewall products, offer a free system cleaner and I thought that I would give it a try and I can report that it is easy to use and very good.
If you feel that your PC is running a lot slower than it should, why not give it a try ?
Visit their web site and click on the "Free Products" link on the left of the page before clicking on the "Comodo System Cleaner" link on the right of the linked page.
Click "Free Download" then, "Download" and "Save" before choosing a location for the 10MB file and clicking "Save" again. Wait for the file to download and when it finishes, click "Open Folder".
The downloaded file should be highlighted in the folder. Double click on it before selecting a language and clicking "OK" (the default language selected is English). Read and if you agree, accept the terms of the agreement by clicking "I Agree".
The installer will select a location automatically but if you wish, you can click "Browse" to change the location before clicking "Install".
During the installation process, you will be asked to provide your email address and opt-in to receive news about other Comodo products (you don't have to unless you really want to - just click "Next" on the appropriate screen) before clicking "Finish" to complete the installation. Comodo will automatically complete a first-time scan of your computer system.
You should find the "Comodo" icon on your desktop - launch the application by clicking on the icon.
Comodo gives you a summary of the state of your computer and tells you whether your computer is clean or, not.
The application is pre-configured with recommended settings and you can run it without tweaking anything.
As you scroll through the menu on the left, "issues" that the program has discovered with your computer system are listed in the window on the right and you are provided with a list of options and the opportunity to "clean" the "issues".
You can clean your computer system's registry, delete any "Privacy " related data from your computer and remove any obsolete files from your computer's hard disk drives. There is also an option to force the application to delete certain data and use the program's "Shredder" feature to completely remove files and folders, a disk partition or, an entire hard disk drive. Don't use either of these features without first reading the complete set of operating instructions which can be found here
At the top of the application's window, you will see "Settings", a click reveals the "General" section, where you can configure some of the program's parameters. Default settings are already selected, but you can change these and save the new settings. For example, you can opt to run the Comodo application automatically when your operating system starts.
In the "Backup" section, you can choose a location for the backup files that the application saves during a clean-up operation. You can compress and save the backup file and password protect it.
I have configured my free copy of Comodo to run automatically every time my operating system starts and I must say, my PC has speeded up considerably since I started using it. They do several other free related products and I am tempted to give them a try too !
