Defrag the harddrive, or do a format, they will always help speed the PC up.


If you haven't got a prebuilt PC (like Dell) than you can overclock a bit, but watch the temperatures, as you don't want to burn anything out.

There are programs like that, but they are loaded with Spyware and normally dont really do too much. Best you can do is defrag, uninstall stuff you dont need, run a scandisk, or you could format it. When you do that, that will be the fastest your computer will be running.
