Tips and Tricks...
The most common problems I see involve a computer getting bogged down by applications running in the background. Sometimes the problems stem from all of the programs that are legitimately installed on the computer which are all trying to grab the same resources. Other times, the issue involves "spyware" or "malware". These are programs that install themselves while you are browsing the internet or installing other software, and track your activity on the computer.

So, there are two things to concentrate on in order to free up computer resources. First, we need to keep the programs from starting up. To do this, there are free utilities to do the job for us, and there are manual ways of cleaning up the problematic programs that the utilities may miss.
