So I have so much junk on my PC, starting to run quite slow. I did clear it out manually the other day (about 50GB removed) I have 1TB.

Is there any programs which can help with this apart from Cc cleaner as that does little to nothing. Any tips or tricks to speed up PC too? I try to clear up my temp and prefetch files every now and then. My hard drive has been defragged too.

Thanks guys

I'd invest in an SSD. They are cheap enough now and depending on your laptop make & model, should be easy enough to install.

If you're willing to do this, let us know a budget to work with and we'll find you an SSD.

Most perceived slowness is caused by a slow OS drive or running a bunch of software at startup.

Use Task Manager's Startup tab to remove startup items you don't need, use Control Panel to remove software you don't use, and use msconfig to disable services you don't need.

Re-installing Windows is also easy.

Using an SSD boot drive will make the biggest difference.

Get the Professional Edition of Advanced SystemCare 11.2, and go into settings and activate everything then just press Scan.

Installing more crappy software that will always be running is the exact opposite of what you want.

Crappy software? Last time i checked it cleans up my pc pretty good and my boot times are between 40 to 60 seconds, i don't have the best pc either. I also have Revo Uninstaller to fully uninstall software that i don't need.

Your computer is slow because you have four antivirus software suites running at once. Uninstall all of them and use Defender, which came with Windows.
