    Basically it is saying that two things slow the computer down over time:

    1) Adding new software. Even if you uninstall stuff it leaves stuff in the registry and elsewhere that is all loaded up at startup whether or not you need it any more.

    2) General surfing. You end up with spyware and malware that runs in the background, cookies are created every time you sign up for a site etc. and all this is using up system resources as you use the computer. The advice in the penultimate paragraph about viruses and spyware is very good advice.

    Which reminds me, I really need to clean up some of my computers but it is boring and time consuming.

    Its quite straightforward really... it is going to try and sell you an application.


    It can help cleaning up your registry but it is not something to be attempted unless you really know what you are doing. Some applications can clean up your registry for you. There are some nice free ones out there... I've used ccleaner but you can see a list of others here*


    * Use them at your own risk though... I will not hold myself responsible for any consequences.

    Basically we have to ensure not to install too many softwares or uninstall the ones which aren't are in use. If you have ever wanted to know what are my Best Power Armors of Fallout 4 then you must definitely know it.
