QuickPCOptimizer (qPCo) is a complete performance toolbox that helps you speed up your PC just after a few clicks. In this guide, I’ll show you how you can use qPCo’s many features to your utmost ‘speed up’ advantage.
1. Run a Windows® registry scan.
First and foremost, run a registry scan and let qPCo automatically detect all the problems that are causing your system to slow down. qPCo delves deep into the registry, checking various things such as font entries, registry malware, sharred DLL entries, and other so this may take a while. Once the scan is complete, you’ll be shown a list of the registry problems found. From here, you can simply click the Fix Errors Now button to enable qPCo to fix all the problems in one go or you can choose to manually select which errors you want repaired and then click the Fix Errors Now button.
Note that before any repairs are done, a complete backup of your current registry settings are made by qPCo so you can always come back to it if you ever want to.
2. Defragment the Windows® registry.
Another way to speed up your PC is to defrag the Windows® registry. You see, the registry contains data and settings for all the hardware, software, users, and preferences of a specific PC and this data can be ‘scattered’ all over the registry. To enable the registry to perform more efficiently it makes sense that all data is easily accessible right? In short, if related date is close together, the registry need not spend time and effort going all over the place to perform a task that you want it to do.
3. Use the built-in speed up booster.
Unlike other tools, qPCo offers users the ability to speed up and optimize their systems in a customized way. Simply select the option that best descrivbes your computer and click Optimize. This section allows you to optimize PC memory and clock malicious ActiveX controls!
4. Uninstall unwanted programs on your PC.
One of the main reasons your PC is slow is because you simply have way too much software installed. Now you try to uninstall them but unknown to you, many of these programs actually leave behind parts of themselves on on your PC, which only consume disk space and – you guessed it – slow down your PC. qPCo’s uninstaller feature completely gets rids of programs you no longer want on your system.
5. Permanently delete documents.
For sure, you’ve got plenty of files and documents sitting around just gathering dust on your hard drive. If you’re not using them… ditch them as they just use up disk space and slow down your system. However, it’s understandable that you don’t want anyone else to be able to un-delete them just as easily as you’ve gotten rid of them, right?
Well, qPCo just happens to have a feature that allows you to completely erase one or more files, beyond recovery, using the latest security standards available today. The DoD (Department of Defence) standard implies 3 passes over each file to be called ‘completely erased’, the NSA standard implies 7 passes… qPCo supports up to 10 passes! (Note: a pass is equal to one overwrite of that file using random data.)
6. Clean your personal history.
As you browse online, you leave certain digital footprints all over the place. As such, it’s extremely important to clean your personal browsing history. It not only helps prevent id theft and data loss but it also helps speed up Internet browsing time.
7. Manage IE plugins.
Is launching and using Internet Explorer to browse the web slow? This is probably because it’s launching not one but several plugins behind-the-scenes. Use qPCo to un-register or delete any plugin that you don’t want lurking in the background while you’re online.
8. Manage StartUp programs.
PC startup takes forever? Just like the ‘hidden IE plugins’ there are probably a couple of programs that are all trying to launch or open as you start your computer. All of these applications are competing for attention as your system starts, making start up times sluggish. Use qPCo to check out which programs are trying to launch without your knowledge and… put them in their place!
PC’s eventually slow down because we use them a lot; call it ‘normal wear and tear’. But that doesn’t mean you can’t do anything to speed it up again. Follow the 8-point guide above and experience a faster, more efficient PC in minutes.
