"My PC is very slow and I don't know why." Surely you have said this phrase on many occasions. It is very unpleasant when our team does not respond as we would like. However, in most cases the problem is ours, even if we don't realize it. For this reason, we bring you 5 common mistakes that we make and that slow down the PC.

Google Chrome and RAM
We have spoken many times about Google Chrome and its consumption of RAM . If we were to pull the simile with the most famous kite in the world, we would tell you that Pac-Man is Google Chrome and the points are your Ram Memory.
The browser is fatal optimized, so the more tabs you open, the less RAM your computer has . Our advice is simple: go saving the websites you like and do not leave anything open above. For the good of your team.
Many programs, chaos
As with Google Chrome, if you run many programs simultaneously, your team will ask for a break. If this is added that some other software requires more or less memory, as well as processor, then the finish is formed.
For example, having Google Chrome with Adobe Photoshop or a video game in the background is a real bomb. Besides, you're going to overheat it ... and that's a problem.
Remove startup programs
Many of the programs we use regularly run when the PC starts up. This leads to many performance problems, as they remain in the background and we are not aware on numerous occasions.
Removing them is very simple, so much so that it is only necessary to enter the Task Manager (Ctrl + Shift + Esc) and click on “Start”. There, go deactivating all those that may be secondary, such as Spotify, Dropbox, Skype, etc.
The PC is also cleaned
This may seem like a little joke, but it is not at all. Remember to clean your PC regularly. Having a team full of dust causes overheating problems and a malfunction .
As an example we tell you a case that happened to us: our graphics card was full of dust and turned off when the game required a greater pull (made more use). It was clean and ready, as if nothing had happened.
Remove what you don't use
The last point is a classic. Remove everything you will not use on the PC , from programs to files. Having them there picking up “dust” - another type of dirt - only serves to make the hard drive suffer a little more, as well as the processes take a little longer to run.
Remember from time to time to delete temporary files, documents that you no longer use, etc.
