Is Your Windows 7 Slow - Why should be so?
You have just installed (upgraded) to windows 7. Why does it seem so slow compared to your previous system. There are several reasons that you may find windows 7 slow. Here I discuss some of them.
Well, why is Windows 7 slow? Unfortunately, each new release of Windows, microsoft adds new functions, new functions add to the cost of processing power that computers need to process it. Proof of life! Consider how much the first version of windows took, a few megabytes. On Windows 7 today we are talking about several gigabytes.
If you find that Windows 7 slows down your computer it may be because your computer has a 32-bit processor. Windows 7 is optimized for 64-bit processors. Windows 7 also requires more memory to run efficiently plus extra disk space.
All in all if you have feel you have all the hardware that is necessary, and Windows 7 is still slow but you are upgrading from previous versions of windows and then all the problems you might have then may still apply (see my website at "Windows XP Slow Startup"). It can be a lack of disk space, the registry needs to be cleaned, low memory, low processing power and many others.
On my new website, I go into everything that can make Windows 7 slow. All of them apply to PC upgrades and new PCs with Windows 7 software new installation.
Other facts you should know is that Windows 7 running on a new PC with 64-bit programs designed to run on 32 bit processors and 64 bit processors. 32-bit, although it will run under Windows 7 will only run programs designed for 32-bit processor which is another reason to find your windows 7 slow as it has to run under a emulator. This is a piece of software that basically makes the program think it is running on a 32 bit processor.. However you will find that most programs have a 32-bit and 64-bit version. But some 64 bit programs designed today may not have a 32 bit version.
The main thing is to stop the window 7 gradually becoming slow over time. It is important to start a maintenance regime. This needs to be established to keep Windows 7 at its optimum. This means scheduling disk cleanup, disk defragmentation and what is important to clean your windows & registry file regularly with a registry cleaner.
