How to Make a Computer Run Faster With a Free Download

by KarlL

You can make your computer run faster using free software. Disk-cleaning software detects unused or unnecessary programs and files and removes them from your hard drive. Another program that can help speed up your PC is a system-defragmenting process, which removes fragmented files, old data and broken files, and compresses all other files. "PC Tune-Up 2.0" and "CCleaner 2.35.1223" are both free software downloads capable of performing these processes.
