Cleaning the notebook from unwanted programs
Buying a new computer with a fresh install of the operating system, we wonder how quickly and well it works. All programs are set up and displayed instantly, the system tray is not clogged with notifications, no system errors and sudden reboots.
But is it worth inadvertently download and install unknown software, as it all disappears. Everywhere pop-up advertising messages, changes the start page of all browsers and on the desktop there are shortcuts that may have to do with the fact that we have loaded.
So you should be extremely cautious to any content downloaded from the network. Special attention should be paid to free apps. During installation, do not rush to click «next» and «finish» and carefully read what is written, and remove pins with unnecessary options.
But over time, the computer or laptop inevitably accumulates a large number of software and files that lie dormant and only eat system resources. So from time to time it is necessary to carry out regular cleaning of the OS.
What does the cleaning
First, the clean frees up space on your hard drive. Removed unnecessary and unused files that clog up your system and slow down its work. In addition, deleting unnecessary FOR frees some memory.
Each application occupies a certain space in memory, and if the new process is started, its volume is not enough, some processes are migrated to virtual memory on the hard disk. Naturally, with this complicated access to this data, and this leads to a slowdown of work. Due to clearing in the RAM will run only the necessary processes.
Cleaning is possible manually or automatically:
- Manual mode. To clean the laptop from unnecessary programs and files manually, you can use the built-in OS tools, such as the master of uninstallation of the Windows. The registry cleaner has a built-in editor. The manual approach allows you to approach the cleaning process with caution, carefully looking through the trash before you delete it.
- Auto mode. To perform purification with the press of a button, you need specialized software.
The advantage of such funds is thorough and complete deletion of unnecessary data. So, in one fell swoop to fix the registry, uninstall programs and clear browser cache.

When heavily infested system, this process may take a couple of hours.
