When your computer’s speed and performance reduces gradually after installing a dozen programs or downloading junk data from the Internet, you could use optimizing tools such as Disc Cleanup in the Windows or other methods to achieve the performance.
Some of the tips to optimize Toshiba Satellite P500 laptops are described below:
- Delete Unused Programs
- Limit the Programs Runs at Start Up
- Turn Off Visual Effects
Delete Unused Programs
Sometimes manufacturer might have loaded some additional software packages with your computer system which you might not use. Those programs might be a trial version or limited edition versions. Whether you use it or not, it will take lots of space in your memory. That would reduce the memory and processor speed. So you could uninstall such unused programs that include both manufacturer installed ones and the programs installed by user.
Limit the Programs Runs at Start Up
Some application programs start automatically with the Windows start up without user’s intervention. These programs might be designed to work in the background so that user could not notice them. Most of these programs might be rarely or never used ones. This would slow down your system and take too much time to finish Windows start up. You should remove such programs from the memory.
You might have added visual effects in your system for getting good appearance for your Windows. But that would affect your Windows performance. If your computer is working fast enough, visual effects might not be a problem. Otherwise you need to turn off at least some of the visual effects. For this you would get 'Adjust Visual Effects' option from the 'Performance Information' and 'Tools' section on the 'Control Panel' in your system.
