Computer Repair Topic: When Should Your Computer’s Operating System (OS) be reinstalled?
Almost all computers should have the operating system reinstalled occasionally. This can be a great cure for a slow computer.
- Startup programs. As you add software to your computer, some of those programs are added to the startup process. This slows down your computer’s startup. These programs also slow down your computer by running in the background.
- Security suites. These used to be all the rage, but are very problematic also. Incorrectly installed, configured or certain types of security suites can be disastrous for your computer performance.
- PC cleaning tools like security suites are largely unnecessary and hog system resources and most tear up your software environment rather than provide any real performance benefits. These are frequently added to the startup process, too.
- Various junk and junk software. Over time, poorly written programs can fill up the registry with irrelevant entries and create useless DLL files. A well-written program does a good job of cleaning up after itself’; poorly-written programs do not.
A fresh reinstall of your computer’s operating system will preserve your files and eliminate many of the issues that are causing your computer to slow down.
