How To Prevent Your Windows Computer From Freezing

As a matter of fact, keeping your computer fast and healthy will take quite little of your time. Here’s what you need to do

Scan your computer with a malware program or antivirus.

If your computer is constantly freezing than it most likely hosts a malware program, an adware or a virus. A simple scan with specialized software will reveal the issue and usually solve it as well.

Get rid of programs that you don’t use.

Do this often and do it well. The best way to do it is to use specialized software like jv16 PowerTools X, which will completely remove all the files of an unused software along with registry entries that might slow down the computer.


Upgrade the hardware.

Sometimes it is not only about the software. If your computer is more than 5 years old then you might want to do an upgrade or even change it altogether. Computers are not designed to last more than 2 to 5 years, especially as technology advances so damn fast.


Reinstall the operating system.

Now this is kind of an extreme measure, but sometimes it is the only one that brings your old fast computer back. Before doing this though, go ahead and install jv16 PowerTools X and you will find that the painful and long process of reinstalling Windows might not be in fact necessary.

Defragment your hard disk.

When you defragment, files from the hard drive are arranged together again and it makes it easier for the computer to find them. It’s a long process usually, but you can leave the computer to it overnight in order to wake up to a faster system in the morning.

Clean up the registry.

The smartest way to do this is with the help of specialized software as cleaning it manually requires a little bit of knowledge. You might not understand a lot about registry cleaning, but trust us, it’s super important and will have a tremendous effect.


Don’t multitask so much

Windows freezes most of the times because it is used at its maximum but there’s no reason to do that. Can you really focus if you open 20 tabs in your browser while you have 10 other applications open at the same time? Hardly. You might be more productive when working in only two or three programs and the chances that Windows will freeze or slow down will be greatly diminished.
