Computers toward performance


One of the most versatile multifunction technology is computer. We uses computer in majority of our daily chores. So, we can see that every personal computer or laptop will reflect the characteristic of the user. Abstract user will usually 'decorates' their computer while the simple minded prefer to avoid that. Most girls tend towards abstract more, while the guys tend to the other side.

As to me, I prefer to maximize my computer's performance instead of it looks. Besides, simple looks it what I call pretty. Towards improving the performance, we need to get focused on important thing only, which is what we uses most. I spend my day mostly on internet and playing games. Therefore to whom which has the same interest, may share with me what you have done :D


The most important thing for a computer is surely an antivirus, which guarded us from unnecessary security risk. Paying for an antivirus for me is quite a 'waste' as I'm not exposed to a very high risk. Therefore I look for a free antivirus available. For 2 years now, I stick to Avira antivirus free. It has done a good job till now.


Other than antivirus, the next best thing is of course an internet browser for facebookers like me. Among the browsers, google chrome is like a haven for internet surfers. It is simple, yet very fast for simple task like loading a normal weighted page. Searching on google also easy, as you only have to type in the address bar what you want to search on google. No need to find google.com first like before. It is also fitted with many hotkeys like f5 for refreshing, and is very easy to get used to, from adding tabs, bookmarking and setting the option. You can set your chrome to open homepage, your own desired websites, or even the last page you visited as chrome is started. If you just closed your chrome with many tab on, you just have to open chrome back an all the tab will be open as before. Very easy. You can also change its look to different them if their
looks bored you.


After an internet browser, I will need a download manager to help me download large files easily. DAP ( Download Accelerator Plus is what I have chosen from the day I got my laptop. It is easy to learn, an act automatically. For normal speed connection, it acts like 5 computers downloading different fragments, therefore resulting in faster download. The downloads will be stored on a specific file. This helps me a lot in downloading anything from the web.

For a different kind of downloading, which people call it torrent, I have my own torrent client. Torrent is a shared file of anything from everyone from the world. In example, if you are looking for a movie, search for the movie on the torrent portal and if it exist, you will download a small file called torrent. Starting the torrent using your torrent client will start pc to pc sharing across the world. You will download the torrent bit by bit from seeders(who have 100% of the file) and peers(who have <100% of the file) until it completes. I uses u torrent.

For last tweak for performance, defragmenting is important to make sure your files is organized according the importance of it ( how many times do you uses it). Defragmenting will greatly improves the performance of computers if you haven't done so. However, defragmenting with latest windows is sometimes difficult to see the results. Having a specific software to defragment like smart defrag will helps, as you can see visually how the documents is defragmented. It will also tells you in the end the percent of fragments you have. Having this software will helpt you defragment occasionally to ensure your computer is in top performance.

Besides software, you can do more by helping to ease up your computer's work. Partition of computers ( drive c d etc) must be well organized. Recommended options is to install any software you have into the system drive, usually c, while your files, pictures, videos, music and etc will be stored into another. Therefore the weight on computer is reduced.

This is my tips for you all, more tips and tricks can be found at download.cnet.com. All the software you need is also available there.
