4. There must be too many programs start up automatically when you start your computer.Run a registry optimizer or cleaner to stop those unnecessary start-up programs. And remove useless programs
5. Put programs on other drivers ,not C driver, because commonly C is for operating system. And defrag hard disks every 2 months.
6. do not run too many programs at one time
7. add RAM or do a fresh reinstall of windows. Before you do a reinstall, please remember to back up.However, you should know that frequent reinstall is harm to hard disk.
