Add an SSD disk to the machine?? That's the best thing you can do to make it fast..

First make sure you have enough RAM. Then make sure you don't load software at bootup which you don't need to run all the time. Use a good AV utility that doesn't use too much resources. If the PC is for private use, I can recommend the free panda antivirus. Also make sure your PC is malware free.

Additionally, an SSD can help speed up things.

Boot fast and fast performance are different things.

It takes time to load all the services that Windows uses, but if the services (and underlying applications) are set up properly, they help a machine work well and only consume memory.

As noted above a faster drive will help. I use a 500Gb 7200 rpm drive in my Windows 8.1 machine and it is a fast machine.

To maintain any machine, delete temporary files (causes overhead in IE and Office). Run Disk Cleanup to do that. Defrag the hard drive occasionally. Use Disk Defrag for that.

Scan for viruses. Viruses can seriously slow down a machine.

Not to be a douche, but isn't this the 1 million dollar question? IMHO there is no good or wrong answer. Other than the inevitable don't fill your computer with crap and buy A class hardware.

Also, what is the definition of "speed up".. As a workstation admin I noticed that a lot of people have a very different idea of the concept "a fast machine"".. Some people actually believe that a machine is slow when the startup is slower then their tablet can get out of sleep..

3:- Fast response if am clicking any application ex: If i click on word it open rather than start moving in circle.

4:- Take less time in shutting down.

1. Boot time is a function of processes and generally does not matter. Operating speed is more important.

2. Pop ups are either (1) part of your application and live with it, or (2) viruses if you get random pop ups. Scan for viruses as we noted earlier.

3. As I suggested twice now, delete temporary files, defrag the hard drive.

4. More difficult. Test shutting down running tasks before shutting down to see it some task is in the way.

5. If you move your computer (if it is a laptop) suspend to move, not shut down, start up.

My machines are vastly better than what you paint, so look for viruses.

As I mentioned, don't automatically load stuff ylou don't need, and use a good AV tool. With msconfig you can disable services and utilities from loading automatically at bootup. And again, scan for malware.

Or re-install the OS so you have a fresh system.

All above are excellent suggestions.  There is a trade off,  as was noted,  performance versus startup speed. You can do something as simple as change the windows theme to windows basic (classic). My computer-> hardware-> performance set it to best performance. User ccleaner. Check out Glary utilities as well.

MAKE A BACKUP BEFORE PERFORMING ANY CHANGES!

for boot time - use this 10 step guide :  http://lifehacker.com/5821865/top-10-ways-to-speed-up-windows-boot-time
for speeding up Windows 7; use this guide :  http://www.techrepublic.com/blog/10-things/10-ways-to-speed-up-windows-7/

***note that installing an SSD will do MUCH better than all this...

A good and effectively quick measure of how your PC will perform is to take a look at your total process count (Ctrl-Shift-Esc). Aim to get this to 40 or less and you are virtually guaranteed optimal performance with minimal boot times. Getting process count that low involves:-

1, Removing unwanted programs
2. Minimise auto-start-up items
3. Disable non essential services
4. Delete non essential tasks in task scheduler.

A helpful guide on non-essential services can be found here

I recommend taking the "Safe" option.

Winpatrol plus had a nice delay start section as well as a section on startup items.  The best startup items optimizer I have found for free is autoruns (Google it and click on the link to download from Microsoft).

The author wanted suggestions that did not cost money. With that in mind, I suggest a split.

MikeSun: http:#a40292468
Nobus:  http:#a40292008
Thinkpads_User:  http:#a40290113

If the author is not agreeable, then I suggest Delete.

if you split nothing "suggestions that did not cost money" we get zilch

rindiCommented:
I'd add mine as it contains everything needed to get a system to run faster: http:#a40290055

But basically, the author didn't do much in communicating with us, nor did he tell us what he had already tried and what didn't work. So with these very limited details this Questions stays extremely basic and has very little value for the PAQ. I'm sure there are plenty answered of Questions in there of the same type which have much more value than this one, and so in my opinion it should be deleted, unless of course the Asker decides to come back and give more feedback...

Acting the way you are acting now sjhabth is really a good guarantee to not be helped at all anymore. You do know people are volunteers here and are actually trying to help you?? To be honest I didn't do as much as all others because IMHO these questions never have a really clear answer as performance is subjective.

But there were people here that tried their best to help you and went the extra mile. Reacting like this and just accepting an answer that has nothing to do with the actual question is just being a douche.
