Answer

1) Clean up your Start Up section Stop all unnecessary programs from running at startup. There is no need to have any IM program running if you are not using them. Also stop loading from bootup programs that you only use sporadically Go to Programs>Startup Delete the icons --they are only shortcuts, not the programs.

2) Close unneccesary programs On the bottom right of your screen you will have all programs that start from bootup. Right click on any program you do not use and find a way to stop it from loading on startup (usually under options or preferences).

3)Run Disk Cleanup and Disk Defragmenter that you find on your computer at Programs>Accessories>System Tools>. I recommend that you restart your computer before doing this to be sure that everything is closed - it is more convenient.

4) If the Internet is slow, delete the browsing history: In the Internet: History>Clear Recent History or Tools>Delete History. Make sure cookies is included in the items you delete, along with temporary files.

5) If you have had the computer for some time and this has just started after you have added software, you may have exceeded the capabilities of the memory on your computer. You might buy more memory since memory is cheap these days. If you can spare $30-50 then you can upgrade your memory. This will get you the most performance gain. Make sure you know the memory type your motherboard will support before you purchase memory--you need slots to install the memory card. You may need help on this step--

3) CAUTION: Download a program You can find programs at download.com that will help to optimize your system (memory, registry, etc.) Check out the reviews and download one that has a free trial. If you like it you can buy the program. Some of the free trials limit what is available unless you purchase the full version.

5) Change the MB settings for memory speed You can jack up the speed at which your memory is accessed, although I do not recommend novices trying this. Doing this could burn out your memory.

Most programs used on your computer take up several megabytes of space on your hard drive.

No a megabyte (mb) is a made up of 1000 kilobytes (kb) therefore 1572 kb is definetly not more than 27.24 megabytes (mb)

That depends on the computer. The typical run-of-the-mill computer on the store shelves today will have: 1 gigabyte of system RAM (1024 megabytes) 256 to 512 megabytes video RAM 250 to 500 gigabytes of hard disk space (256000 to 512000 megabytes) and a DVD-RW drive capable of writing up to 8.5 gigabytes per disc (8700 megabytes) And dont forget up to 12 megabytes cache built in to the cpu.

These are the units for measuring the digital information you will download or store on your phone/computer ect. Kb stands for kilobyte and just over 1000Kb make up one Mb. MB stands for megabyte and is made up of approximately 1000 bytes. About 1000 megabytes makes up one GB - as in gigabyte.

well you go on my computer then you see all the space left in all the discs e.g local disc c and then add all the disks space up and you get how much mb,gb is left on your computer

The Clean My PC product which is available from MacPaw can help someone clean viruses from their computer which slow the computer down. Diagnosing and getting rid of these viruses will help speed up your computer.

It might help but there are oten more problems like adware that needs to be removed.

Each MB (megabyte) is usually taken as 1024 KB, each KB is 1024 bytes. So, a MB is a little more than a million characters (in the traditional ASCII character set - Unicode often takes up more space).Each MB (megabyte) is usually taken as 1024 KB, each KB is 1024 bytes.

Any common household cleaner can be used on the outside of the computer.

It takes about -- 9.83 MB (10,318,162 bytes) At least that's what my computer says.

Rub a magnet on the hard drive, this should clean it.

You must understand what RAM is. RAM is random access memory, which means that the higher the RAM, the faster applications can be opened upon starting up the computer, and the faster the computer will start up. Plus, you must know what kilobytes, megabytes, and gigabytes are. 1 mb = 1000 kb 1 gb = 1000 mb

If you define clean up in destructor garbage collector will take more time to clean up the objects and more and more objects are created in Gen 2..

Because it is not using common sense

Clean up the computer of some of the unnecessary stuff like temporary folders.

The function of the disk clean up is to free up space on the hard drive of a computer by finding and deleting unnecessary files. Performing a disk cleanup also allows the computer to run faster.

At least once a year open it up and clean out all the dust.

There are technically 1,440,000 bytes that make up 1.44 megabytes. The floppy disk that used to be used to hold data for a computer was labeled as a 1.44 mb disk, although it actually held 1,474,560 bytes.

Megabytes (MB) are made up of 1,000,000 (1 million) bytes

User Avatar

For most computer-based devices, a byte is a single unit of computer memory or storage large enough to hold 1 single regular character. (In some languages such as Japanese Kanji, it can take 2 or more bytes for a single character.) Roughly a thousand such bytes make up a kilobyte (KB) and roughly a thousand kilobytes make a megabyte (MB.) (Because computes are based on powers of two, it's actually 1024 bytes for a kilobyte and 1024 kilobytes for a megabyte.)

I doesn't use up any megabytes!

20 mb so about 2000kb to clean up PC go to programs accesories then disk clean up and it will empty unused files like temporary internet files and the same thing but choose disk defragment to compress files to make more room

One song usually takes up about 6 megabytes. This means that 942 mb can hold around 157 songs. This is on average, longer songs may take up more space, while shorter songs take up less.

Minecraft takes up about 200 MB.

it all depends on your computer really, your internet doesn't affect the speed of firefox at all. if you do want to speed your computer up do the following a disk clean up (cleans up all the unnecessary files) a registry clean up does amazing things to speed your computer up and in experience its faster than internet explorer, plus safer
