Now-a-days many computer users make their systems a complete piece of junk just because they don’t know that essential things can be done just by using some software rather than trying a whole bunch of software to pile up computer with messy data.

This guide can be used to speed up any version of Windows, especially Windows 10.
1. CCleaner – A good program to Clean Junk Files and Speed Up Windows:
CCleaner a worthy software when it comes to its speed. Its correct usage can offer a smoother experience of computer than before.

The result is a faster computer experience running on Windows 10.
If you have to accidentally handed your laptop to any third-party then instead of opening every program and cleaning the history you can make use of this software. It promises to clean any cookies and browsing history left there-in.
This software can show you all those programs which run at every start-up. Therefore you can remove any unnecessary program which is not needed every time you start your laptop.
2. Ready Boost – Built In Windows 10 Software to Increase You System Speed:
Ready boost a most important feature. Microsoft team made this feature available in Windows Vista. It’s also available in the next released Windows versions. We know that it isn’t a third party software but it is a damn essential feature to be enabled when you are using Windows. It ensures a quick performance boost, in the case if you don’t have an SSD.

There you can dedicate your flash drive space to be used as cache drive which has faster writing and reading capabilities.

Antivirus software installation is the most essential step to be taken these days since spammers and attackers are more active then ever. You surely need a good piece of antivirus to make yourself secure from such bad attempts to breach your privacy by exploiting your system. Their are majority of antivirus software out their but our personal good experience is with Eset Smart Security. You can also try Microsoft Security Essentials.
The point being, whatever you go for, first read some reviews of users regarding the product. After making an idea about the reputation of antivirus and depending upon the sensitivity of your work, you should go for the best choice.

7-zip – Must have extraction and compression utility:
I don’t use this software so much but last time i used it and then found it to be equally useful as Winrar is for me. We being the internet users have to download a large number of files which are most of the times compressed in some archive format. To get the required files you need to decompress them once downloaded.
