Hi. My computer is a crappy pile of junk but I do not have money to buy a better one right now.

Any tips on software that can make it less slow and awful?

I use Clean Master and it helps a little.

Any other good ones you guys would recommend?

I'd first start with cleaning the disc drive with Windows' internal tools (like Disk Cleanup - right click the HDD/SSD, click on Properties and and you should see that option). If that doesn't speed things up, consider backing up your stuff and reinstalling Windows.

A third method would be to look up CCleaner. I don't personally download 3rd party stuff to clean my drives (I often delete what's not needed and clean my disks with the above method), but I used to use CCleaner some moons ago and still hear good things about it.

Good luck. :)



                                                                                                                                                           

Whenever my computer starts to become an annoying piece of trash, I save everything unto a desk and restart it. Usually wipes out viruses, extra junk, etc etc and I get to put everything important back in

CCleaner is good if you're too scared to do what i do though

Sorry, not familiar with such software despite having looked at some options in the past. There's probably a few tricks that can help you, but nothing huge. If you've had Windows installed for a long time and remember it being faster, you can always try reinstalling Windows. It's a pretty big hassle if you have tons of stuff on your computer though, because it wipes your disk partition (i.e. you lose all the programs and files on a single partition, so you need to reinstall the programs and make backups of important files, and the backups need to be on another partition, such as a USB stick).

If it's really slow, I recommend installing some Linux distribution. I've noticed Linux Mint to be much faster than Windows on my current and previous laptops. If there's nothing Windows-specific you need, it's a great choice and very easy to use. Unfortunately, as is the case with installing any OS, it'll wipe your disk partition.



Try a Full system virus scan, than follow on with a Disk Clean up and Disk Defragmentation.

I do this with my Laptop all the time. It helps alittle.

Best would be to make a clean instal... To make a ghost copy of that... And save everything that can be on an external or secondary drive... If becomes slow again just reinstall the ghost image...



Aren't you a technical professional? Isn't that what you said to me before? What the actual fuck?

I think you are confusing me with another user, I am the weird christian brazilian guy, remember?
