    Newly installed Windows 8 is running very slowly

    I am a PC user where i was using windows 7. I have used windows 7 for 1 year but never faced any speed related issue. Few days ago, my brother installed windows 8 on it.The installation process completed without any issue. However it is too much slow.Do you know,how to improve its accessing speed.

    Re: Newly installed Windows 8 is running very slowly

    Welcome and thanks for putting your query in this forum.You haven't provided enough details about the configuration of computer which makes it quite difficult for us to provide guidance. For proper functioning of windows 8, you must have following hardware configuration::
    1. Processor: 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster with support for PAE, NX, and SSE2
    2. RAM: 1 gigabyte (GB) (32-bit) or 2 GB (64-bit)
    3. Hard disk space: 16 GB (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)
    4. Graphics card: Microsoft DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM driver
    If you computer doesn't meet the above requirements then You can't improve the speed of windows 8. However if there is some other issue then you can fix the same by installing updates.For doing the same,press "Windows Key+C". It will open the "Charms Bar". Now click on "Settings">>"Change PC Settings">>WIndows updates. Now have a look on right pane and click on "Check for updates" or "Update" option.

    Hi,
    You can just do one thing:
    Goto MY COMPUTER.
    Now click on C:/ DRIVE.
    Now click on MANAGE.
    There click on CLEANUP.
    Now click on OK.
    This will clear out unnecessay old foles,Temporary files,cache from your system leading to increase in speed of the system gradually.
    You can also defrag your drivers.
    It in the MANAGe toolbar only.
    It s called FRAGMENTER.
    Click on it and fragment your drive.
    It will break the drive into various partition leading to increase in system speed.
    Hope this helps...
