First and foremost, make sure you have a virus scanner. Remember to update it and use it regularly, at least once a week. I've set it to start automatically at times when I probably won't be using my computer.
Remove games and programs that you no longer use. This is easy to do with the "Software" function in Windows. Since you don't use them, you can delete them and save space on your computer for something you do use.
Another easy way to easily and safely remove unwanted programs is to use a computer registry cleaner. Registry cleaners are usually quick and easy downloads.
See what's loaded onto your computer at startup. If your computer is taking a long time to start up when you turn it on, check the taskbar. Some examples of things you may not need to get started with are Quicktime and RealPlayer.
Delete old or invalid registry entries. Cleaning your registry will speed up and increase the performance of your computer. It will also clearly display error messages and freeze your computer.
