Ensure that your machine is compatible to load and run Windows 7.
Change the Power Plan To Maximum Performance in the Control panel.

Good to know that Microsoft is benevolent to Windows 7 users, it has armed the system software with PC optimization tools. Lets’ see how to execute those and fix slow computer issues:
Use the Disk Cleanup tool to create more space on hard-disk. It removes temporary Internet files, deletes downloaded program files, such as Microsoft ActiveX controls and Java applets, clears Recycle Bin and removes Windows temporary files, such as error reports. It can also clear off optional Windows components and unwanted programs that you no longer use.
Run Disk Defragmenter at regular intervals (weekly is optimal) to keep your programs and files organized on the system hard-disk. Check the integrity of the files running the Error Checking utility. It scans and detects bad sectors for file system errors and provides quick solutions to fix those.
If viruses and spyware are ruining your PC performance, then its time to scan its memory resources running the Microsoft Security Essentials, a free yet effective tool to get rid of those culprits. Make sure to keep Windows Update enabled which brings security patches to fix any software glitch.
Say, thanks to Microsoft. Now, you don’t need a PC repair technician to address frequent computer issue.
