I have a compaq presario cq61, and would appreciate any tips on how to make it run faster. I'm far from an expert so I've basically been searching Google for tips. I recently used an avg clean up type program, but it hasn't really helped. I've been told to just go and buy a new laptop, but would like to see what I can do myself before spending money.
-Get a program called CCleaner - It cleans out old DLLs and unused files, but won't touch anything you have done unless you tell it to.
-Do a disk defragment.
-Clean out your downloads and recycle bin.
That's about the few really basic ways to make it run faster.
