Downloading has become an extremely popular thing to do – with millions of people downloading files, videos, movies and web pages every day. However, a growing sophistication of broadband has made many people used to the super fast download speeds that are common now… the only problem is that if these speeds slow down, it can be extremely annoying and frustrating.
The way to boost the download speeds of Windows is actually from being able to make your computer better able to process data. The biggest reason why downloads run slow is not from the general download speed or from the download server – it’s down to how fast (or slow) your own computer can process the data it needs to get from the Internet.
Not many people know this, but whenever you use your computer to download something off the Internet, it’s actually reading 100’s of settings and files to help it with this process. The big reason why your system is not able to download things quickly is because of it being unable to read the settings it needs in the fastest time. It’s often the case that many of the settings that Windows needs to run are saved in the wrong way, corrupting them and damaging them. This is a big problem because it forces your computer to take longer to read the files it needs, slowing it down profusely. That’s why many older computers seem to download files much slower than newer ones – because newer computers don’t have any corrupt / damaged settings to slow them down.
The way to make a computer download files quickly is to fix all the settings that could potentially be slowing it down. To do this, you should first download and install a “registry cleaner” which is a software tool that scans through your PC and removes any damaged or corrupted settings that could be causing it to run slow. After one of these tools has been installed, you should then let it scan your PC and fix any of the damaged or corrupted settings that it finds. This will make Windows much more reliable and fast, and will also give your downloads a considerable boost as well.
