Does your computer take forever to load programs or change pages when you are surfing the Internet? Have you ever been in the middle of writing an email and it freezes, forcing you to reboot and lose all your work?

There are few things more frustrating than a slow computer, but it doesn’t need to be that way. Having a professional look at your system can be costly and buying a new computer is often unnecessary.

There are some steps that you can follow to keep your system running at its best.

  1. Limit open programs and windows.
  2. When in doubt, reboot.
  3. Use a registry cleaner.

The most common causes are the installation and removal of software, online games, application crashes, and upgrades of software programs. While many errors will go unnoticed, the more errors your computer has, the greater the chance that you will experience trouble.

But there is something proactive you can do to protect your system:
install a one-click tool called Advanced Registry Optimizer 5 (ARO 5) that will scan, identify, and repair errors.

ARO 5 was awarded 4 stars in May 2007 from CNET’s Download.com editorial staff: ‘ARO will clean your computer’s clock and keep it ticking.’

Still not convinced? Sammsoft, a Washington State software company, offers free trials of their ARO 5 software.

Once installed, the program will do a complete scan and diagnosis of your computer’s registry and tell you how many errors are present. It will then fix the first 20 problems completely free of charge.

There’s no catch. The company is confident you will love the personal version of ARO 5 so much you will consider purchasing the unlimited commercial system, which retails for $29.95.
