Hi! When I bought a new computer with Windows 10, the system is very fast. The same happens when formatting and installing the system from scratch. However, as time goes by, the computer tends to slow down. It even seems that there is a ballast that prevents it from running fast. Well, this is usually caused by the programs installed on the computer. Certainly, there are many programs available today. Many of them are commonly used by users. For example, web browser, office suite, player or antivirus. On the other hand, there are also specific programs according to the needs of each user. So, read on to find out how Windows slows down when installing more programs.
How installed programs slow down Windows.
As mentioned, the programs are very useful. However, some users install all kinds of programs. Worst of all, they often do not use them. As a result, the computer runs slower. As a result, the computer runs slower. Therefore, it is an action to avoid. As a result, the computer runs slower. Therefore, it is an action to avoid.
Obviously, all installed programs will have an impact on the operation of the system. This happens for several reasons. First, all the programs will take up space on the hard disk or SSD. Now, if it is a lightweight program then the impact will be small. On the other hand, when they are heavy programs, the situation changes. Since they all add up space and increase data fragmentation. Therefore, the computer becomes slower.
Programs often generate lots of data.
On the other hand, programs consume RAM memory. Obviously, they usually reserve memory when they are used. However, some programs consume memory and CPU, even when they are not used. For example, some processes are loaded at Windows startup. Similarly, others remain active in the background looking for updates. Consequently, the more RAM the programs use, the slower the computer will run.
Some programs generate large amounts of temporary and cache files. This is the case of web browsers and some multimedia editors. In addition, this data is stored on the hard disk. This has a negative impact on system performance. But in addition, all this information must be loaded when the program is started. Therefore, it considerably increases the loading time of the program. But in addition, all this information must be loaded when the program is started. Therefore, it considerably increases the loading time of the program. For example, Spotify can generate up to 10 GB of cache on the hard disk. Additionally, Chrome can store up to 2 and 3 GB depending on the time of use.
Some programs are more harmful than others.
Certainly the programs differ from each other. Their impact depends on the type of program and how they have been developed. Indeed, it is not the same to use a light and private browser that usually deletes browsing data. Then using Edge or Chrome. Nor is it the same to use a heavy software like Adobe Premiere, versus another OpenSource video editor. On the other hand, not always free software can be better. For example, LibreOffice, consumes more resources than Microsoft Office. In any case, it is necessary to install only the programs you need. Besides, it is always advisable to keep them always updated. Since as we have seen, Windows slows down when installing more programs. Bye!
