How do I improve my system performance?

The system performance depends not only on the hardware configuration, such as the CPU load, memory usage and hard disk space. It is also directly connected to your software configuration and to your data management.

These are the main actions you can take with Bitdefender to improve your system's speed and performance:

Clean-up your PC

The PC Clean-Up improves the system performance by removing those files which are no longer useful, such as: temporary Internet files, cookies and the system temporary files.

To start the PC Clean-Up, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Bitdefender window.

  2. On the Tune-Up panel, click Optimize and select PC Clean-Up from the drop-down menu.

  3. Follow the wizard steps.

Clean Windows Registry

Cleaning the Windows Registry can improve the performance of your system. To do this, use the Registry Cleaner. The Registry Cleaner scans the Windows Registry and deletes the invalid registry keys.

To start the Registry Cleaner, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Bitdefender window.

  2. On the Tune-Up panel, click Optimize and select Registry Cleaner from the drop-down menu.

  3. Follow the wizard steps.

Defragment your hard disk

It is recommended to defragment the hard disk in order to access files faster and improve overall system performance. The Disk Defragmenter helps you reduce file fragmentation and improves the performance of your system.

To start the Disk Defragmenter, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Bitdefender window.

  2. On the Tune-Up panel, click Optimize and select Disk Defragmenter from the drop-down menu.

  3. Follow the wizard steps.

Scan your system periodically

Your system speed and its general behavior can also be affected by malware.

Make sure to scan your system periodically, at least once a week.

It is recommended to use the Full System Scan because it scans for all types of malware threatening the security of your system and it also scans inside archives.

To start the Full System Scan, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Bitdefender window.

  2. On the Antivirus panel, click Scan now and select System Scan from the drop-down menu.

  3. Follow the wizard steps.
