So many computer problems are caused by dust in the hardware and cluttered code in the software. Anyone can make their computer run faster and last longer by following the steps in our new infographic.

Many computer users who want to speed up PC performance don't realize how truly easy it is. In its latest company blog post, the owners of the PC Health Boost software show how to prevent screen freeze, computer crashes, and other dangers via an infographic that shows how to clean up PC problems, both physical and otherwise.

"Most people don't realize how much good you can do for your computer, just by cleaning it," says Erin Walsh, Boost Software's Director of Public Relations.

"So many computer problems are caused by dust in the hardware and cluttered code in the software. Anyone can make their computer run faster and last longer by following the steps in our new infographic."

Some computer owners have noticed the kind of dust that can collect around fan vents. This dust can do more than just upset allergies. It can blow into a computer's inner workings and slow down or short out circuit boards. Even worse, it can slow down or clog a fan until the computer overheats!

But what most people don't know is that a computer's software works in much the same way. The Windows operating system depends on thousands of small files to keep it operating properly. These files aren't full programs—but they are vital to every program's ability to function.

Boost teaches you how to fix both of these. But what about those little files? Why are they so important to clear out and, when necessary, fix or replace?

These files are part of the dynamic link library, the "switchboard" of Microsoft Windows that keeps all of Windows' parts working in the proper order. The dynamic link library also directs third-party programs—games, media software, and even Microsoft Office—as to when and how they should operate.

When these files are missing, a computer's programs, or even Windows itself may not work like they should. But these files may also pile up via out-of-date software versions, files left over from uninstalled programs, and corrupted or even malicious files, "pieces" of viruses that antivirus programs sometimes leave behind.

These extra files can confuse or even damage a computer, leading to a computer crash, screen freeze, or even the dreaded "Blue Screen of Death".

"We put together this easy-to-follow visual guide so that anyone can clean up and speed up PC performance, even if they consider themselves completely non-technical," says Walsh.

The visual guide was posted to the official PC Health Boost blog on Saturday, August 17. It will remain there for the life of the site.

PC Health Boost is a PC optimization software designed to clean up PC hard drives and the Windows Operating system, as well as prevent future disasters (such as screen freezes and computer crashes). The developers at Boost Software spend a year-and-a-half, as well as over $100,000 dollars in development costs (outside of salaries) to produce this flagship software.
