There are a few things you can do. This is not a complete list BUT, it's where I would start.

  1. Add Remove Programs -- Uninstall any software you don't need. You can also use a tool for this if needed.
    • Over time, many things run in the background -- and you normally don't need all the junk. Go through and nuke anything you don't recognize or need.
  2. Free up your disk space by removing old no longer needed files.
    • Low drive space can cause a lot of issues on a system. Clean things up annually if possible.
  3. Disable startup apps you no longer need.
    • Some apps are useful but, if you don't need they to always run, remove them from the auto-startup.
  4. The best way to speed up an old system is to replace your hard drive with an NVMe Drive. These are cutting edge and in many cases, can extend the life of a system for years. This is my #1 recommendation. But, you will need to spend a little cash which is why I list it last.
