 Ø  Mozilla Firefox  – Mozilla Firefox is a fast, full-featured Web browser.

Ø  I also recommend you to download and scan your computer with a free antivirus software because in many cases the speed of your computer is affected by the viruses of your system. I will recommend you 3 free antivirus software but you should take into consideration to buy a licence because the free antivirus has limited protection .

 

1.     In my opinion, the number one is BitDefender. Benefiting from previous experience, the new BitDefender Free Edition was designed with a centralized management console, which allows protection options configuration for all BitDefender modules. It is enough to open the management console in order to have access to all modules: Virus Scan, Scheduler, Live! Update, Quarantine, Reports. Automatic and manual update are available. Intelligent update of antivirus protection, without your intervention. The update can be done from the network over the Internet, directly or through a Proxy Server.

2.     Kaspersky Anti-Virus – Kaspersky Labs has been one of the best antivirus software developers in the world for over a decade and now Kaspersky Anti-Virus  only strengthens that reputation. Founded by Natalia and Eugene Kaspersky in 1997, this Russian company is often the first to find and identify new viruses. Long used in Russia and Europe, Kaspersky is now making inroads in the North American market. Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2009 is one of the most effective antivirus packages in the world today and boasts a great interface with easy to use and intuitive controls.

The Kaspersky Online Virus Scanner scans your computer for malicious code and offers the same   exceptional detection rates as other Kaspersky Lab products.

3.     AVG Anti-Virus – AVG Antivirus has been an up and coming virus scanner for many years. Its free version is one of the most downloaded files on the Internet in the Computer Security sector. The new interface is clean and intuitive while still remaining useful. AVG went through a re-write of their virus scanning engine and included two of their stand alone products with AVG Antivirus as well. AVG Antispyware and AVG Antirootkit were both integrated with the virus scanner. Also revamped is the way AVG Antivirus uses the hardware within your computer. It has been changed to make better use of the multiple cores which are common in todays computers. This should speed up scanning as well as reduce slowdowns.

Part 1 Scan your computer with a free antivirus software I recommended you. Even If you have an antivirus software I recommend you to perform a full system scan.

Part 2 Scan your Registry with Eusing Free Registry Cleaner . After scanning and fixing the invalid entries, your system will be more stable and run faster.

Step Three –  Perform the Optimization

 

Part 1. Perform the SG TCP Optimization

It’s time to use the SG TCP optimizer you downloaded. This program modifies and optimizes the system registry, increasing your internet connection speed.  Here’s how you do it.

Click OK,  and then and click “Yes” to reboot your computer.

Choose the settings based on your needs and computer configuration. Check out the other two tabs – ‘Other Optimizations’ & ‘Other Useful Settings’ as well. Now Click ‘Tune It’  (the FireFox browser should NOT be open).
