Are you tired of your Windows system working slowly? You might be abusing the operating system for its slow performance on your computer system. But chances are — it’s you who is responsible for the slow performance.
We all uninstall software in Windows 10. We download a lot of software and seldom use it. Some of the software then become outdated or leave leftovers and junk files after you uninstall it.
When you uninstall software, it leaves thousands of temporary files that sometimes occupy GB’s of space in your hard drive. You need to make sure to remove traces of uninstalled programs.
Unless you delete these files manually or use the software, they stay in your system forever and make your computer slower.
