Many readers will have witnessed their computer system becoming progressively slower in use over time. This particularly affects Windows so much so that over time it can feel like the machine is running at half speed. This is in part due to users continually installing more applications, and not performing system maintenance.

Other factors include ineffective uninstallation routines, Microsoft's propensity for almost daily patches and security updates, hard drives full of temporary files, a bloated registry, and poorly configured anti-virus software. These types of issues also affect Linux albeit to a lesser degree.
