There are a set of applications and maintenance procedures that can help you discover how to speed up your Windows 8 PC without too much effort.I Do not promise miracles,but if you put into practice all the advice I am going to give you and continue to "treat well" your computer, the results could be extremely positive.
If you want to know how to speed up your Windows 8 PC because you have bought a new computer equipped with this OS and you seem a bit slow, I would say to start "cutting" all unnecessary software that usually come pre installed in PCs from companies that sell in the electronics store and supermarkets. I refer to trial versions of antivirus, multimedia programs, additional toolbar for your browser and other programs.
To accomplish this task, I suggest you to use Should I Remove It?. This is a free application that analyzes all the software installed on your computer and informs the user which you can or even should remove because unnecessary or dangerous. To download Should I Remove It? on your PC, connect to the program website and click on the Download (Free) and then click Download "Should I Remove It?"
In the window that opens, locate the programs that have the Removal with the highest percentage (i.e., those more useless and/or dangerous) and search for information about them by clicking on the What is it?. This will open the Internet site Should I Remove It with a description of the selected software and the reasons why should be removed. Click the Uninstall button and then proceed to uninstall.
At the end of the download, double click on the downloaded program (PC-Decrapifier-1.9.1.exe). Click on the Next button until you get to the window Is This a New PC?, where you have to tick the Yes before you click again to twice in a row on the Next button.
In the window Select the Items to Uninstall shows the programs that are detected as junk. All junk programs with check mark, can be removed.If you want to keep a certain program, remove the checkmark, and click on the Next button.
At the end to uninstall the junk programs, click on the Next button and then click on Cancel to close PC Decrapifier.

It is a very simple but effective practice, which is recommended for all versions of the Microsoft operating system Windows 8 but must be done in slightly different ways.
To disable unnecessary programs from Windows 8 starting automatically, you must invoke the task manager by right click on an empty spot on the taskbar and selecting task manager from the menu that appears. In the window that opens, click on more details, select the Startup tab and disable programs that you feel superfluous – you don't want to start automatically each time Windows – by clicking the Disable button.
Other very effective methods to keep your computer always snappy are free up hard disk space by deleting unnecessary files from your PC, and eliminate the errors that exist within the registry. Two operations that are able to do so egregious the free software CCleaner.
To download CCleaner on your PC, connect to the program website and click on Download button. When the download is complete open, double clicking on it, the file you just downloaded (e.g. ccsetup403.exe) and, in the window that opens, set English from the language selection menu,then Click Next, Next, Install and Finish to complete the installation and run CCleaner. Uncheck the Google Toolbar entry if you do not want to install additional toolbars to your browser.
To free up disk space using CCleaner for Windows 8,all you have to do is to select the items you want to remove from your PC using the options in the left sidebar (leave everything as is unless you know where to put my hands!) and click on the Start Cleaning button. To fix the problems in the registry, instead, select the card register and click on the first problems Find and then click Fix selected.
Despite your efforts and despite the advice above, you are not able to speed up your PC Windows 8? Then you may try to restore the system state back to factory settings using the restore feature in the Microsoft operating system (that i will discuss in another post).
In this way, you can reset the settings of your applications and run a PC without formatting and without erasing the data.
