That is something Annie Leonard would highly discourage.
Instead, there are a few steps you could do to make your computer faster (Windows):
– Uninstall old programs,
– Defragment your hard drive…
– …and clean your Windows Registry:
Auslogics Registry Cleaner does that for you:
The Windows Registry is the most accessed and the most vulnerable to errors part of your computer. As you install and uninstall software it becomes cluttered with obsolete and corrupted entries, which can cause system errors, crashes, and failures. Therefore it’s extremely important to keep the Registry in top form by cleaning all the junk and fixing all the errors that accumulate over time.Auslogics Registry Cleaner is designed for fast and safe Registry optimization. It will detect and fix various Registry errors and ensure that your computer runs as good as new.
Althought it mentioned a performance enhancement of 3%, I could see that my computer now runs much faster than that.
Thank you Auslogic
