PCPro the UK website just put out a fantastic list of their suggestions for improvements that Microsoft could make for Windows 8.
Here are some of the ones I agree with:
Your PC will never be as fast as its first boot thanks to redundant Registry entries, thousands of cached files and folders full of clutter all slowing down your system as it churns through a slowly lengthening boot process.
In fact, it’s such an issue that a whole industry has sprung up around promises to make your computer faster, with some software claiming to optimise settings and others offering to scour your PC of junk so you don’t have to.
Surely it isn’t too much to ask for Microsoft to keep its own house in order, without the need for third-party cleaners.
