How to make Netbook faster?

Look, my netbook is so slow. I did a research about my netbook, well it's really slow. Lmao. But there are people who are using the same netbook like mine but they manage to make it faster and they're so happy with it now. I'm using Toshiba NB205 btw. Responds are really appreciated.

Starter is s very basic operating system and does not include many of the features found in Windows 7 Home, Professional, etc. But you could go through this tutorial on how to optimize (speed up) Windows 7. Obviously, not every suggestion will apply to you. I'd strongly encourage you to make a restore point before tweaking anything.

Another suggestion - If you don't have an SSD, that would help as would memory increase.

Since you have 32 bit, 4gbs Ram is max.

Good advice so far - I'll try not to break the streak.

What do you use it for? Internet mostly? If so, what browser are you using?

Also, what type of connection do you have? (Cable, DSL, Satellite, or whatever.)

Delete some unused programs, clear you Google Chrome history and delete the files that are on your Avast Quarantine.

The term "Netbook" usually refers to an inexpensive device usually meant only for media consumption. The CPU and GPU will not be very powerful. Assuming it doesn't already have one and its doable, as already mentioned, installing an SSD will speed things up considerably. Especially if it has a 5400 RPM spinner drive. Most desktops with standard hard drives have 7200 RPM drives. 5400 RPM drives are used in portable devices like laptops and tablets because they use lass power and generate less heat. The trade off is reduced performance because of the slower speed.
