If there is one thing that you expect out of your computer, its fast speed. Computer speed is one of the most sought after features of both desktops and laptops. Whether gaming, surfing the Web, executing code, running financial reports or updating databases, a computer can never be too fast. Spy ware and viruses are ever growing threats which can help slow down a computer.

Most computers tend to become slow with the passage of time. This is mainly due to lack of maintenance. Like any other device that is used extensively, a computer requires regular updates to function fully.

A nicely kept computer works faster, is quite, breaks less, and provides more joy, entertainment and productivity to their users.

Here are seven tips to make your computer the way it way it was, when you first bought it, no matter how long ago that was.

A UPS is basically a battery used to run the computer in case the electricity goes down. Moreover, they are also used to shield the computer from damage due to sudden surges or drops in the electricity supply, like during thunderstorms.

Depending on the brand and power, a UPS can keep computers working for several minutes up to several hours after the incident, preventing data loss or damage to components resulting from sudden failure.

There are plenty of tools available for creating virtual machines and servers in windows. These OS Emulation tools comes handy for testing software without investing in a large and expensive hardware lab. Before researching for this list, I was not aware that there are so many Linux tools available for creating virtual desktops and testing operating systems.

VirtualBox

VirtualBox is a family of powerful x86 virtualization products for enterprise as well as home use. Not only is VirtualBox an extremely feature rich, high performance product for enterprise customers, it is also the only professional solution that is freely available as Open Source Software under the terms of the GNU General Public License (GPL).

This VM (virtual machine) application, owned by Sun Microsystems and created by a small company called innotek, is one of the most popular virtualization solutions for Linux.

“It’s the third most popular method to run Windows applications on Linux”, according to DesktopLinux.com (trailing Wine, which is not an emulator/virtualizer, and VMWare, which is proprietary).

There’s good reason: it has a plenty of features, including snapshots, shared folders, RDP, ability to use host USB, and a lot of advanced hardware virtualization. There are two versions of VirtualBox. Installing the open-source edition is easy: just install the virtualbox-ose package  in the universe repositories. If  you want to install the enhanced but closed-source version, you’ll need to visit the Web site(below) and download the binaries from there.
