    That your PC becomes slower, even if you are using CCleaner is very likely because the software you are using is becoming more resource consuming. Well known examples for this are Firefox and Thunderbird. This software tends to eat up all the memory (RAM) and then your PC starts to use the hard disk to temporarily store currently unused RAM on it (so called swapping). This swapping causes your PC to become verrrry slow, as everytime your PC tries to access a memory region thats on the hard drive it must be read from the hard drive first and reading it from there is very slow. Until this has happend the program hangs... Have a look at your PCs hard drive LED. If it starts "blinking" a lot when your PC is slow, then your RAM is full.

    Solution: You can reduce memory consumption by tweeking some settings of programs. In Firefox I suggest you to use the "NoScript"-Plugin, which blocks Javascript on websites. Especially scripts of some advertising nerks consume a lot of RAM. I experienced a huge speedup using this plugin. But you'll need to enable some scripts manually, else some websites won't work.
    Here are some more tricks how to reduce memory consumption of Firefox: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-uses-too-much-memory-ram

    To know which programs eat up your CPU-resources and RAM you should start the Task Manager. Right-click on your taskbar and select "Start Taskmanager" (or use Ctl+Alt+Del and then choose that option; or Look up "Task Manager" in the Startmenu). There you can sort the Programs by "used memory" or "CPU consumption".

    An SSD can speed up the PC in ways:
    1. An SSD is like a very fast Hard Disk. It's more or less like a big flash drive (same technology), but uses a lot of flash memory in parallel, this way its read/write rate is much faster compared to a usual "usb flash drive". So all your data is loaded/stored faster. Also programs can be loaded/started faster this way. For comparison: A normal hard drive has a read/write speed of about 30-60 MB/s, a SSD has about 200-400 MB/s.

    2. SSD dont have a rotating disc like a hard drive, they can just "address" a memory block and read it. Therefore, they don't need to wait until the disc is in a special (rotation position) and also don't need to move a read/write head physically. All this causes waiting times when reading/writing data from a hard drive. Especially if you have a lot of small files or your files are very fragmented and distributed all over the hard drive. In that case your read/write head needs to move long distances to read every part of that file instead of just continuously reading data that is physically next to each other on the drive. SSD do not have problems with fragmentation. It doesn't make a really noticeable difference if your data is very fragmented anymore, even your read/write rate might drop a bit.

    Drawback: SSDs have a limited number of write cycles per memory region. Writing a block too often (~100'000 times) causes a sector to fail. Newer SSDs have build in enough spare blocks, that are then used instead. The controller notices the defects and then just uses the other (spare) block. Some cheap SSDs (especially from OCZ) often fail. The problem: This mostly happens "at the moment". So the drive just doesn't work anymore... The data is then "lost" (or you'll need to take that drive to a data recovery service -> expensive). In most cases the SSDs Controller-Board is defective and the SSD can be repaired by replacing the Board (e.g. if you have SSDs of the same type). So you should make backups of your data more often!!!
    If you have a normal PC you can also use SSDs in a mirror-RAID or use even more of them with other RAID-levels (e.g. 6 SSDs => usable space of 4 SSDs, speed-up: 4x read/write rate, up 2 discs may fail). The latter case might be interesting if you need lots of storage, as larger SSDs are very expensive. But combining multiple small SDDs can give you a higher speed and the same capacity for a lower price and more safety due to RAID...

    Ram

    Check if your machine can accept extra RAM or is expandable. Cheap fix.

    If your pc slows down considerably then you could have a memory leak issue.CCleaner and other programs wont help

    CTRL+ ALT+DEL go to proceses and see what is consuming allot of your memory and if something is keeping your cpu to 99-100% If something is consuming allot of cpu power of memory then ending the process is a temporary fix and will be back next restart.

    Usually memory leaks are caused by a process called svchost that containt more services under its name.If you have that then theres an easy fix involving a .bat file on the internet.

    If your procesor is not being kept at 90+% then you might just have an old windows and need to reinstall or just runn some updates . OR simply it's just an old machine and the hardware is not made to runn newer software. Fix for this is get a new machine. And if you do photo/video editing dont skimp on a 128-256 gb SSD!

    you might want to check your hardware as well, as a broken motherboard or bad hardisk can cripple your computer down.
