Basic Troubleshooting

Delete temporary files: Disk Cleanup for Windows 7 / 8; CCleaner, a free utility for cleaning your system up

Defragment your hard drive (note that on Windows 7 and above systems, defragmentation should be happening automatically): Wikipedia – Disk Defragmenter (Windows).

Note – the new SSD drives do not defragment in the traditional sense, but windows does need to re-order and defrag the index files of the drive, not the files themselves. It is now acceptable to use the built-in defragmentation tools for SSD drives.

Run a check disk (chkdsk): Windows Vista or Windows 7; Windows 8
