Someone told me that a good way to further speed up my computer, having taken many steps to backup and remove data, get it malware-free and remove startups and services, would be to simply replace my hard drive with a newer one, as it would apparently get slower as time goes by, no matter how well you maintain it. This one is about seven or eight years old i think. Would this work? I do not need extra space, i simply need more speed.
