Restarting Windows can fix many problems, but do you know why?

The truth is that restarting Windows is something that I recommend very frequently, and for a very simple reason, can work real “miracles” in many situations, in fact I am sure that this is something that more than one of our readers will have experienced personally. If your PC starts to slow down something as simple as a restart might fix it.

So much so, and such is its importance, that we could say that restarting Windows is the first thing we should do when we are experiencing problems of any kind. So, for example, if we have updated any application and it is giving us problems, a restart can be the solution, and the same can happen if we have Internet connection problems, if an application is consuming a lot of resources or if it gives us stability problems.

The list of problems and errors that can be solved with something as simple as restarting Windows would be very long, but let’s get to the important thing, do you know why it is such an effective method? If you answered no, don’t worry, I’m not going to leave you wondering. In this article I will explain in a simple and easy to understand way why something so simple works so well.

Have you tried restarting Windows? And what Windows is not

It’s funny, because in general, restarting something is very effective in many situations. It has worked for me personally with things as varied as the car I had before, with the Smart TV and even with a camera phone to be able to view the street. Yes, restarting works, so much so that it’s most likely the first thing they invite you to do if you contact any technical service, but why?

restart windows causes RAM to be flushed and caches to be cleaned, which means that any underlying errors or failures that have become entrenched in them disappear completely, and we will have the operating system ready to start over. But this is not all, a reboot can also finish putting order in the mess caused by an update, fine-tuning elements that cannot be moved when we are on the desktop.

Last but not least, all those applications that could be running in the background are closed, and that despite having been closed continued to consume resources and generate conflicts or problems in an uncontrolled way. Think, for example, of that application or process that refuses to be closed, and that continues to consume a large amount of resources at the RAM and CPU level.

A reboot can kill those rogue apps and free up resources, and it can also kill underlying bugs that affect the connectivity of certain devices, and even our Internet network, thanks to that reset and emptying of RAM memory. So if you have problems connecting to the Internet and you restart the router it is essential that you also restart the PC. If you cannot restart normally, remember that there is an emergency restart.
