Get Exact Installation Date of Windows 8.1 Operating System for Your Own PC

There are basically two types of Windows users. The first type of users do not know how to install a Windows Operating System to a computer’s hard drive and they have been using an old installation for years. The second category users always love to stick with new computer installation so that they can get a better user performance with their pc.

I am not going to create any debate in this issue. But I prefer both of the above methods according to user criteria. The first method never give you nice Windows performance as Windows are getting slower after several days of usage. Whenever if you are not worried about the hard-disk health of your PC then the best way is to go with new Windows installation to get best possible outcomes from your computer.

In my previous article I have already covered how to check hard-disk health status for your computer.
