Because several readers write about their computer reacting slowly, I am submitting a summary listing of general things you can do to solve the 0x00000C58issue, and briefly discussing the three most common causes : malware, uncontrolled applications, and lack of care.
Perhaps the most important factor to a badly performing computer is malware.
Stage 1. Update the definitions of your anti virus and run a full scan of your hard disk drive in Safe Mode. Solve any unfixable problems. Notice that some infections need extra steps until they could be removed; generally a web search will locate specific instructions or a particular removal tool. Use the Bc forums to obtain support, if you can’t find a answer.
Step 2. If the sluggishness is sudden, and you’ve recently saved an application, the problem might reside there. Test this by completely removing it. A smart user will typically perform a websearch about the program before getting because in most cases, any potential difficulty with malware or inferior performance will have appeared.
Action three. Adware and Spyware can drastically effect your computer’s performance, and these are throughout the World wide web. A very recent research indicated that one out-of every 20 executable files on Websites is spyware, and 1 in 25 domains contain at least one piece of spyware waiting for sufferers.
Seasoned users will often operate several of the applications, because each business has its own requirements for what constitutes spyware and will only search against their own set. (A set of very great, free anti-spyware programs is given by BC). Again, solve any open issues before continuing to the next step.
For additional reading about Malware and some malware removal applications, use BC’s Tutorial section; most of the applications have very great Help files that describe how they operate too as the special characteristics of each.
Step 4. Review applications that self-launching on startup. You computer can become a arena for your interest. Many programs, for example, install a quick-launch feature that enables them to be opened rapidly; other programs may comprise an automatic update feature that requires them to be working in the background. Each of these decreases your launching Windows and each requires a little bit of resources while your computer is running.
The easiest method to review and than to manage start-ups will be to use one of the many little utilities available (see the BC list of free programs). If, like, you have Spybot Search and Destroy, you may use its startup tool that lists startups and allows you to show off any you usually do not need. Remember that Bc maintains a very comprehensive Startup Database that includes information about whether the item is needed, discretionary, or unnecessary, if you are unsure about what may be safely deleted.
At the same time, remember that those icons on your Desktop also take a modest number of boot time to set themselves.
Absence of Care
Step 5. Delete unused applications and transfer old files into a CD. Unplayed games, tons of family images, zipped files that you have already opened, applications you haven’t used in two years, software for that old printer you threw away last year—these are some types of files you can delete.
(Note for sophisticated users: some experts would contain the additional care step of cleaning the Windows registry, and you will find plenty of programs to assist do that. For the most part, registry care won’t make a critical difference, and unless you are very comfortable with Windows, and cautiously make copies of the registry, you can do significant damage by creating registry modifications, so this measure isn’t included
Action 6. Have it fix 0x00000C58.
Action 7. Defragment your pc. Windows tends to set new files in any available open space; defragging will place affiliated sections of files closer together therefore your read arm has less travelling around the hard drive to do, saving wear and tear while speeding up applications.
Hopefully, since you have have concluded, you’ll find a noticeable improvement in computer operation.
