Because several readers write about their computer responding slowly, I am posting a summary record of basic steps you can take to solve the 0x005aea0cproblem, and briefly discussing the three most frequent causes : malware, uncontrolled applications, and lack of care.
Maybe the most important factor to a badly performing computer is malware. Generally this is associated with downloading a software that includes spyware, by not having browser security settings large enough, by carelessly downloading P2P files, or by failing to install security sections in a timely manner.
Stage 1. Revise the explanations of your anti-virus and operate a full scan of your hard drive in Safe Mode. Resolve any unfixable issues. Notice that some infections require extra measures before they may be removed; normally a internet search will locate specific instructions or a special removal tool. Use the Bc forums to request assistance, if you fail to find a answer.
Step Two. If the slowness is unanticipated, and you have recently downloaded an application, the problem may rest there. Test this by completely eliminating it. A wise user will usually perform a web search about the program before downloading it because in most instances, any possible trouble with malware or poor performance will have appeared.
Step three. Adware and Spyware can radically effect your computer’s functionality, and these are all over the Web.
Seasoned customers will routinely run 2 or 3 of these programs, because each business has its own requirements for what constitutes spyware and will simply search against their own established. (A listing of quite good, free anti-spyware applications is supplied by BC). Again, solve any open issues before continuing to the next phase.
For additional reading about Malware and some malware removal applications, use BC’s Tutorial section; most of the applications have quite great Help files that describe how they work too as the unique attributes of each.
Stage 4. Review programs that self-launch on startup. You computer can be a arena for your attention. Many programs, for instance, install a rapid-start feature which permits them to be exposed quickly; other programs may include an automated update feature that demands them to be working in the background. Your launching Windows are slowed down by each of these and each requires a small bit of assets while your personal computer is running.
If, like, you have Spybot Search and Destroy, you can use its startup tool that lists startups and lets you to show off any you don’t want. Remember that Bc maintains a really complete Startup Database that includes information about whether the item is needed, discretionary, or unnecessary, in case you are uncertain about what can be safely deleted.
At-the same time, remember that all those symbols on your own Background also take a small amount of trunk time to place themselves.
Lack of Maintenance
Step 5. Delete unused programs and move old files to a CD. Unplayed games, tons of family pictures, zipped files which you have already opened, applications you have not found in two years, software for that old printer you put away last year—these are a few examples of files you can delete. Then use Window’s Disk Cleanup to remove temporary internet files, temporary PC health files, etc.
(Note for advanced level users: some experts would comprise the added upkeep step of cleaning up the Windows registry, and there are several programs to assist do that. For the most part, so this step is not contained, you may do severe damage by making registry changes, registry care won’t make a significant difference, and unless you are really comfortable with Windows, and cautiously make backups of-the registry
Action 6. Have it fix 0x005aea0c.
Action 7. Defragment your personal computer.
Hopefully, since you have have ended, you will find a noticeable enhancement in computer functionality.
