Because several readers reveal their computer reacting slowly, I am posting a summary checklist of basic steps you can take to solve the 0x76692c30problem, and briefly discussing the three most common causes : malware, uncontrolled applications, and lack of care.
Possibly the greatest factor to a badly performing computer is malware.
Action 1. Revise the explanations of your anti-virus and run a complete scan of your hard disk drive in Safe Mode. Solve any unfixable problems. Notice that some viruses need extra measures before they could be removed; ordinarily a internet search will find specific instructions or a special removal tool. Use the BC forums to request assistance, if you can’t find a solution.
2. If the sluggishness is unexpected, and you’ve recently saved an application, the issue might live there. Test this by entirely removing it. A wise user will generally perform a internet search about the program before installing because in most cases, any potential problem with malware or poor performance will have surfaced.
Step three. Adware and Spyware can dramatically impact your computer’s operation, and these are around the Net.
Experienced customers will routinely operate two or three of the applications, because each company has its own criteria for what constitutes spyware and will just search against their own set. (A list of quite good, free anti spyware programs is given by BC). Again, resolve any open issues before proceeding to the next phase.
For further reading about Malware and some malware removal applications, use BC’s Tutorial section; most of the programs have quite good Help documents that clarify how they work too as the special attributes of each.
Stage 4. Review programs that self-launching on startup. You computer can become a battleground for your interest. Many programs, for instance, install a quick-launch feature that permits them to be exposed rapidly; other programs will contain an automatic update feature that requires them to be running in the background. Your launching Windows are slowed down by each of these and each needs a little bit of sources while your computer is running.
The easiest method to examine and than to handle startups is to work with one of the numerous little utilities available (see the BC list of free apps). In case you are unsure about what could be safely deleted, remember that Bc maintains a quite complete Startup Database that contains information about whether the item is required, discretionary, or unnecessary.
At the same time, remember that those icons in your Desktop also take a small amount of trunk time to put themselves.
Absence of Maintenance
Stage 5. Clean-up your hard drive (preparation for Stage 7). Delete unused programs and move old files into a CD. Unplayed games, tons of family pictures, zipped files which you have opened, applications you have not found in two years, software for the old printer you put away last year—these are some types of files you can delete.
(Note for advanced users: some professionals would contain the additional upkeep step of cleaning up the Windows registry, and you’ll find several apps to assist try this. For the most part, so this measure is not included, you may do significant damage by creating registry changes, registry maintenance will not make a critical difference, and unless you’re very comfy with Windows, and cautiously make copies of the registry
Step 6. Run scandisk / checkdisk in Safe Mode. Have it repair 0x76692c30.
Stage 7. Defragment your computer. Windows tends to set new files in any available open space; defragging will set affiliated sections of files closer together therefore your read arm has less travelling around the hdd to do, saving wear-and tear while racing up plans.
Hopefully, now that you have have ended, you will find a noticeable enhancement in computer performance.
