Perhaps the most important contributor to a poorly performing computer is malware.
Step 1. Update the definitions of your antivirus and operate a full scan of your drive in Safe Mode. Resolve any unfixable issues. Notice that some infections need additional steps before they may be removed; ordinarily a web search will locate specific directions or a particular removal tool. If you can’t find a answer, use the BC forums to request support.
Step Two. You have recently downloaded an application, and if the slowness is unexpected, the issue may live there. Test this by completely removing it. A wise user will normally perform a web search about the application before downloading it because in most instances, any potential problem with malware or inferior performance will have appeared.
Stage three. Adware and Spyware can radically impact your personal computer’s operation, and these are all over the Web.
Update the definitions of your anti spyware applications and scan your hard drives in Safe Mode. Seasoned users will routinely run two or three of these applications, because each company has its own standards for what constitutes spyware and will just search against their own established. (A listing of quite good, free anti-spyware applications is supplied by BC). Again, resolve any open issues before continuing to the next step.
Stage 4. Evaluation apps that self-launching on startup. You computer can become a arena for your interest. Many programs, for instance, install a fast-launch feature which permits them to be exposed immediately; other programs may contain an automated update feature that demands them to be running in the background. Your launching Windows are slowed down by each of these and each requires a little bit of sources 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 need. Remember that BC maintains a very complete Startup Database that includes info about whether the questioned item is required, discretionary, or unnecessary, in case you are uncertain about what could be safely removed.
At the same time, remember that those symbols in your Desktop also take a modest number of trunk time to put themselves.
Lack of Upkeep
Stage 5. Delete unused applications and transfer old files to your CD. Unplayed games, tons of family pictures, zipped files which you have already opened, applications you haven’t used in two years, software for the old printer you threw away last year—these are some examples of files you can delete.
(Note for advanced users: some experts would include the added maintenance stage of cleaning the Windows registry, and there are plenty of apps to assist do that. For the most part, so this measure is not contained, you may do severe damage by creating registry modifications, registry maintenance won’t make a significant difference, and unless you’re very comfortable with Windows, and carefully make backups of the registry
Action 6. Run scandisk / checkdisk in Safe Mode. Have it mend 0x77f64a55.
Step 7. Defragment your personal computer.
Hopefully, now that you have have concluded, you’ll find a marked improvement in computer performance.
