Because many readers come up with their computer reacting slowly, I am publishing a summary listing of general steps you can take to solve the 0x80072136issue, and briefly discussing the three most frequent causes : malware, uncontrolled applications, and insufficient care.
Possibly the greatest factor to a poorly performing computer is malware. Generally this is related to downloading a software that contains spyware, by not having browser security settings high enough, by carelessly downloading P2P files, or by failing to install security sections regularly.
Step 1. Update the definitions of your antivirus and run a complete scan of your hard drive in Safe Mode. Resolve any unfixable problems. Note that some viruses require extra measures until they can be removed; usually a internet search will find specific instructions or a special removal tool. Use the Bc forums to request support, if you cannot find a solution.
Step 2. If the slowness is unexpected, and you’ve recently saved an application, the issue may dwell there. Check this by fully removing it. A smart user will generally perform a websearch about the program before getting because in most cases, any possible issue with malware or poor performance will have appeared.
Stage 3. Adware and Spyware can radically effect your computer’s operation, and these are all over the Net.
Experienced users will frequently run 2 or 3 of the programs, because each business has its own standards for what constitutes spyware and will simply search against their own set. (A set of really great, free anti-spyware programs is provided by BC). Again, resolve any open issues before continuing to the next phase.
For further reading about Malware and some malware removal applications, use BC’s Tutorial section; most of the applications have very good Help documents that describe how they operate also as the unique features of each.
Step 4. Review programs that self-launch on startup. You pc can be a battleground for your consideration. Many programs, for instance, install a quick-start feature which allows them to be opened rapidly; other programs may comprise an automatic update feature that demands them to be working 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 review and than to manage start-ups would be to-use one of the numerous small resources available (see the BC list of free apps). If you’re unsure about what can be safely deleted, remember that Bc maintains a really comprehensive Startup Database that contains info about whether the item is required, discretionary, or not needed.
At-the same time, remember that those icons in your Desktop also take a small amount of boot time to put themselves.
Lack of Care
Stage 5. Clean up your hard drive (preparation for Stage 7). Delete unused applications and move old files into a CD. Unplayed games, lots of family images, zipped files which you have already opened, applications you haven’t used in two years, software for that old printer you put away last year—these are a few examples of files you can delete.
(Note for sophisticated users: some experts would contain the added care step of cleaning the Windows registry, and you will find plenty of applications to assist try this. For the most part, so this step isn’t included, you can do severe harm by making registry changes, registry care will not make a critical difference, and unless you are very comfy with Windows, and carefully make backups of-the registry
Stage 6. Have it repair 0x80072136.
Action 7. Defragment your pc.
Hopefully, since you have have concluded, you will see a noticeable improvement in computer performance.
