Because many readers write about their computer reacting slowly, I am posting a summary record of basic things you can do to resolve the 1219 (0x4c3)problem, and briefly discussing the three most common causes : malware, uncontrolled applications, and lack of maintenance.
Maybe the most important factor to a badly performing computer is malware.
Action 1. Revise the explanations of your anti virus and operate a complete scan of your hard disk in Safe Mode. Solve any unfixable issues. Notice that some viruses require extra steps until they may be removed; usually a web search will find specific instructions or a special removal tool. Use the Bc forums to obtain assistance, if you cannot find a solution.
Step 2. If the slowness is unexpected, and you’ve recently saved an application, the issue might reside there. Check this by fully eliminating it. A wise user will typically perform a internet search about the application before installing because in most cases, any possible problem with malware or inferior performance will have appeared.
Stage 3. Adware and Spyware can dramatically effect your personal computer’s performance, and these are throughout the Internet. A very recent research showed that one out-of every 20 executable files on Websites is spyware, and 1 in 25 domains contain at least one bit of spyware waiting for sufferers.
Seasoned users will often operate two or three of these programs, because each company has its own standards for what constitutes spyware and will only search against their own set. (A list of very great, free antispyware programs is provided by BC). Again, solve any open issues before continuing to the next step.
For further reading about Malicious software and some malware removal applications, use BC’s Tutorial section; most of the programs have very good Help documents that explain how they operate also as the distinctive features of each.
Step 4. Evaluation programs that self-launch on startup. You pc can be a arena for your interest. Many programs, for example, install a quick-start feature which permits them to be exposed instantly; other programs may comprise an automatic update feature that demands them to be running in the background. Each of these decreases your introduction Windows and each needs a little bit of resources while your personal computer is running.
The simplest method to review and than to handle startups will be to utilize one of the numerous little utilities available (see the BC list of free programs). You may use its startup tool that lists startups and allows you to show off any you usually do not need, if, like, you have Spybot Search and Destroy. Remember that Bc maintains a very complete Startup Database that includes info about whether the item is needed, elective, or unnecessary, if you are uncertain about what may be safely deleted.
At-the same time, remember that those symbols on your own Desktop also take a modest amount of boot time to place themselves.
Absence of Upkeep
Step 5. Delete unused programs and exchange old files to your CD. Unplayed games, lots of family pictures, zipped files that you have previously opened, applications you haven’t used in two years, software for the old printer you put away last year—these are a few examples of files you can delete.
(Note for advanced users: some experts would contain the additional care step of cleaning up the Windows registry, and you will find several applications to help do this. For the most part, registry care won’t make a major difference, and unless you are quite comfortable with Windows, and cautiously make backups of-the registry, you can do severe harm by creating registry modifications, so this measure isn’t contained
Step 6. Have it fix 1219 (0x4c3).
Step 7. Defragment your computer. Windows will set new documents in any available open space; defragging will set related segments of files closer together so your read arm has less travelling around the hard drive to do, saving wear-and tear while speeding up programs.
Hopefully, since you have have concluded, you’ll see a marked enhancement in computer functionality.
