Perhaps the most important factor to a badly performing computer is malware.
Action 1. Revise the definitions of your anti virus and operate a complete scan of your hard disk drive in Safe Mode. Solve any unfixable problems. Notice that some infections need additional steps before they may be removed; generally a websearch will locate specific directions or a particular removal tool. If you fail to find a solution, use the Bc forums to obtain assistance.
Step 2. You have recently downloaded an application, and if the sluggishness is unexpected, the issue might live there. Check this by entirely removing it. A user will normally perform a internet search about the program before getting because in most instances, any possible difficulty with malware or inferior performance will have surfaced.
Action 3. Adware and Spyware can radically impact your computer’s functionality, and these are around the Web.
Experienced customers will regularly run two or three of the programs, because each company has its own requirements for what constitutes spyware and will just search against their own established. (A set of quite great, free antispyware applications is supplied by BC). Again, solve any open issues before proceeding to the next phase.
Step 4. Review applications that self-start on startup. You computer can be a battleground for your attention. Many programs, for example, install a fast-start feature that allows them to be opened quickly; other programs may comprise an automated 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 resources while your computer is running.
If, for instance, you have Spybot Search and Destroy, you can use its startup tool that lists startups and enables you to turn off any you usually do not want. Remember that Bc maintains a very comprehensive Startup Database that contains information about whether the questioned item is needed, optional, or not needed, if you are uncertain about what can be safely removed.
At-the same time, remember that those icons on your own Background also take a small number of boot time to set themselves.
Lack of Care
Stage 5. Clean-up your hard drive (preparation for Action 7). Delete unused programs and transfer old files into a CD. Unplayed games, lots of family images, zipped files which you have opened, applications you have not found in two years, software for that old printer you put away last year—these are some types of files you can delete. Then use Window’s Disk Clean-up to delete temporary internet files, temporary PC health files, etc.
(Note for higher level users: some experts would include the additional care stage of cleaning up the Windows registry, and you’ll find several programs to help do this. For the most part, registry maintenance will not make a major difference, and unless you’re quite comfortable with Windows, and carefully make backups of-the registry, you may do severe damage by creating registry changes, so this step is not contained
Action 6. Have it mend Failed With Error 1.
Step 7. Defragment your personal computer.
Hopefully, since you have have finished, you will see a noticeable improvement in computer operation.
