Because many readers reveal their computer responding slowly, I am posting a summary checklist of general things you can do to solve the 501 Error In Outlook Expressproblem, and briefly discussing the three most frequent causes : malware, uncontrolled applications, and insufficient maintenance.
Maybe the most important contributor to a badly performing computer is malware.
Step 1. Update the explanations of your anti virus and run a complete scan of your hard disk in Safe Mode. Solve any unfixable problems. Notice that some viruses need additional steps before they may be removed; ordinarily a web search will find specific instructions or a particular removal tool. Use the BC forums to request support, if you cannot find a solution.
Step 2. You have recently downloaded an application, and if the slowness is sudden, the issue may live there. Test this by fully removing it. A smart user will generally perform a web search about the application before installing because in most instances, any possible difficulty with malware or inferior performance will have appeared.
Stage three. Adware and Spyware can radically effect your personal computer’s functionality, and these are all over the Web. A very recent research showed that one out of every 20 executable files on Websites is spyware, and 1 in 25 domains include at least one bit of spyware waiting for victims.
Revise the explanations of your anti-spyware programs and check your hard drives in Safe Mode. Experienced customers will frequently run several of the applications, because each company has its own criteria for what constitutes spyware and will just search against their own established. (A record of really great, free anti spyware applications is supplied by BC). Again, solve any open issues before proceeding to the next phase.
For additional reading about Malware and some malware removal applications, use BC’s Tutorial section; most of the applications have very great Help files that describe how they work also as the unique attributes of each.
Step 4. Review applications that self-launching on startup. You computer can be a battleground for your attention. Many programs, for instance, install a quick-start feature that enables them to be opened quickly; other programs will contain an automated update feature that demands them to be running in the background. Each of these decreases your launch Windows and each requires a small 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 show off any you do not want. Remember that BC maintains a very complete Startup Database that contains info about whether the item is needed, optional, or not needed, in case you are unsure about what may be safely removed.
At-the same time, remember that those icons on your Desktop also take a modest amount of trunk time to put themselves.
Absence of Maintenance
Stage 5. Clean-up your hard drive (preparation for Action 7). Delete unused applications and transfer old files to a CD. Unplayed games, lots of family images, zipped files which you have already opened, applications you have not found in two years, software for the old printer you threw away last year—these are a few examples of files you can delete.
(Note for higher level users: some specialists would comprise the additional maintenance stage of cleaning up the Windows registry, and you will find plenty of apps to assist do that. For the most part, registry care will not make a vital difference, and unless you are quite comfortable with Windows, and cautiously make copies of the registry, you may do severe damage by making registry changes, so this measure isn’t contained
Action 6. Have it mend 501 Error In Outlook Express.
Stage 7. Defragment your personal computer.
Hopefully, since you have have finished, you will see a marked enhancement in computer performance.
