Because several readers write about their computer responding slowly, I’m submitting a summary record of general things you can do to resolve the Access Violation Errorsproblem, and briefly discussing the three most common causes : malware, uncontrolled applications, and insufficient care.
Maybe the most important factor to a badly performing computer is malware. Usually this is associated with downloading an application that includes spyware, by not having browser security options high enough, by carelessly downloading P2P files, or by failing to install security areas regularly.
Stage 1. Update the explanations of your anti-virus and operate a complete scan of your drive in Safe Mode. Solve any unfixable problems. Notice that some infections need extra measures until they may be removed; generally a websearch will locate specific instructions or a particular removal tool. Use the BC forums to request help, if you can’t find a answer.
Step Two. You have recently downloaded an application, and if the sluggishness is sudden, the issue may dwell there. Test this by entirely removing it. A smart user will normally perform a websearch about the application before getting because in most instances, any possible issue with malware or poor performance will have appeared.
Step 3. Adware and Spyware can radically effect your personal computer’s operation, and these are throughout the Internet. A very recent study indicated that one out of every 20 executable files on Web sites is spyware, and 1 in 25 domains comprise at least one piece of spyware waiting for sufferers.
Update the explanations of your anti spyware programs and check your hard drives in Safe Mode. Experienced customers will often run two or three of the programs, because each company has its own standards for what constitutes spyware and will just search against their own set. (A list of very great, free antispyware programs is provided 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 special attributes of each.
Stage 4. Evaluation applications that self-launch on startup. You computer may be a battleground for your attention. Many programs, for instance, install a quick-start feature which allows them to be opened quickly; other programs may comprise an automatic update feature that requires them to be running in the background. Each of these slows down your launching Windows and each needs a small bit of sources while your computer is running.
If you are uncertain about what could be safely deleted, remember that Bc maintains a quite comprehensive Startup Database that includes information about whether the questioned item is required, discretionary, or not needed.
At-the same time, remember that those icons on your own Desktop also take a small number of boot time to put themselves.
Absence of Maintenance
Step 5. Clean-up your hard drive (preparation for Action 7). Delete unused applications and transfer old files into a CD. Unplayed games, lots of family images, zipped files which you have previously opened, applications you haven’t found in two years, software for that old printer you threw away last year—these are some examples of files you can delete. Then use Window’s Disk Clean-up to delete temporary internet files, temporary PC health files, etc.
(Note for sophisticated users: some professionals would contain the added maintenance stage of cleaning up the Windows registry, and you will find plenty of apps to help try this. For the most part, registry care won’t make a major difference, and unless you are very comfy with Windows, and carefully make copies of-the registry, you may do severe harm by creating registry changes, so this step isn’t included
Action 6. Run scandisk / checkdisk in Safe Mode. Have it mend Access Violation Errors.
Step 7. Defragment your personal computer. Windows will set new documents in any available open space; defragging will set associated sections of files closer together so your read arm has less travelling around the hdd to do, saving wear and tear while speeding up programs.
Hopefully, now that you have have finished, you’ll find a marked enhancement in computer functionality.
