I’m posting a summary listing of general things you can do to solve this problem, and briefly discussing the three most frequent causes : malware, uncontrolled applications, and insufficient maintenance, because many readers write about their computer responding slowly.
Maybe the greatest factor to a poorly performing computer is malware.
Stage 1. Revise the definitions of your anti-virus and run a full scan of your drive in Safe Mode. Resolve any unfixable problems. Note that some viruses need extra measures before they could be removed; generally a internet search will locate specific directions or a particular removal tool. Use the Bc forums to obtain help, if you cannot find a answer.
2. You have recently saved an application, and if the slowness is abrupt, the issue might rest there. Test this by completely removing it. A user will normally perform a internet search about the program before installing because in most instances, any possible difficulty with malware or poor performance will have surfaced.
Step 3. Adware and Spyware can radically effect your personal computer’s functionality, and these are around the Internet.
Experienced customers will often operate two or three of these programs, because each business has its own requirements for what constitutes spyware and will simply search against their own set. (A listing of very great, free anti-spyware programs is provided by BC). Again, solve any open issues before proceeding to the next step.
For additional 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 too as the special features of each.
Stage 4. Evaluation applications that self-launching on startup. You computer may be a battleground for your consideration. Many programs, for instance, install a fast-launch feature that permits them to be exposed instantly; other programs may contain an automated 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 small bit of assets while your personal computer is running.
The easiest approach to examine and than to manage startups is to work with one of many small resources available (see the Bc list of free applications). In case you are unsure about what may be safely removed, remember that Bc maintains a really complete Startup Database that includes information about whether the item is needed, elective, or not needed.
At-the same time, remember that those icons on your Desktop also take a modest amount of trunk time to place themselves.
Lack of Maintenance
Step 5. Delete unused programs and exchange old files to a CD. Unplayed games, tons of family images, zipped files which you have opened, applications you have not used in two years, software for that old printer you put away last year—these are some examples of files you can delete.
(Note for high level users: some specialists would include the additional upkeep step of cleaning up the Windows registry, and you’ll find plenty of apps to help try this. For the most part, registry care will not make a critical difference, and unless you are very comfortable with Windows, and cautiously make backups of-the registry, you can do serious damage by creating registry modifications, so this measure is not included
Stage 6. Run scandisk / checkdisk in Safe Mode. Have it repair Bsod Manually.
Step 7. Defragment your personal computer. Windows tends to set new documents in any available open space; defragging will place related sections of files closer together therefore your read arm has less travelling around the hard drive to do, saving wear and tear while speeding up applications.
Hopefully, since you have have ended, you will see a marked enhancement in computer operation.
