I am submitting a summary listing of basic things you can do to solve this issue, and briefly discussing the three most frequent causes : malware, uncontrolled applications, and insufficient maintenance, because many readers come up with their computer responding slowly.
Maybe the most important factor to a badly performing computer is malware.
Stage 1. Update the explanations of your anti virus and run a complete scan of your hard disk drive in Safe Mode. Solve any unfixable problems. Notice that some viruses need extra steps before they can be removed; typically a web search will locate specific instructions or a special removal tool. Use the BC forums to request help, if you can’t find a solution.
Step Two. You’ve recently downloaded an application, and if the slowness is unexpected, the problem might dwell there. Check this by completely removing it. A sensible user will generally perform a internet search about the program before installing because in most instances, any possible issue with malware or poor performance will have appeared.
Stage 3. Adware and Spyware can drastically effect your computer’s operation, and these are all over the Internet.

Seasoned customers will routinely operate 2 or 3 of the programs, because each business has its own requirements for what constitutes spyware and will just search against their own established. (A listing of really good, free anti-spyware applications is provided by BC). Again, resolve any open issues before continuing to the next phase.
For additional reading about Malicious software and some malware removal applications, use BC’s Tutorial section; most of the programs have very good Help files that describe how they work too as the distinctive attributes of each.
Stage 4. Review applications that self-launch on startup. You pc can be a battleground for your consideration. Many programs, for instance, install a quick-launch feature that enables them to be exposed fast; other programs will include an automatic update feature that requires them to be operating in the background. Each of these decreases your launching Windows and each needs a small bit of assets while your personal computer is running.
If you are unsure about what could be safely deleted, remember that Bc maintains a really comprehensive Startup Database that contains info about whether the item is required, elective, or not needed.
At-the same time, remember that all those icons on your Background also take a small amount of boot time to put themselves.
Lack of Maintenance
Step 5. Clean-up your hard drive (preparation for Stage 7). Delete unused programs and exchange old files into a CD. Unplayed games, tons of family pictures, zipped files that you have previously opened, applications you have not 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 comprise the added care step of cleaning the Windows registry, and you’ll find plenty of apps to assist do that. For the most part, registry care won’t make a critical difference, and unless you’re very comfy with Windows, and carefully make copies of-the registry, you may do serious damage by creating registry changes, so this measure is not contained
Action 6. Have it fix Code Eror Doctor.
Step 7. Defragment your personal computer.
Hopefully, now that you have have finished, you will find a marked improvement in pc performance.
