Because several readers come up with their computer responding slowly, I am submitting a summary checklist of basic steps you can take to solve the Cooltype Errorissue, and briefly discussing the three most frequent causes : malware, uncontrolled applications, and insufficient care.
Maybe the most important contributor to a badly performing computer is malware. Often this is related to downloading an application that includes spyware, by not having browser security settings large enough, by carelessly downloading P2P files, or by failing to install security patches regularly.
Stage 1. Update the definitions of your anti-virus and run a complete scan of your hard drive in Safe Mode. Resolve any unfixable problems. Notice that some infections require additional steps until they can be removed; normally a internet search will find specific instructions or a particular removal tool. If you cannot find a solution, use the Bc forums to request help.
Step Two. You have recently downloaded an application, and if the slowness is sudden, the problem may live there. Test this by totally eliminating it. A user will normally perform a internet search about the application before downloading it because in most cases, any possible issue with malware or poor performance will have appeared.
Stage three. Adware and Spyware can dramatically effect your personal computer’s functionality, and these are all over the Internet. 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.
Seasoned customers will routinely run two or three of these applications, because each company has its own criteria for what constitutes spyware and will simply search against their own set. (A record of quite good, free anti spyware applications is provided by BC). Again, solve any open issues before proceeding to the next step.
For further reading about Malware and some malware removal applications, use BC’s Tutorial section; most of the programs have really great Help files that explain how they function also as the distinctive characteristics of each.
Step 4. Review applications that self-launching on startup. You pc can become a battleground for your attention. Many programs, for example, install a fast-launch feature which allows them to be opened rapidly; other programs may include an automatic update feature that demands them to be running in the background. Your launching Windows are slowed down by each of these and each needs a small bit of sources while your personal computer is running.
You can use its startup tool that lists startups and allows you to show off any you do not need, if, for example, you have Spybot Search and Destroy. If you are uncertain about what could be safely deleted, remember that Bc maintains a very comprehensive Startup Database that includes information about whether the item is needed, optional, or not needed.
At-the same time, remember that those icons on your own Desktop also take a modest amount of trunk time to set themselves.
Lack of Care
Stage 5. Delete unused applications and exchange old files to your CD. Unplayed games, lots of family images, zipped files that you have opened, applications you have not found in two years, software for the old printer you put away last year—these are a few 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 higher level users: some specialists would contain the additional care stage of cleaning up the Windows registry, and there are plenty of applications 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 carefully make backups of-the registry, you may do significant harm by making registry modifications, so this measure is not included
Action 6. Run scandisk / checkdisk in Safe Mode. Have it repair Cooltype Error.
Stage 7. Defragment your pc.
Hopefully, now that you have have finished, you will find a marked enhancement in pc functionality.
