I’m posting a summary record of general 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 write about their computer responding slowly.
Perhaps the most important factor to a poorly performing computer is malware.
Action 1. Revise the definitions of your anti virus and operate a full scan of your hard disk in Safe Mode. Solve any unfixable issues. Note that some infections need extra measures until they may be removed; typically a internet search will find specific directions or a particular removal tool. Use the BC forums to obtain help, if you can’t find a solution.
Step 2. If the sluggishness is unanticipated, and you have recently downloaded an application, the issue might reside there. Check this by totally removing it. A smart user will typically perform a web search about the program before downloading it because in most cases, any potential issue with malware or poor performance will have surfaced.
Step 3. Adware and Spyware can radically impact your personal computer’s functionality, and these are around the Internet.
Seasoned users will regularly operate 2 or 3 of the applications, because each company has its own requirements for what constitutes spyware and will only search against their own established. (A record of really good, free anti spyware applications is given by BC). Again, solve any open issues before continuing to the next phase.
Stage 4. Evaluation programs that self-launching on startup. You pc may be a battleground for your attention. Many programs, for instance, install a fast-launch feature which enables them to be exposed swiftly; other programs will include an automatic update feature that requires them to be operating in the background. Each of these decreases your launch Windows and each requires a little bit of resources while your computer is running.
Remember that Bc maintains a really comprehensive Startup Database that contains info about whether the item is needed, discretionary, or unnecessary, in case you are uncertain about what could be safely removed.
At-the same time, remember that those symbols on your own Background also take a small amount of boot time to place themselves.
Lack of Maintenance
Step 5. Clean-up your hard drive (preparation for Step 7). Delete unused applications and exchange old files to your CD. Unplayed games, tons of family images, zipped files which you have previously opened, applications you have not found in two years, software for that old printer you put away last year—these are some examples of files you can delete. Then use Window’s Disk Clean-up to remove temporary internet files, temporary PC health files, etc.
(Note for advanced users: some experts would include the additional maintenance stage of cleaning up the Windows registry, and you’ll find several applications to help do that. For the most part, so this step isn’t contained, you may do serious damage by making registry changes, registry care won’t make a vital difference, and unless you are very comfortable with Windows, and carefully make backups of-the registry
Step 6. Run scandisk / checkdisk in Safe Mode. Have it mend Error 1706 Visual Studio.
Stage 7. Defragment your personal computer.
Hopefully, now that you have have concluded, you’ll see a marked enhancement in pc functionality.
