Perhaps the greatest factor to a badly performing computer is malware.
Stage 1. Revise the explanations of your antivirus and run a complete scan of your hard disk drive in Safe Mode. Resolve any unfixable problems. Notice that some viruses need additional steps until they could be removed; normally a web search will find 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 saved an application, and if the sluggishness is unexpected, the problem might dwell there. Test this by totally eliminating it. A user will generally perform a websearch about the program before installing because in most cases, any potential trouble with malware or inferior performance will have surfaced.
Stage 3. Adware and Spyware can drastically effect your computer’s performance, and these are around the World wide web.
Revise the definitions of your anti spyware applications and scan your hard drives in Safe Mode. Seasoned users will routinely operate 2 or 3 of the programs, because each business has its own criteria for what constitutes spyware and will just search against their own set. (A list of quite great, free antispyware programs is given by BC). Again, solve any open issues before continuing to the next step.
For further reading about Malware and some malware removal applications, use BC’s Tutorial section; most of the programs have very good Help documents that describe how they function also as the distinctive attributes of each.
Stage 4. Review apps that self-launch on startup. You computer can become a arena for your attention. Many programs, for example, install a rapid-launch feature that allows them to be exposed promptly; other programs may comprise an automatic update feature that requires them to be running in the background. Each of these slows down your launch Windows and each needs a little bit of sources while your computer is running.
The easiest approach to examine and than to handle start ups would be to work with one of the many little resources available (see the BC list of free apps). You can use its startup tool that lists startups and allows you to show off any you do not want, if, like, you have Spybot Search and Destroy. Remember that BC maintains a quite comprehensive Startup Database that includes information about whether the item is needed, elective, or unnecessary, in case you are uncertain about what could be safely removed.
At the same time, remember that all those icons on your own Desktop also take a small number of boot time to place themselves.
Lack of Upkeep
Step 5. Cleanup your hard drive (preparation for Stage 7). Delete unused applications and move old files to your CD. Unplayed games, lots of family pictures, zipped files that you have previously opened, applications you haven’t used in two years, software for that old printer you threw away last year—these are some examples of files you can delete.
(Note for advanced level users: some specialists would include the added care step of cleaning the Windows registry, and there are plenty of programs to help try this. For the most part, registry care won’t make a vital difference, and unless you’re quite comfortable with Windows, and carefully make copies of-the registry, you may do severe harm by creating registry modifications, so this measure is not included
Step 6. Have it mend Error 3036.
Step 7. Defragment your computer.
Hopefully, since you have have ended, you will see a noticeable improvement in computer performance.
