I am publishing a summary listing of general steps you can take to resolve this issue, and briefly discussing the three most common causes : malware, uncontrolled applications, and insufficient care, because many readers come up with their computer reacting slowly.
Perhaps the greatest contributor to a poorly performing computer is malware.
Action 1. Update the definitions of your anti-virus and run a full scan of your hard disk in Safe Mode. Solve any unfixable issues. Notice that some infections require additional steps before they could be removed; typically a web search will locate specific instructions or a special removal tool. If you cannot find a answer, use the BC forums to request assistance.
Step 2. If the sluggishness is unanticipated, and you have recently downloaded an application, the problem might rest there. Test this by fully removing it. A user will normally perform a web search about the application before downloading it because in most cases, any possible trouble with malware or inferior performance will have surfaced.
Action 3. Adware and Spyware can radically effect your computer’s functionality, and these are throughout the Web. A very recent research showed that one out of every 20 executable files on Web sites is spyware, and 1 in 25 domains include at least one bit of spyware waiting for victims.
Update the definitions of your anti spyware programs and check your hard drives in Safe Mode. Seasoned users will consistently operate 2 or 3 of the programs, because each business has its own standards for what constitutes spyware and will only search against their own established. (A record of very great, free anti spyware applications is given by BC). Again, solve any open issues before continuing to the next step.
Stage 4. Evaluation programs that self-launch on startup. You computer may be a arena for your interest. Many programs, for example, install a quick-start feature that permits them to be opened rapidly; other programs may comprise an automated update feature that demands them to be running in the background. Each of these slows down your launch Windows and each requires a small bit of resources while your computer is running.
The simplest approach to examine and than to handle startups is to use one of the many small utilities available (see the Bc list of free applications). In case you are uncertain about what can be safely removed, remember that Bc maintains a quite complete Startup Database that contains information about whether the inquired item is required, elective, or not needed.
At the same time, remember that all those icons on your Desktop also take a modest amount of trunk time to set themselves.
Lack of Care
Stage 5. Cleanup your hard drive (preparation for Step 7). Delete unused programs and move old files to a CD. Unplayed games, lots of family images, zipped files which you have previously opened, applications you have not found 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 professionals would contain the additional care step of cleaning up the Windows registry, and there are several applications to assist do this. For the most part, registry maintenance will not make a major difference, and unless you’re very comfortable with Windows, and cautiously make copies of the registry, you can do serious harm by creating registry modifications, so this step is not included
Stage 6. Have it mend Error Message 0x80072ee2.
Action 7. Defragment your pc. Windows will put new files in any available open space; defragging will place affiliated sections of files closer together therefore your read arm has less going around the hdd to do, saving wear and tear while racing up plans.
Hopefully, now that you have have concluded, you’ll find a noticeable enhancement in computer performance.
