I’m submitting a summary listing of basic things you can do to resolve this issue, and briefly discussing the three most common causes : malware, uncontrolled applications, and insufficient care, because several readers reveal their computer reacting slowly.
Possibly the most important factor to a poorly performing computer is malware. Generally this is associated with downloading a software that contains spyware, by not having browser security settings high enough, by carelessly downloading P2P files, or by declining to install security areas regularly.
Stage 1. Update the explanations of your anti virus and operate a complete scan of your hard drive in Safe Mode. Resolve any unfixable issues. Notice that some viruses require extra measures before they can be removed; usually a internet search will find specific instructions or a particular removal tool. If you fail to find a answer, use the BC forums to obtain help.
Step Two. If the slowness is unexpected, and you’ve recently downloaded an application, the issue might live there. Check this by completely removing it. A smart user will normally perform a web search about the application before downloading it because in most cases, any potential difficulty with malware or poor performance will have appeared.
Stage three. Adware and Spyware can radically effect your computer’s operation, and these are throughout the Internet. A very recent research indicated that one out-of every 20 executable files on Websites is spyware, and 1 in 25 domains include at least one piece of spyware waiting for victims.
Seasoned customers will often run two or three of the applications, because each business has its own criteria for what constitutes spyware and will just search against their own set. (A record of quite great, free antispyware programs is provided by BC). Again, solve any open issues before continuing to the next phase.
For further reading about Malicious software and some malware removal applications, use BC’s Tutorial section; most of the applications have very great Help files that clarify how they function as well as the unique characteristics of each.
Stage 4. Evaluation programs that self-launching on startup. You computer can be a arena for your consideration. Many programs, for instance, install a quick-start feature which allows them to be opened instantly; other programs may comprise an automatic update feature that demands them to be working in the background. Each of these slows down your introduction Windows and each needs a small bit of sources while your personal computer is running.
Remember that Bc maintains a really complete Startup Database that contains info about whether the item is required, optional, or unnecessary, if you’re unsure about what could be safely removed.
At-the same time, remember that those icons on your own Background also take a modest amount of boot time to place themselves.
Lack of Upkeep
Step 5. Clean up your hard drive (preparation for Action 7). Delete unused programs and move old files to your CD. Unplayed games, tons of family images, zipped files that you have previously opened, applications you haven’t used in two years, software for the old printer you threw away last year—these are some examples of files you can delete.
(Note for sophisticated users: some experts would include the additional maintenance stage of cleaning the Windows registry, and you’ll find plenty of apps to help do this. For the most part, so this measure isn’t contained, you may do serious damage by making registry changes, registry maintenance won’t make a critical difference, and unless you are really comfortable with Windows, and carefully make copies of-the registry
Step 6. Have it repair Fault Code 103.
Step 7. Defragment your pc.
Hopefully, since you have have ended, you will find a marked improvement in pc operation.
