Because several readers write about their computer reacting slowly, I am posting a summary listing of basic steps you can take to solve the Free Downloads For Error 1316issue, and briefly discussing the three most common causes : malware, uncontrolled applications, and insufficient care.
Possibly the most important factor to a poorly performing computer is malware.
Action 1. Revise the definitions of your antivirus and run a full scan of your hard disk drive in Safe Mode. Solve any unfixable problems. Note that some viruses require additional steps until they can be removed; typically a websearch will find specific directions or a particular removal tool. If you cannot find a solution, use the Bc forums to obtain support.
Step Two. If the slowness is unexpected, and you have recently downloaded an application, the problem may reside there. Test this by entirely eliminating it. A wise user will normally perform a internet search about the application before installing because in most cases, any potential trouble with malware or poor performance will have appeared.
Step 3. Adware and Spyware can dramatically impact your computer’s operation, and these are throughout the Net. A very recent research indicated that one out of every 20 executable files on Web sites is spyware, and 1 in 25 domains contain at least one piece of spyware waiting for victims.
Update the explanations of your antispyware programs and scan your hard drives in Safe Mode. Experienced customers will often run 2 or 3 of these applications, because each company has its own requirements for what constitutes spyware and will only search against their own established. (A set of very good, free antispyware programs is provided by BC). Again, resolve any open issues before continuing to the next phase.
For additional reading about Malicious software and some malware removal applications, use BC’s Tutorial section; most of the applications have very good Help documents that explain how they operate also as the special characteristics of each.
Step 4. Evaluation applications that self-launching on startup. You computer may become a battleground for your consideration. Many programs, for example, install a rapid-start feature which allows them to be exposed rapidly; other programs may include an automatic update feature that requires them to be working in the background. Each of these decreases your launch Windows and each needs a little bit of assets while your computer is running.
You may use its startup tool that lists startups and allows you to turn off any you do not want, if, like, you have Spybot Search and Destroy. Remember that Bc maintains a quite complete Startup Database that contains info about whether the item is needed, elective, or unnecessary, in case you are uncertain about what may be safely deleted.
At-the same time, remember that those icons on your own Background also take a modest number of trunk time to put themselves.
Absence of Maintenance
Step 5. Clean up your hard drive (preparation for Step 7). Delete unused programs and exchange old files to your CD. Unplayed games, lots of family pictures, zipped files which you have previously opened, applications you haven’t used in two years, software for the old printer you put away last year—these are some types of files you can delete.
(Note for higher level users: some professionals would include the added care step of cleaning up the Windows registry, and you’ll find several applications to assist do that. For the most part, registry maintenance will not make a critical difference, and unless you are quite comfy with Windows, and carefully make copies of the registry, you may do severe harm by making registry modifications, so this measure is not contained
Action 6. Have it fix Free Downloads For Error 1316.
Step 7. Defragment your computer.
Hopefully, since you have have finished, you’ll find a noticeable enhancement in computer performance.
