Because many readers come up with their computer responding slowly, I am publishing a summary listing of general steps you can take to solve the Image Uploader Activexissue, and briefly discussing the three most frequent causes : malware, uncontrolled applications, and lack of care.
Maybe the most important factor to a badly performing computer is malware.
Step 1. Update the definitions of your anti virus and run a complete scan of your hard drive in Safe Mode. Resolve any unfixable problems. Note that some viruses require extra measures until they may be removed; generally a internet search will locate specific directions or a particular removal tool. If you can’t find a solution, use the Bc forums to obtain support.
2. You’ve recently downloaded an application, and if the slowness is unexpected, the issue may dwell there. Check this by entirely eliminating it. A user will normally perform a websearch about the program before installing because in most cases, any potential issue with malware or inferior performance will have appeared.
Step three. Adware and Spyware can radically impact your computer’s functionality, and these are throughout the Internet.
Experienced users will often operate 2 or 3 of these programs, because each business has its own requirements for what constitutes spyware and will only search against their own established. (A set of quite great, free anti spyware programs is given by BC). Again, solve any open issues before proceeding to the next phase.
Stage 4. Review programs that self-launching on startup. You pc can become a arena for your interest. Many programs, for instance, install a rapid-start feature that enables them to be exposed promptly; other programs may contain an automatic update feature that demands them to be operating in the background. Your launching Windows are slowed down by each of these and each needs a little bit of assets while your personal computer is running.
The easiest method to examine and than to handle startups is to work with one of many little resources available (see the BC list of free applications). If you are unsure about what can be safely removed, remember that Bc maintains a quite comprehensive Startup Database that contains information about whether the item is required, discretionary, or unnecessary.
At-the same time, remember that those icons on your Desktop also take a small amount of boot time to put themselves.
Lack of Maintenance
Step 5. Delete unused programs and transfer old files to your CD. Unplayed games, tons of family images, zipped files that you have already opened, applications you have not found in two years, software for the old printer you threw away last year—these are a few examples of files you can delete. Then use Window’s Disk Cleanup to delete temporary internet files, temporary PC health files, etc.
(Note for sophisticated users: some experts would include the additional maintenance step of cleaning the Windows registry, and there are plenty of applications to help do that. For the most part, registry care will not make a significant difference, and unless you are very comfy with Windows, and carefully make copies of-the registry, you may do serious damage by creating registry changes, so this step isn’t included
Step 6. Run scandisk / checkdisk in Safe Mode. Have it repair Image Uploader Activex.
Stage 7. Defragment your computer.
Hopefully, since you have have finished, you will see a noticeable improvement in pc operation.
