Because many readers reveal their computer responding slowly, I’m submitting a summary checklist of basic steps you can take to resolve the Install Error 1708problem, and briefly discussing the three most common causes : malware, uncontrolled applications, and lack of maintenance.
Maybe the most important contributor to a poorly performing computer is malware.
Action 1. Revise the definitions of your anti virus and operate a complete scan of your drive in Safe Mode. Resolve any unfixable issues. Notice that some viruses require additional measures before they may be removed; usually a internet search will locate specific instructions or a special removal tool. If you fail to find a solution, use the Bc forums to obtain assistance.
2. If the slowness is surprising, and you have recently downloaded an application, the issue may rest there. Test this by entirely eliminating it. A user will normally perform a websearch about the program before getting because in most instances, any potential issue with malware or inferior performance will have surfaced.
Action three. Adware and Spyware can dramatically effect your personal computer’s performance, and these are throughout the Web. 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.
Revise the explanations of your antispyware programs and check your hard drives in Safe Mode. Seasoned users will routinely run two or three of the programs, because each business has its own requirements for what constitutes spyware and will simply search against their own established. (A set of really great, free antispyware applications is given by BC). Again, resolve any open issues before continuing to the next step.
For additional reading about Malware and some malware removal applications, use BC’s Tutorial section; most of the programs have very good Help files that describe how they function too as the special attributes of each.
Step 4. Evaluation apps that self-launching on startup. You computer can be a battleground for your attention. Many programs, for example, install a quick-start feature that allows them to be exposed fast; other programs will contain an automated update feature that requires them to be working in the background. Each of these slows down your introduction Windows and each requires a little bit of sources while your computer is running.
You can use its startup tool that lists startups and lets you to turn off any you usually do not want, if, for example, you have Spybot Search and Destroy. If you’re unsure about what can be safely deleted, remember that BC maintains a quite complete Startup Database that includes info about whether the item is required, elective, or unnecessary.
At-the same time, remember that those symbols in your Desktop also take a modest amount of trunk time to set themselves.
Lack of Maintenance
Step 5. Cleanup your hard drive (preparation for Stage 7). Delete unused programs and transfer old files into a CD. Unplayed games, lots of family pictures, zipped files which you have previously opened, applications you haven’t found in two years, software for that old printer you put away last year—these are a few examples of files you can delete.
(Note for higher level users: some specialists would include the added maintenance stage of cleaning up the Windows registry, and there are several apps to help do this. For the most part, so this measure isn’t contained, you can do serious damage by making registry changes, registry care will not make a major difference, and unless you are very comfy with Windows, and cautiously make copies of the registry
Step 6. Have it fix Install Error 1708.
Action 7. Defragment your computer.
Hopefully, since you have have concluded, you will find a marked improvement in computer functionality.
