Because many readers reveal their computer responding slowly, I’m submitting a summary record of basic steps you can take to resolve the Kb-9801rissue, and briefly discussing the three most common causes : malware, uncontrolled applications, and lack of maintenance.
Possibly the most important contributor to a poorly performing computer is malware. Usually this is related to downloading a software that contains spyware, by not having browser security settings large enough, by carelessly downloading P2P files, or by declining to install security areas in a timely manner.
Stage 1. Revise the explanations of your antivirus and run a full scan of your hard disk drive in Safe Mode. Solve any unfixable issues. Notice that some infections require additional steps before they can be removed; normally a internet search will find specific instructions or a special removal tool. Use the BC forums to request support, if you fail to find a solution.
Step Two. You’ve recently downloaded an application, and if the slowness is surprising, the problem may live there. Check this by completely eliminating it. A sensible user will usually perform a internet search about the application before getting because in most instances, any possible problem with malware or inferior performance will have surfaced.
Step 3. Adware and Spyware can radically effect your computer’s performance, and these are around the Net.
Experienced users will regularly run 2 or 3 of these applications, because each company has its own criteria for what constitutes spyware and will simply search against their own set. (A record of really great, free antispyware applications is supplied by BC). Again, solve any open issues before continuing to the next phase.
Stage 4. Evaluation applications that self-launch on startup. You pc may be a arena for your interest. Many programs, for instance, install a rapid-launch feature which allows them to be exposed instantly; other programs will include an automatic update feature that requires them to be working in the background. Each of these slows down your debut Windows and each needs a little bit of assets while your personal computer is running.
If you’re unsure about what could be safely removed, remember that Bc maintains a quite comprehensive Startup Database that includes information about whether the questioned item is needed, elective, or not needed.
At-the same time, remember that those icons on your own Desktop also take a modest number of boot time to set themselves.
Absence of Maintenance
Step 5. Clean-up your hard drive (preparation for Step 7). Delete unused programs and exchange old files to a CD. Unplayed games, tons 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 examples of files you can delete.
(Note for higher level users: some professionals would contain the added care step of cleaning the Windows registry, and you will find plenty of apps to help try this. For the most part, registry care won’t make a vital difference, and unless you are quite comfortable with Windows, and cautiously make backups of the registry, you may do severe harm by making registry modifications, so this step is not contained
Step 6. Run scandisk / checkdisk in Safe Mode. Have it repair Kb-9801r.
Action 7. Defragment your computer.
Hopefully, now that you have have finished, you’ll find a noticeable enhancement in computer performance.
