I’m publishing a summary record of general things you can do to solve this issue, and briefly discussing the three most frequent causes : malware, uncontrolled applications, and lack of maintenance, because many readers come up with their computer reacting slowly.
Perhaps the most important factor to a badly performing computer is malware.
Step 1. Revise the definitions of your anti-virus and run a complete scan of your hard disk in Safe Mode. Resolve any unfixable problems. Note that some infections require additional steps until they can be removed; generally a web search will find specific directions or a special removal tool. If you cannot find a solution, use the BC forums to request assistance.
Step 2. If the slowness is unanticipated, and you have recently saved an application, the issue might rest there. Check this by fully eliminating it. A sensible user will typically perform a websearch about the program before installing because in most cases, any potential issue with malware or poor performance will have appeared.
Action 3. Adware and Spyware can radically impact your personal computer’s functionality, and these are around the Web.
Update the explanations of your anti-spyware programs and check your hard drives in Safe Mode. Experienced users will often operate 2 or 3 of these applications, because each company has its own standards for what constitutes spyware and will only search against their own established. (A listing of really great, free anti spyware applications is given by BC). Again, solve any open issues before proceeding to the next step.
Step 4. Review apps that self-launch on startup. You pc can become a battleground for your consideration. Many programs, for instance, install a fast-start feature that allows them to be opened promptly; other programs will include an automated update feature that demands them to be working in the background. Your launching Windows are slowed down by each of these and each requires a little bit of sources while your personal computer is running.
Remember that BC maintains a really comprehensive Startup Database that includes info about whether the item is required, discretionary, or not needed, in case you are unsure about what can be safely removed.
At-the same time, remember that those icons on your Background also take a small amount of trunk time to set themselves.
Absence of Maintenance
Step 5. Delete unused applications and move old files to a CD. Unplayed games, lots of family images, zipped files which you have opened, applications you have not found in two years, software for the old printer you threw away last year—these are some types of files you can delete. Then use Window’s Disk Clean-up to delete temporary internet files, temporary PC health files, etc.
(Note for advanced level users: some specialists would include the additional care stage of cleaning up the Windows registry, and you will find several applications to help try this. For the most part, registry care won’t make a major difference, and unless you are very comfortable with Windows, and carefully make backups of-the registry, you may do significant harm by making registry changes, so this step isn’t contained
Action 6. Have it mend Kb810558.
Action 7. Defragment your pc.
Hopefully, since you have have ended, you will see a noticeable improvement in computer functionality.
