I am posting a summary record of general steps you can take to resolve this issue, and briefly discussing the three most frequent causes : malware, uncontrolled applications, and insufficient care, because several readers reveal their computer responding slowly.
Perhaps the greatest factor to a badly performing computer is malware.
Action 1. Revise the explanations of your antivirus and run a full scan of your hard drive in Safe Mode. Resolve any unfixable problems. Note that some viruses need extra steps until they may be removed; generally a web search will locate specific directions or a special removal tool. If you cannot find a answer, use the Bc forums to request help.
2. If the slowness is sudden, and you have recently downloaded an application, the problem might rest there. Test this by fully removing it. A user will generally perform a web search about the application before downloading it because in most cases, any possible problem with malware or inferior performance will have surfaced.
Action 3. Adware and Spyware can dramatically effect your computer’s operation, and these are throughout the Web. A very recent research showed that one out-of every 20 executable files on Websites is spyware, and 1 in 25 domains include at least one bit of spyware waiting for victims.
Experienced customers will regularly operate 2 or 3 of the programs, because each business has its own criteria for what constitutes spyware and will just search against their own established. (A listing of really great, free anti spyware applications is provided by BC). Again, solve any open issues before proceeding to the next phase.
For further reading about Malware and some malware removal applications, use BC’s Tutorial section; most of the applications have very good Help files that clarify how they operate as well as the special characteristics of each.
Step 4. Evaluation programs that self-start on startup. You pc may be a battleground for your consideration. Many programs, for example, install a quick-launch feature that enables them to be opened fast; other programs may comprise an automated 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 small bit of resources while your computer is running.
Remember that BC maintains a very comprehensive Startup Database that contains information about whether the item is required, elective, or not needed, in case you are uncertain about what may be safely deleted.
At the same time, remember that all those symbols on your own Desktop also take a modest amount of trunk time to set themselves.
Absence of Upkeep
Step 5. Clean up your hard drive (preparation for Action 7). Delete unused programs and move old files to a CD. Unplayed games, tons of family pictures, zipped files which you have previously opened, applications you have not used in two years, software for that old printer you threw away last year—these are some examples of files you can delete.
(Note for higher level users: some specialists would comprise the added maintenance stage of cleaning the Windows registry, and there are several programs to help do this. For the most part, registry maintenance won’t make a vital difference, and unless you are really comfortable with Windows, and carefully make copies of-the registry, you can do significant harm by making registry changes, so this measure is not contained

Action 7. Defragment your computer.
Hopefully, since you have have finished, you’ll find a marked enhancement in pc operation.
