Maybe the greatest factor to a badly performing computer is malware. Often this is related to downloading a software that includes spyware, by not having browser security options high enough, by carelessly downloading P2P files, or by failing to install security areas in a timely manner.
Stage 1. Revise the explanations of your antivirus and operate a full scan of your hard drive in Safe Mode. Solve any unfixable problems. Note that some infections need additional measures before they can be removed; typically 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 help.
Step Two. You’ve recently downloaded an application, and if the slowness is abrupt, the problem might live there. Check this by completely eliminating it. A smart user will generally perform a internet search about the program before installing because in most cases, any possible problem with malware or poor performance will have appeared.
Step 3. Adware and Spyware can dramatically impact your personal computer’s performance, and these are all over the Internet. A very recent study indicated that one out of every 20 executable files on Websites is spyware, and 1 in 25 domains contain at least one bit of spyware waiting for victims.
Seasoned customers will regularly operate several of the applications, because each company has its own criteria for what constitutes spyware and will only search against their own set. (A list of quite great, free anti spyware applications is provided by BC). Again, solve any open issues before continuing to the next phase.
Step 4. Review programs that self-launch on startup. You computer can become a arena for your consideration. Many programs, for instance, install a fast-launch feature which permits them to be exposed immediately; other programs may comprise an automated update feature that demands them to be working in the background. Each of these decreases your launching Windows and each requires a small bit of sources while your personal computer is running.
You can use its startup tool that lists startups and allows you to turn off any you do not need, if, for example, you have Spybot Search and Destroy. In case you are uncertain about what can be safely deleted, remember that Bc maintains a quite complete Startup Database that contains information about whether the inquired item is required, discretionary, or not needed.
At the same time, remember that all those symbols on your own Desktop also take a small amount of trunk time to place themselves.
Lack of Care
Step 5. Clean up your hard drive (preparation for Step 7). Delete unused programs and move old files to a CD. Unplayed games, lots of family pictures, zipped files that you have already 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 sophisticated users: some professionals would include the added care step of cleaning the Windows registry, and you will find plenty of programs to help try this. For the most part, so this step is not contained, you may do serious harm by making registry changes, registry care will not make a vital difference, and unless you’re really comfortable with Windows, and cautiously make backups of the registry
Stage 6. Run scandisk / checkdisk in Safe Mode. Have it repair Kb961501 Win7.
Stage 7. Defragment your computer.
Hopefully, now that you have have concluded, you’ll find a noticeable improvement in computer performance.
