Because several readers reveal their computer responding slowly, I am posting a summary record of general steps you can take to solve the Kernel32 Ddlissue, and briefly discussing the three most common causes : malware, uncontrolled applications, and lack of care.
Perhaps the greatest factor to a poorly performing computer is malware. Often this is associated with downloading a software that contains spyware, by not having browser security options high enough, by carelessly downloading P2P files, or by failing to install security patches in a timely manner.
Action 1. Revise the definitions of your anti-virus and run a full scan of your hard disk in Safe Mode. Resolve any unfixable problems. Note that some viruses require extra measures until they could be removed; ordinarily a web search will find specific directions or a particular removal tool. If you can’t find a solution, use the Bc forums to request help.
Step Two. You have recently saved an application, and if the slowness is unexpected, the problem may reside there. Check this by completely eliminating it. A user will generally perform a internet search about the application before downloading it because in most instances, any possible trouble with malware or poor performance will have surfaced.
Stage 3. Adware and Spyware can dramatically effect your personal computer’s operation, and these are around the Web.
Update the definitions of your anti spyware programs and check your hard drives in Safe Mode. Experienced customers will frequently operate two or three of these programs, because each company has its own criteria for what constitutes spyware and will only search against their own set. (A listing of quite good, free antispyware programs is provided by BC). Again, solve any open issues before proceeding to the next phase.
Stage 4. Evaluation apps that self-launching on startup. You computer may be a arena for your consideration. Many programs, for example, install a fast-start feature which allows them to be opened promptly; other programs may contain an automatic update feature that demands them to be running in the background. Your launching Windows are slowed down by each of these and each needs a little bit of sources while your personal computer is running.
In case you are unsure about what can be safely removed, remember that Bc maintains a very comprehensive Startup Database that includes information about whether the item is required, optional, or not needed.
At the same time, remember that those icons on your Desktop also take a small amount of trunk time to place themselves.
Lack of Upkeep
Stage 5. Clean up your hard drive (preparation for Step 7). Delete unused programs and exchange old files to your 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 types of files you can delete. Then use Window’s Disk Cleanup to remove temporary internet files, temporary PC health files, etc.
(Note for advanced users: some professionals would include the added care stage of cleaning the Windows registry, and you’ll find several programs to assist do that. For the most part, so this measure isn’t included, you can do serious damage by making registry modifications, registry care won’t make a vital difference, and unless you are very comfy with Windows, and cautiously make copies of the registry
Action 6. Run scandisk / checkdisk in Safe Mode. Have it mend Kernel32 Ddl.
Step 7. Defragment your personal computer. Windows will set new documents in any available open space; defragging will set affiliated sections of files closer together therefore your read arm has less going around the hdd to do, saving wear-and tear while racing up programs.
Hopefully, since you have have finished, you’ll find a noticeable enhancement in computer operation.
