I’m submitting a summary listing of general things you can do to resolve this problem, and briefly discussing the three most common causes : malware, uncontrolled applications, and lack of care, because several readers write about their computer responding slowly.
Perhaps the greatest contributor to a poorly performing computer is malware. Often this is associated with downloading an application that contains spyware, by not having browser security options high enough, by carelessly downloading P2P files, or by declining to install security sections in a timely manner.
Action 1. Revise the explanations of your anti virus and operate a complete scan of your hard disk in Safe Mode. Resolve any unfixable problems. Notice that some viruses need extra steps before they can be removed; typically a websearch will locate specific instructions or a special removal tool. If you can’t find a answer, use the BC forums to obtain support.
Step 2. You have recently saved an application, and if the slowness is unanticipated, the issue may reside there. Test this by totally eliminating it. A user will typically perform a internet search about the program before downloading it because in most instances, any possible difficulty with malware or inferior performance will have surfaced.
Stage three. Adware and Spyware can dramatically impact your computer’s operation, and these are throughout the Net. A very recent study indicated that one out of every 20 executable files on Web sites is spyware, and 1 in 25 domains comprise at least one bit of spyware waiting for victims.
Seasoned users will regularly run 2 or 3 of these applications, because each business has its own criteria for what constitutes spyware and will simply search against their own set. (A record of quite great, free anti-spyware applications is provided by BC). Again, resolve any open issues before continuing to the next step.
Step 4. Review applications that self-start on startup. You computer may be a arena for your attention. Many programs, for instance, install a fast-launch feature which allows them to be exposed promptly; other programs will contain an automated update feature that requires them to be working in the background. Each of these slows down your introduction Windows and each needs a little bit of sources while your computer is running.
If you are unsure about what can be safely deleted, remember that Bc maintains a really comprehensive Startup Database that contains information about whether the item is needed, discretionary, or unnecessary.
At the same time, remember that all those symbols on your own Background also take a modest amount of trunk time to set themselves.
Lack of Upkeep
Stage 5. Clean-up your hard drive (preparation for Step 7). Delete unused applications and exchange old files to a CD. Unplayed games, tons of family pictures, zipped files that you have already opened, applications you have not used in two years, software for the old printer you threw away last year—these are some types of files you can delete.
(Note for higher level users: some professionals would include the added upkeep stage of cleaning the Windows registry, and there are plenty of programs to help do that. For the most part, registry care will not make a major difference, and unless you’re very comfortable with Windows, and cautiously make copies of-the registry, you can do severe harm by creating registry changes, so this measure is not contained
Stage 6. Run scandisk / checkdisk in Safe Mode. Have it repair Kyocera 1102.
Step 7. Defragment your pc.
Hopefully, since you have have finished, you will see a marked improvement in computer operation.
