Perhaps the most important contributor to a badly performing computer is malware. Often this is related to downloading an application that contains spyware, by not having browser security settings large enough, by carelessly downloading P2P files, or by failing to install security areas regularly.
Stage 1. Revise the definitions of your anti-virus and run a complete scan of your hard drive in Safe Mode. Solve any unfixable issues. Notice that some viruses need additional measures until they could be removed; usually a web search will find specific instructions or a special removal tool. If you can’t find a solution, use the BC forums to request help.
2. You’ve recently saved an application, and if the sluggishness is unexpected, the problem may rest there. Test this by completely eliminating it. A user will normally perform a internet search about the program before installing because in most cases, any possible problem with malware or poor performance will have appeared.
Stage three. Adware and Spyware can dramatically effect your personal computer’s operation, and these are around the Net.
Experienced customers will often operate two or three of the applications, because each company has its own standards for what constitutes spyware and will only search against their own set. (A set of very good, free anti spyware applications is provided by BC). Again, solve any open issues before proceeding to the next step.
Step 4. Evaluation programs that self-launch on startup. You computer can become a arena for your interest. Many programs, for instance, install a rapid-launch feature which allows them to be exposed promptly; other programs will include an automated update feature that requires them to be running in the background. Each of these slows down your launch Windows and each needs a small bit of resources while your personal computer is running.
If you’re unsure about what could be safely deleted, remember that BC maintains a quite complete Startup Database that contains info about whether the inquired item is needed, discretionary, or unnecessary.
At the same time, remember that all those icons in your Desktop also take a modest number of trunk time to set themselves.
Absence of Care
Stage 5. Clean up your hard drive (preparation for Stage 7). Delete unused applications and exchange old files into a CD. Unplayed games, lots of family images, zipped files which you have opened, applications you have not found in two years, software for that old printer you put away last year—these are a few examples of files you can delete. Then use Window’s Disk Cleanup to remove temporary internet files, temporary PC health files, etc.
(Note for advanced level users: some specialists would include the added maintenance stage of cleaning up the Windows registry, and you will find several apps to help do this. For the most part, so this measure isn’t contained, you can do significant harm by making registry changes, registry care will not make a significant difference, and unless you are really comfy with Windows, and cautiously make backups of-the registry
Stage 6. Run scandisk / checkdisk in Safe Mode. Have it fix Machine Speed.
Action 7. Defragment your pc.
Hopefully, now that you have have concluded, you will see a noticeable improvement in pc performance.
