Because many readers reveal their computer responding slowly, I am posting a summary checklist of basic things you can do to solve the Registry Boostproblem, and briefly discussing the three most frequent causes : malware, uncontrolled applications, and insufficient care.
Perhaps the greatest factor to a badly performing computer is malware.
Action 1. Revise the explanations of your antivirus and operate a complete scan of your drive in Safe Mode. Solve any unfixable issues. Note that some infections require extra measures until they may be removed; normally a web search will find specific directions or a special removal tool. If you cannot find a solution, use the Bc forums to request assistance.
Step 2. You’ve recently downloaded an application, and if the slowness is abrupt, the problem might live there. Check this by fully eliminating it. A user will typically perform a websearch about the application before installing because in most cases, any potential issue with malware or poor performance will have appeared.
Step three. Adware and Spyware can drastically effect your computer’s operation, and these are all over the Web.
Update the explanations of your anti spyware applications and scan your hard drives in Safe Mode. Seasoned users will routinely operate 2 or 3 of these applications, because each company has its own requirements for what constitutes spyware and will just search against their own set. (A set of quite good, free anti spyware programs is provided by BC). Again, resolve any open issues before continuing to the next phase.
For additional reading about Malicious software and some malware removal applications, use BC’s Tutorial section; most of the programs have really good Help files that describe how they operate also as the unique attributes of each.
Step 4. Review programs that self-start on startup. You pc can become a battleground for your interest. Many programs, for instance, install a quick-launch feature that allows them to be exposed quickly; other programs may contain an automated update feature that requires them to be working in the background. Each of these slows down your introduction Windows and each requires a little bit of resources while your computer is running.
Remember that Bc maintains a really complete Startup Database that contains information about whether the questioned item is required, discretionary, or not needed, if you are unsure about what may be safely deleted.
At the same time, remember that those symbols in your Desktop also take a small number of trunk time to set themselves.
Absence of Care
Stage 5. Clean-up your hard drive (preparation for Action 7). Delete unused programs and transfer old files to a CD. Unplayed games, lots of family pictures, zipped files that you have opened, applications you have not used in two years, software for that old printer you put 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 specialists would include the additional upkeep step of cleaning up the Windows registry, and there are several applications to help try this. For the most part, registry care will not make a major difference, and unless you’re quite comfortable with Windows, and carefully make copies of the registry, you may do significant damage by creating registry changes, so this step is not included
Stage 6. Have it repair Registry Boost.
Step 7. Defragment your computer.
Hopefully, now that you have have finished, you’ll see a noticeable improvement in pc performance.
